A 12-year-old boy goes missing in 1978, only to reappear once more in 1986. In the eight years that have passed, he hasn't aged. It is no coincidence that at the time he "comes back", a flying saucer is found, entangled in power lines. Written by
When David's parents pull up to their house in the beginning of the movie, the song playing on the car radio is "You're The One That I Want" from "Grease", also directed by Randal Kleiser. See more »
When David is interviewed at the hospital, a woman asks him what happened to him at the woods after his brother scares him. David replies "I chased him for a while, then I reached this cliff... I know I fell". Actually, he made only a few steps after his brother, then turned and walked toward the ravine, with no cliffs in sight. He seems confused and distracted during the interview, which is hardly surprising under the circumstances. See more »

For the fist time I saw Flight of The Navigator when I was a kid, nearly twenty years ago. I remember young soviet kids flocked into the theaters to see a strange American movie and somehow taped it but too many time has passed and all these years it was like a rather unclear distant memory for me, a distant memory of something pretty good and even beautiful. Since then I was unable to find it and watch it again and only recently I caught in on a cable TV channel. Despite being twenty seven years old now I still liked it a lot.
Flight of The Navigator is a very good Sci-fi family movie despite (or some people could say thanks to) it is not as overloaded by the special effects as most of such modern movies. That left enough place not only for pure entertainment bit also for emotions and some pretty nice scenes with rather good dialogs. It the story of an eleven years old boy, who after a strange and quite inexplicable contact with something looked like an alien ship got moved through the time into future several years ago, which passed for him like a couple of hours. In this future he takes an adventure to find an explanation what really happened with him. Flight of The Navigator is a very enjoyable movie for whole family, which deserves much more appreciation than overwhelming majority of recent family movies.
