Trivia

The science class's pet tarantula is named "Leo G.", a reference to Leo G. Carroll, star of Tarantula (1955). (Also, the school is called Waverly, which was Carroll's character's name in "The Man From U.N.C.L.E".) See more »

Goofs

Usual Family Movie...
5 February 2000 | by (Castro Valley, U.S.A) – See all my reviews

I watched this with my younger brother and he loved it.

We-ll, I've seen these kind of movies since 7, and I know everything what goes on family movies. Let's see, there's a kid(sort of a nerd type) who is bullied by a *bad* kid, and he meets a new friend(eg.E.T or alien). They go round'n'round the journey and at the ending, the new friend has to go home. So, the kid cries, says goodbye, hugs the friend...

I've seen this kind of movies SO many times. "Star Kid" is no exception, but the computer graphics and the special effects were great. I give this movie: 6 out of 10.
