Goofs

At the end of the movie H7-25 states he has returned for 50,000 light years. A light year is a measure of distance, not time. See more »

Alternate Versions

The German DVD re-release from 3L features a shorter (ca. 50 seconds) version than the original release from e-m-s. The reason for this is that the cut re-release was based on an Italian master whereas the original uncut release was based on a German master (this also explains the language differences in the credits).

User Reviews

I was an "extra" (so to speak) in the movie
9 August 1999 | by fred-224See all my reviews

My hometown of Monroe, Georgia (USA) was the site of at least some of the filming of "The Sheriff and the Satellite Kid". I have never actually seen the film, but I participated in a scene where there was a parade down the main street of my town. I was basically a bystander on the sidewalk who was waving as the parade went by. I have always wanted to see the movie to not only see what the movie was all about, but to also see myself in my one and only film debut. I would appreciate any leads in how I may go about getting a copy of the film.
