    "This would be a rare answer, but that 'I'm Still Here' montage really got to me. It was so depressing to see that Jim's father left him as a kid, and that was the main reason why Jim was depressed. Plus, later in the movie, John Silver says something very touching to Jim after the serious journey they've been on: 'You're gonna rattle the stars, you are!'"

    "I thought the whole story was beautiful, but very sad. I took my wife to see it the next day, but wouldn't tell her why it was sad. I remember the moment she figured it out. She was sitting right beside me and I just heard her start crying..."

    "My wife died in September that same year. My dog had just gotten out of spinal surgery and wasn't walking, and might or might not make it. I didn't know it yet, but the car that we'd had for 15 years was about to die on me.

    I may have been the only person in a theater crying about his wife and his dog and his car at a deep, raw level."
