Storyline

As the result of a NASA miscalculation, Astronaut Jack Austin flies too close to the sun, the rays expanding his mind and making him the smartest man on the planet. Now he and his talking motorcycle Heat Vision (which contains the mind of his former roommate) are on the run from NASA and their assassin, actor Ron Silver who want to take his brain. They travel from place to place solving paranormal mysteries with the help of Jack's newfound ability to become a super genius when his brain absorbs sunlight. Written by Captain_Freed

Trivia

The short is actually a parody of Northstar, a 1986 failed pilot turned TV movie about an astronaut called Northstar who gets irradiated by the Sun during a NASA mission, which somehow significantly enhances all of his senses but also makes him allergic to bright Sun. Heat Vision and Jack also spoofs more popular shows like Night Rider, a show about a talking car and his driver who stop crime, and less directly Dr. Who, a long running British show about an omnipotent benevolent alien who calls himself doctor Who and helps humanity against various alien and other threats. The most popular villain on Dr. Who is a race of xenophobic alien artificial life forms or robots called Daleks who have only one goal in mind - to eradicate all humanity. This is also the plan of the villainous artificial life form in Heat Vision and Jack. As an in-joke, Heat Vision watches one of Dr. Who episodes on the TV in the sheriff's grandma's house. The episode features the Daleks as well as their creator Davros being defeated by the Doctor. See more »

This had to be a spoof... it's reads "Episode 14" at the beginning...
1 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I would probably watch this show if it were real... because it's pretty funny.

Not as funny as Tropic Thunder, mind you... but what is? This almost seems like a joke pilot made for fun. It's "episode 14" too, so that should tell you something.

The cast is interesting... a lot of the same players who do appear together in a lot of stuff... (Night at the Museum -- Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson... Tropic Thunder -- Ben Stiller and Jack Black)... it's quite possible these are all friends who just wanted to make a funny movie pilot.

If I had as much money as they do, I'd still have to find some time to do some stuff not for profit... but for fun -- that's how you keep your goals in check and not purely based on how much money your next gig pays... keeps you straight, in line with your actual creative goals.
