When the NASA computers tell Jinx that there is no "Max" in the space program, the display lists real-life astronauts and their status at the time of filming. Mark N. Brown's status is misspelled as "canidate". Seconds later, Virgil "Gus" Grissom's first name is misspelled "Vergil". See more »
Ok, I first saw this little gem when I was around 9 years old. Back then I thought this film was cool. The other day, they played this movie on the SciFi Channel. I sat there thinking to myself, "This is a lot more stupid than I remember." And It is. I read a review on here that claimed that Kate Capshaw's character is annoying. Is that it? They're all annoying, especially Joaquin Phoenix's character, Max. They're all just a bunch of whiny individuals in the need of a serious beating. So maybe It's cause I'm older now, and more things annoy me, or this film is strictly for kids. On a lighter note, it was good to see Larry B. Scott (Lamar from Revenge of the Nerds).
