In the scene where Randall leaves the Mars Lander to save Ulysses and Overbeck, Randall enters the airlock and goes off-screen. At that moment Julie turns around to look out the window of the Lander, but oddly enough, a grasshopper seems to be on the lower back of Julie's spacesuit. See more »

This movie was very funny. A lot of the humor was very spontaneous and original. I love how he gets everyone to sing "He's got the whole world in his hands" and how he passes the time in the isolation chamber by conducting his own puppet show. Leonard Maltin definitely missed the boat by giving this film a bomb rating; considering that he called this film and Judd Nelson's "From the Hip" a bomb while giving two stars to "Senior Trip", Maltin has given me sufficient reason to take his reviews with a grain of salt.
