That being said, the film is a LOT of fun for kids. I was only 11-12 years old when I saw it and I thought it was the BEST film ever made. To this day it is a guilty pleasure. I attended Space Camp myself in 1988 at the age of 13, and though the camp had changed noticeably in just the 2-3 years since the movie was filmed, certain parts of the camp stood out obviously as locations from the film. To rebut the Amazon reviewer, there ARE standards for the camp and you must have written recommendations from science and math teachers to attend. Incidentally, Space Camp is actually located in Huntsville, Alabama, but like the hundreds of other inaccuracies of the film, that is too overlooked. Interesting sidenote: the bulk of the movie was filmed inside one of the Space Camp's shuttle simulators.
All said, the film is fun for children and a lovely guilty pleasure for adults like myself who once dreamed of going into space. Just ignore the inaccuracies.
I remember the trip down there by van with my dad and two bothers. All the way from southern Minnesota to Florida by van. My brother quizzed me on every system of the shuttle and I wound up being Commander of my team.
What's this got to do with the movie? Well, if not for this movie, I never would have gone there. This movie inspired me to reach beyond what I think I can do and 'reach for the stars'. This movie taught me that anything is possible. I loved this movie then, but today I understand even more what it did for me. Great movie, great story.
