Watch it for Dany Saval
5 February 2000 | by (The Beach) – See all my reviews

Wry satire skewing the government, the military, and the space program at a time when there wasn't that many films taking aim at those agencies. This was the Kennedy era after all, and Disney didn't make that many satires. Tom Tyron ("Texas John Slaughter")is good as the astronaut but French actress Dany Saval ("Boeing, Boeing") makes the film worth watching. The support actors fail to bring the script alive (good actors but dry direction lets them sway in the wind). Tommy Kirk appears in a very small, but adult role.
