Perfect Family Fare!
4 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

Incredible action. Heartwarming story. All set against the backdrop of the most exciting race in history--the race to the moon.

My kids stood up and cheered at the end of this terrific movie.

James Woods, Anabeth Gish, William Devane, William Atherton--what a great cast! And that little muppet Alex Linz--he totally put it over.

I could see this movie over and over (kid at heart.)
