Ulysses (the chimpanzee in the movie) was played by Raven, a three-year-old female chimpanzee. See more »
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 »
I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard during a movie. Harland Williams is a genius. "C'mon all you Chinese....." Who comes up with this stuff??? I got the feeling that the directors and writers just told Williams to work around the script and improvise whatever he wanted? Some of this stuff is so off the wall, you wonder just how much was scripted. And this is not your typical Jerry Lewis slapstick. Williams has a great deal of pure talent. Anyway watch it and just enjoy the wonderful absurdity that is Rocket Man.
