As written Grandma is erroneously stopped from leaving on a flight to Paris to watch Tommy's non-existent French astronaut girlfriend being launched into space. The European Space Agency's Ariane rocket is not launched from Europe, it is launched from South America. The Guiana Space Center near Kourou, Guiana (Guiana is France's largest overseas territory) allows the Ariane booster to lift larger payloads by launching into a near equatorial orbit. See more »

One of the best recent comedies
29 August 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I've had actually quite negative initial approach to this movie, regardless Sigourney Weaver's involvement who is my favourite actress. That was mainly caused by many extremely negative reviews. It's shame on me as usually I try to judge myself and never based on the reviews of critics who are very often doing weird statements. Crazy on the outside is an another example of underrated movie, totally crushed by critics. I have really enjoyed that movie. It's a debut of Tim Allen (Galaxy Quest, Toy Story) as a director. He is also a main role, a guy called Tommy, who has just left prison and wants to start new life, far from criminal past. The story shows that it won't be very easy for him. He is fully supported by his crazy sister, played by Sigourney Weaver (who teams up with Allen again, after brilliant performance in Galaxy Quest, 1999). And actually Sigourney, who isn't main character in the movie, is one of the best, if not the best element of Crazy on the outside. Of course story isn't brand new, dramatic conflicts are obvious, but this movie is great fun and provide solid, not stupid dose of humour. DVD release contains good sound and picture with English subtitles. It's really worth of your time.
