After the movie's cinematic debut, Joseph Mazzello was asked in a magazine interview how he liked the role, with the interviewer assuming playing a kid in an exo-suit must have been exciting. Joseph replied it wasn't very much fun, since a stuntman did all of the exterior shots of the Cyborsuit and all he got to do for the reaction shots was sit on a stool in front of a screen. See more »
When Spencer tells a joke to the robot, he says, "What do you call a cow with no feet? Ground beef." Which makes no sense. But later when the robot repeats part of the joke back to Spencer on entering his room for the first time, the robot says, "A cow with no legs." Which makes sense. So Spencer clearly mis-told the joke at first and it was just never corrected. See more »
Star Kid is a typical 'loser kid' who gets back at everyone and in the end is respected and loved giving all the nerds and losers hope that one day this could happen to them and make their lives so much easier. Wouldn't that be nice? Such is the case in this film starring no one you or me will ever hear of until a major blockbuster film comes out in which they play a minor role and eventually make their way to the top. This story has a bit of a twist to the usual tale, the 'bully' teams up with the 'loser' and they together save mankind. The humor is kiddie and not very often funny. But, the plot is well constructed and fine by my standards.
