Other mistake: In one of the opening scenes where the boys ride to the baseball game, the fishermen they pass make a rude comment towards them. In response, you hear Joe ring his bicycle bell and see them flip the men off. The bicycle has no bell.

More quotes from Simon Birch

Question: When Simon and Joe are ordered by the police chief to do either community service at Reverend Russell's retreat or face prison, they take the community service option. But eventually, Reverend Russell orders Simon not to come on the retreat. So, why wasn't Simon arrested?

Answer: I think they let Simon go because he was sick at the time.
