I like John Cusack, I think he's an excellent actor; but I'm not a fan to the point where I'll watch anything just because he's in it.
However, I really loved this movie.
"The time has come," the Walrus said, "To talk of many things,"
Of atoms, stars and nebulæ, of entropy and genes;
And whether one can bend space;
And why the spaceship shrinks.
You are NOT the only one who liked the movie. I thought it was truly amazing. I think Dennis is a brilliant, but very troubled little kid who just wants to be loved. He almost got me crying on a couple occasions and i just wanted to hug him. Bobby Coleman's performance was exceptional and he was soo cute.
Plus he seems like one of the most friendly and cheerful young actors out there in a world of fake smiles and forced laughs, just watch his Youtube interviews
In more or less every postive post in this thread, i wanna quote what you lothave said, becuase there have been some brilliant and very observant posts.
9/10 Martian Child, 3 of those because of Bobby's performance. (yes he was THAT good)
NATHAN GAMBLE, Bobby Coleman, Zachary Gordan and Jackson Bond are all AWESOME
