Corrected entry: Toward the end of the movie, George (Travolta) tells Forrest Whitaker's character to use his fertilizer on a corn crop to make the corn grow on his barren land. He says "Four years with no rotation", yet at the end where it says "1 year later", Forrest Whitaker has a bumper corn crop.
Other mistake: After John T's passing, the screen caption reads "1 year later" and they are celebrating his birthday. The light flash happened on his birthday and took three months to be diagnosed and die. The caption should actually say 9 months later.
Bonnie: George Malley! You learned the Portuguese language in 20 minutes?
George Malley: Not all of it.
Trivia: Nate Pope (Forest Whitaker) is an Amateur Radio operator with the call sign WB6QLF. QLF is amateur shorthand for "I am sending with my left foot", a reference to someone whose Morse Code sending skill is very bad. This is normally sent as a question "QLF?" meaning "Are you sending with your left foot?" to an operator who is very difficult to understand in Morse.
Question: Why didn't he use his crazy super intelligence, or his telekinesis, to either find a cure for his tumor or at the very least slide the tumor out of his own brain?
