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.
