When the Mars Shuttle is on the launchpad, it is obviously a model shuttle redesigned for the movie, with the name "Aries". When the shuttle launches it is clearly the real space shuttle, and in one scene during the launch you can see the name "Endeavour". See more »
A great Disney movie, ranks up there with "What About Bob"
This movie is incredibly funny. I base a good comedy on how many times it makes you laugh - this movie made me laugh so hard I cried at least 3 times. It throws tons of jokes at you - Harland Williams is great as the computer specialist who gets his dream job of becoming an astronaut -- "what I'll do now is use what we like to call 'The right way" to show you how it's done." There was only one moment where one joke goes on a few seconds too long ("whole world in his hands" bit) - but other than that it a very inventive comedy that will make adults laugh just as much as the kids, maybe more. A surprise gem - one of the funniest flicks I've seen - give it a shot. 9 out of 10.
