To get the PG rating in the UK, 42 seconds were cut to remove a scene. In this scene, Young Fred Z. Randall (Brandon Kaplan), enthralled by all things astronaut and space, climbs into his home washing machine and goes for a 'spin' inside it, all the while pretending that he's in a space capsule or astronaut trainer, preparing himself for the rigors of space such as motion sickness, so that he may one day be better prepared to apply for his dream job... to be a true NASA astronaut! (PS: Don't try this 'training' method at home.) See more »
In the scene in which the crew first goes into space and everything is weightless, Fred Randall turns his head to the right, thus knocking his ear-microphone loose, and it falls straight to the ground. See more »
I pride myself in having good taste in movies. Among my favorites are Raging Bull, On The Waterfront, The English Patient, etc. Normally I hate movies like this. Austin Powers 2 was so bad I wanted to leave. But this movie just makes me laugh.....hard. Sure it has your stereotypical Disney stuff that gets laughs from the little ones, but there are so many clever lines for adults that it really surprised me the first time I saw it. Harland Williams was perfectly cast, I don't think anyone else would have been good as Fred Z. Randall. If you are in for a stupid movie that will make you laugh see RocketMan.
