"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 accidentally 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 film that a family can
watch together. It also stars Larry B. Scott, who also played Lamar in
Revenge of the Nerds, and Terry O'Quinn, who played Locke in Lost.
A callback to a more optimistic age
Impossible? Of course it is, but 'Space Camp' is a good 'ol piece of
wide-eyed, optimistic 80s feel-goodery. God, I miss it. But revisiting
it turned out to be more than a mere nostalgia trip. 'Space Camp' is a
well made, well acted, adventure film that deftly mixes comedy, drama
Featuring a cast of talented and likable actors that you will recognize
from better known films, top notch special effects and a rousing score
by the great John Williams, 'Space Camp' is the type of film that
today's kids need to see. Its message? Work hard, dream big and reach
for the stars. It's a lesson they're not getting from our popular
culture today, and it's one they desperately need to hear.

"Excellent family entertainment."
I love this film. It is a fun filled adventure about a group of
teenagers who attend NASA Space Camp to learn how to be astronauts.
These teenagers include Kathryn an ambitious girl (played by Lea
Thompson who played Marty's mother in the Back to the Future films),
Tish a blonde haired and semi-Valley Girl with a photographic memory
(played by Kelly Preston who has been married to John Travolta since
1991), Kevin an arrogant teenager who gradually learns about
responsibility, Rudy a bright African-American teenager and the
intelligent 12 year old Max the youngest of the group. (who is played
Joaquin Pheonix in his acting debut, back then he was credited as Leaf
Phoenix). The teacher of this group is Andie Bergstrom (played by Kate
Capshaw best known for playing Willie Scott in Indiana Jones and the
Temple of Doom and has been married to Stephen Spielberg since 1991).
These enthusiastic space students have a lot to learn at Space Camp. At
one point they have trouble simply getting along with each other. But
their biggest challenge is when they are accidentally blasted off into
space on board the Space Shuttle Atlantis. If they are to return to
Earth they must work together as a team and work like real astronauts.
It becomes a matter of life and death as if they don't succeed they'll
never return to Earth.
Although the film is fictional, Space Camp does include scenarios that
real astronauts have to deal with when they are blasted off into space.
So Space Camp is a great film to watch if you wish to learn about what
you need to learn to become an astronaut.
Overall, Space Camp is a very enjoyable movie and I recommend it to
