Storyline

Have you ever thought of traveling through time... going forward or backward to any date? That's the intriguing question aviator/inventor Max Knickerbocker (E.T's Peter Coyote) asks 11-year-old Jonothan Knicks (Huckleberry Fox of "Terms of Endearment"). Max is unaware that Jonothan is his grandson - already an adventurous time traveller thanks to a machine built by his neighbour, Henry Coogan (Academy Award-winner actor Art Carney). Can Jonathan save his grandfather from a fatal solo flight across the atlantic and alter the course of history? Written by Rick Brownlie <rick@cougar.multiline.com.au>

Something for everybody!!!
24 May 2000 | by (Jacksonville, FL) – See all my reviews

Put Huckleberry Fox, Peter Coyote, and Art Carney in a Fantasy Adventure film dealing with airplanes and time travel, add an intelligent script, excellent performances by the entire cast, give it a couple dashes of suspense, a few pinches of comedy, and capture it all with dazzling cinematography, and you have The Blue Yonder. This is the type of film that I actively seek out. BRAVO to all who worked on this fine family film.
