And this one time...at Space Camp...I kissed a girl under the SRBs (Solid Rocket Boosters)...and I got to go around and re-live different scenes from the movie, especially repeating all of Leaf Phoenix's star wars references during mission simulations..it was too much fun...LOL...but still true... Certainly, there are tons of things wrong about the movie that would never happen at Space Camp or in real life, but that's hollywood and that's what makes it fun. And when this was made, Space Camp itself was a pipe dream for many kids and the lucky few who got to attend as youngsters were treated like Gods, and are still revered today, so this movie was a way for us poor folks to go to camp without forking out the bucks. Therefore to those of us who actually grew up in the 80's and remember seeing this move in the theater and the excitement of a space shuttle launch and still have dreams of being an astronaut, and for those of us who have worked at Space Camp its' definately a priceless jewel in the DVD treasure chest.

A Kid's Review on March 17, 2002
Format: VHS Tape
I remember recieving this on video from my mother a few years ago. I put it aside, never watched it. It wasn't a widely released title.
Years later, 3 years ago from now, I picked it up and put it in my VCR. What I saw was one of the most beautiful, wonderful stories ever to capture an idea that space is beyond magic - it's much more.
The story starts with 3 teenagers, a kid and an instructor, taught and teaching what it is like in outer blackness, what to expect and basically how to survive. One test is to sit in a space craft and get used to its feeling. During their exploration of the space craft, a robot named 'Jinx', a handyman for N.A.S.A, who is great friends with 'Max', the young child on part of the Space Camp team, pushes the button to launch the space craft in to space, as a wish of 'Max'.
And so they are launched. The craft was only ready with 2 oxygen tanks; no where near enough to last them the flight back in to the Earth's atmosphere. Upon entering space, they must work as a team, which proved difficult during Space Camp, collect tanks of Oxygen from the space centre in the black yonder and make it back to Earth alive.
This is their one chance of working together as a team, and ultimetly, surviving.
At one point, 'Max' goes to help Andy, the instructor, who has been knocked out by an oxygen tank that flies towards her, and himself, starts to drift out in to the depths of Space. The visuals are extra-ordinary, and there is immense intense during viewing.
When the credits roll, you've just seen an epic, and you'll never be able to stop talking about it.
Beautiful.

My first impression on seeing this film the first time in 1986 was that it was going to be just another one of those teenager comedy movies and after watching the whole film from beginning to end I turned out to be wrong. The first half is some of the usual teenager antics that you would expect and by the middle it takes a very serious turn. For anyone interested in our space program which probably has more to it now than in the mid 1980's, the second portion offers a very good idea of what it would be like to take off in a shuttle and what it would be like being in space with the dangers that could take place. The space scenes and photography are very,very good. When playing this film audio wise play it on 5.1 surround. It will almost make you feel you are on board. You have some teenagers training at summer Space Camp, and when they get the chance to actually go on board a shuttle to experience what it would be like with the engines running, that was where it was supposed to be it. Due to an unforseeable circumstance which I'am not going to say so I don't spoil the film, the shuttle unexpectedly has to be launched or the 5 teenagers and female pilot trainer on board all will die. Once in space, they discover that the shuttle was not flight ready and communications with NASA are cut off. Added complication their air supply is running out. I will say that this film ends great with unexpected turns . When you see it, never say you could never do it. This is a very good enjoyable movie worth watching again and again. Very clean and good for the whole family. Very good cast : Tom Skerritt from PICKET FENCES and many guest appearances in many favorite tv shows and movies, a fantastic actor.Read more ›

"This one time at space camp...." Ahahaha...ahem...oh well. Down to business. Participants in NASA's real life Space Camp can undergo a limited version of real astronaut training. Well for a few of them the training gets a little too real. Lea Thompson, Kelly Preston, and some teen age punks are accidently blasted into space, along with astronaut Kate Capshaw. You'd think being stuck in space with those three ladies would be a fantastic weekend, even with Joaquin Phoenix along as a whiny brat. Well it is, until the oxygen starts to run out. Whu-Oh! Luckily Tom Skerrit is on the ground to help out.

This is a fun little movie meant simply as family entertainment. Of course it has technical inaccuracies, it's a movie about kids being launched into space. I just don't understand people who rag on it because some aspects aren't technically correct. This isn't a NASA training film, it's just an exciting little movie that a family can watch together. It also stars Larry B. Scott, who played Lamar in Revenge of the Nerds, and Terry O'Quinn, who played Locke in Lost.
