Trivia

Former "National Lampoons" editor Ted Mann, who scripted this science-fiction comedy, calls it "The first outer space road movie." According to Mann, the film has "no scientists, no techies, none of the unusual polished, sanitary environments we're used to in our space films. Space is like anywhere else - the people who are there are underpaid and poorly regarded." See more »

Goofs

An object in motion will stay in motion until acted upon by another force or object. Pay close attention to the mustard bottle. It is delightfully spinning in a gravity free environment, after the vehicle is stopped, the free floating bottle is in the same space, it should have shot forward until it hit the windscreen. If you pay close attention they place other obvious errors for the viewer to discover. My query, are they intentional or accidental? Regardless they add to the silliness of the film.Makes for fun watching. See more »

Quotes

So bad it's Good
24 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

I knew this movie was going to be bad going into it. What surprised me though was how much I laughed. I'm not sure if they meant for this movie to be funny but it was a riot. Space Truckers is a great party movie for the absolute ridiculousness of the whole thing. One last thing; SQUARE PIGS!!!
