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.
