I saw this film when it came out on video in the United States in the mid 1980s. It was mere months after the Challenger disaster and the U.S. just wasn't in the mood to watch five plucky kids and their astronaut leader be accidentally launched (safely) into space and return (safely) home. NASA's cooperation on the film was total and it might mystify those who weren't aware of the internal politics at NASA at the time, who was deathly afraid of losing the public's interest in space travel, which at the time of the Challenger explosion was seen as "routine." NASA's participation in this film surely was meant to spark renewed interest in the shuttle program.
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.

This movie was released in the UK in 1987 straight to video, because of the Challenger disaster a year before, and one could say it could even provide younger space buffs an insight into thermal curtain failure. But overall, this is a wonderful family film that all ages can watch, in spite of some swear words. The story - the usual 1980s stereotypical teenagers line up for a team building summer camp at SpaceCamp, unaware that a young kid's obsession with STAR WARS and his friendship with a NASA robot named JINX(for reasons that will become apparent when you watch the movie) will blast the hapless teenagers into orbit when they experience a shuttle engine start up which escalates into an emergency launch. Will they get back in one piece?! You can surely guess the ending, but getting there's the fun part. Lea Thompson... appears, along with a good cast including ALIEN's Tom Skerritt, Kate Capshaw and Kelly Preston. The special effects are good for the time the movie was made, the NASA technicalities and procedures, apart from JINX and the 'engine start'(no way would NASA let such a thing happen, but hey, this is just a movie) scene are as accurate as possible and the characters are your usual 80s - the vain terminal preppie, the girl who wants to be her mentor, the spoilt rich kid sent to Space Camp by his father and a young Marine Corps recruit(!!)!! One not to miss, whatever age you are!

Despite what some say, this one might be a bit slow for kids (and anyone who has an extremly short attention span,) since it's not until about halfway into the film that the charecters actually go into space. But anyone eles should check this one out! NASA traniee Andie has been denied permission to go to the moon, and has become the reluctant instructor for a group of teens at NASA's Space Camp. The first half of the film introduces us to the students: Kevin, who was sent by his father, and who really dosen't care about being there, Kathlyn, who has dreams of being an astronaut and who reminds Andie of herself in many ways, Trish, a valley girl who is both preppy and intelligent, Rudy, the jock, and Max, the young STAR WARS obsessie-and the film follows their experiences at camp. Then one day they are sceduled to sit in a shuttle while the engines are tested, to get a bit of a feel for what take-off is like, when they are accidentally sent into space by a NASA robot. (You find out exactly how and why this happens when you see the film.) Now it's up to all of them, working as a group, to make it back alive, and despite what Kevin Simanton, says, Trish and Rudy DO help out in getting back home safely. Even if you're not into space travel, this is a good film to see if you like movies where everyone works together and helps out. It's also nice to see Kate Capshaw in a strong role for a change.

I remember flipping through the channels at home and came across a preview for this on HBO. I sat down and watched it. I was hooked! When I saw at the end that it was filmed at the US Space Camp, I ran to the Post Office to look up Huntsville, AL's ZIP code and I sent a letter off. I got info. I worked hard the summer of '88. I was only 12 but everything I earned went towards my trip to Space Camp in Florida (which had just opened that year).
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.
