Er, you know I once knew this guy who could hold his breath under water for hours. Nobody could ever figure out exactly how he did it. Or maybe it wasn't hours, but it sure was a long time.
That was when I, I was on the swim team. It was freshman year. He used to do it too. Hold his breath for hours. Just by thinking about eating French fries. Guess he really got off on eating French fries and uh...

In the 80's, this is how we "Danced with the Stars".
"This one time at space camp...." Ahahaha...ahem...oh well. Down to business. Participants in NASA's real life Space Camp can undergo a limited version of real astronaut training. Well for a few of them the training gets a little too real. Lea Thompson, Kelly Preston, and some teen age punks are accidentally blasted into space, along with astronaut Kate Capshaw. You'd think being stuck in space with those three ladies would be a fantastic weekend, even with Joaquin Phoenix along as a whiny brat. Well it is, until the oxygen starts to run out. Whu-Oh! Luckily Tom Skerrit is on the ground to help out.
This is a fun little movie meant simply as family entertainment. Of course it has technical inaccuracies, it's a movie about kids being launched into space. I just don't understand people who rag on it because some aspects aren't technically correct. This isn't a NASA training film, it's just an exciting little film that a family can watch together. It also stars Larry B. Scott, who also played Lamar in Revenge of the Nerds, and Terry O'Quinn, who played Locke in Lost.
