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?
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

According to Lea Thompson, because the numerous delays in filming, the cast and crew jokingly wore T-shirts saying "SpaceCramp". See more »
During the re-entry sequence when the space shuttle enters a flat spin the exterior shots of the shuttle correctly show a combination of out-of-control roll and yaw. The internal cockpit shots show the earth rotating in the background through the side-windows which could only occur if the shuttle were pitching end over end. See more »

I ain't getting in that.
No, Max, come on. I mean, it's not like you're using it for much else anyway, right?

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).
