A boy obsessed with 50s sci-fi movies about aliens has a recurring dream about a blueprint of some kind, which he draws for his inventor friend. With the help of a third kid, they follow it and build themselves a spaceship. Now what?
American kids go to a space camp during the summer holidays. They learn how to operate the Space Shuttle.

The interior of the Space Shuttle Atlantis was filmed in the Atlantis simulator at the real Space Camp. See more »
This is either an anachronism or just a very insensitive lack of editing. When Jinx is reviewing the list of astronauts, the name Ronald McNair is clearly visible and listed as an active astronaut. McNair was one of the astronauts killed in the Challenger accident a few months before the movie was released. See more »

It's Fun. It's as simple as that. The premise is not actually to far fetched. Who hasn't thought about going into space? And in this the kids get to do it. There are a few "you did it because you're a team" slushy American moments but otherwise it's a great harmless rainy day movie. 8/10
