Simon Birch

Simon dies in the hospital shortly after he and his friend Joe get the kids out of the submerged bus. Joe grows up, has a child of his own and shares the story of Simon with him at Simon's grave.

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: Why did the mom's boyfriend Ben adopt Joe? Shouldn't the minister have adopted Joe seeing as he was the boy's father?

Answer: For the reverend to admit to being Joe's father, meaning he not only had a child out of wedlock but knowingly abandoned him, would destroy him. Ben knew him and cared about him and would be able to take care of him.
