Ill be honest, bar a few faults i liked this film. I was about 12 i think when i saw it and liked it so much, i tried looking for the place in Alabama. Now, i see it as a kids adventure. Casting kids, aiming space adventure to kids. (if you look closely you can see its a studio soundstage - yes i thought i was really in space).
The plot is OK, space camp go into the shuttle for an engine test that turns into a launch. It said the odds for it happening are once ever 4 million years. So how did it happen? The robot programmed it to. did it really fail or was it a hoax still puzzling that one.
Its a race against time, well air supply. I don't know a lot about any nations space programme, but you'd have thought they would have the supplies on board before doing tests?
Only other point about it, i felt that Kate Capshaws character was too humourless. OK she was so unhappy, she made scrooge look happy go lucky.
