Tony Nelson is a very unusual astronaut in that he goes into space in a Mercury capsule, a Gemini capsule, an Apollo capsule and in the TV movie follow up in the space shuttle. No real astronaut has ever flown on all four spacecraft. See more »
Without Larry Hagman, it was terrible for me. They should have paid Larry Hagman enough to still be Tony.
Even worse, when Jeannie went back in history to show how they met on the beach, it was nothing like how they really met, and changing Tony even going back to the beach was a brutal mistake.
As a big fan of the original series, this flopped for me during the whole movie. The chemistry between Tony and Jeannie disappeared.
Just like in the original series, Jeannie's sister tried to break them apart. Evidently it worked in this movie (Very fitting as the 'new' Tony Nelson was horrible with the relationship with Jeannie anyway).
The ending was also bad. It was not like Jeannie to leave, but I understand now since the new Tony was nothing like the original.
Perhaps younger people who never watched the series didn't notice how far it went from the original and rated higher, and am sad about that.
All around it was so disappointing.
