Although set in Cocoa Beach, Florida, Billy's jet ride with Alan Shepard lands at what is clearly Edwards Air Force base in California. There are no mountains in Florida, yet the air strip background clearly shows a Mojave mountain range. See more »

I enjoyed movie, even though I am 53 yrs. old!
29 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

I disagree with the other comment that this wasn't a good movie for kids. There is so much negativity that kids are exposed to today, that i think it's important for kids to know that they have options in this world, and good things can happen if you give things a chance. Kids get enough reality from tv, news, friends, parents. I think it's still important for kids to enjoy some fantasy. They are kids for only a very short part of their life. I'm not saying the movie couldn't be improved upon. But, I would rather watch something like this than some of the violent movies that use the "F" word in every other sentence.
