Simon Birch

Corrected entry: During the second baseball game, Simon's baseball jersey is nicely tucked in so that you can see only the top half of his number, 8. When the third pitch is thrown and while Simon is hitting the ball, all of Simon's number 8 is fully visible on his shirt.

Correction: In between pitches, Simon could have very possibly moved causing his shirt to become untucked, thereby showing more of the 8 on his jersey.

Continuity mistake: In the Christmas Pageant scenes, Miss Leavey is seen pulling down on the rope that raises or lowers the kid playing the angel. By pulling down on the rope, the kid should go higher. But when Miss Leavey pulls down on the rope, the kid is lowered as well.

More quotes from Simon Birch

Question: After Simon had helped all of the kids out of the bus when it was in the water he was taken to the hospital where he later dies. What did he die from? Was he sick or did his body just shut down?

Answer: I don't know if it was ever stated what Simon died of, but Simon - against the odds - lived much longer than the doctor thought he would. Simon continued to "outgrow his body" (internal organs became too large for his tiny body). It can be assumed that Simon contracted pneumonia or hypothermia from being in the frigid water when he rescued the children from the submerged bus. I think Simon - expected to die at a very young age - was staying alive until he could realise his purpose or "God's Plan" for him. To "believers", Simon was "made small" and practiced holding his breath underwater (seemingly for no apparent reason) so that he'd be able to save the kids on the bus... then, having fulfilled "his purpose", was called "home."
