A boy obsessed with 50s sci-fi movies about aliens has a recurring dream about a blueprint of some kind, which he draws for his inventor friend. With the help of a third kid, they follow it and build themselves a spaceship. Now what?
The Henderson family adopt a friendly Sasquatch after accidentally running him over on a hunting trip, but have a hard time trying to keep him away from the authorities and an eccentric hunter who's determined to catch "Bigfoot".
A babysitter must leave her safe suburban surroundings and head for the heart of the big city to rescue a stranded friend, unaware of the perilous adventures that await her and the kids she's looking after who have tagged along.
American kids go to a space camp during the summer holidays. They learn how to operate the Space Shuttle. A team consisting of a guy who just entered to meet girls, a wanna be astronaut and an instructor who wanted to go on a mission instead of teaching can sit in the Shuttle while testing the engines. Then they're launched by mistake ... Written by

The interior of the Space Shuttle Atlantis was filmed in the Atlantis simulator at the real Space Camp. See more »
After the shuttle clears the launch tower at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, FL, all radio transmissions are immediately sent and received from the Mission Control room at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX. Kennedy has no more contact with the shuttle after the initial liftoff, so none of the members of Launch Control including Andy's Husband Zack would be able to talk to them. Also, the radio installed for the FRF test would be the same radio used on regular shuttle missions. It sort of comes standard with the electronics and is not interchangeable. See more »
So what brings you to space camp?
Well I did this audit at GPL on Radio Astronomy; it was unbelieveable! I mean can you imagine an extra terrestrial disc jockey? I mean like listening to radio waves from space? I mean like waiting for signs of intelligence?
...Like I know the feeling.

Watching this movie again really brought back some great childhood memories . I'm 34 now, have not seen it since I was 12-14. I had almost forgotten about this movie, but when I watched it again recently, some scenes literally brought a tear to my eye! That little robot "Jinx"(friends forever!). It was just like revisiting my childhood. It was an absolutely amazing experience for me. I will always cherish this movie for that reason. I can't believe that was Joaquim Phoenix as a kid. I'm addicted to 80's movies now. I can't get enough of them. Thanks a lot Space Camp. Friends forever. Jinx is still the best "80s movie robot" ever. I named my cat Jinx.
