Trivia

When Carter is on the phone with a promoter about being "the first civilian astronaut in space" he is re-enacting the phone call for the film production who were not there for the original call. This is evident as his finger is on the hook/cradle as the dial tone kept distracting him. See more »

Totally unreal experience.
23 February 2002 | by (Auckland, NZ) – See all my reviews

Maybe it is all a big hoax. If it is this is some of the best mockumentary making ever and If it isn't then Ken Carter's miserable struggle to get his rocket car to jump a mile is one of the most amazing tales I have ever seen.

Ken Himself, like pretty much his whole support crew is a misguided man, but his heart is in the right place and it seems God definitely ain't on his side.

This is a hard film to find but totally worthy of its cult reputation. As a comedy of errors it is unbeatable.
