Storyline

American kids go to a space camp during the summer holidays. They learn how to operate the Space Shuttle. A team consisting of a guy who just entered to meet girls, a wanna be astronaut and an instructor who wanted to go on a mission instead of teaching can sit in the Shuttle while testing the engines. Then they're launched by mistake ... Written by Ivo Kroone <ab2693@triton.heao.hsa.nl>

Goofs

The only message in Morse code that Atlantis sends prior to contact with Mission Control is "SOS". But when Jinx notices that Atlantis is sending Morse code, he starts speaking the letters out loud, which spell, "Come in Control". Then Mission Control starts translating the code which has now changed to "Request Alternate Landing". Not only is the message no longer "SOS", but there is no way that much information could be conveyed that quickly with Morse code sent at the speed Atlantis is seen using. See more »

Quotes

Kevin: Ladies and gentlemen, please return your seats and tray-tables to their full upright positions, and extinguish all smoking material, as we're about to land in the red zone. Ahh! No survivors!

A good romp
14 November 1999 | by agulledgSee all my reviews

I just rented it again. I just ignore the plot porcupines and enjoy the adolescent romp. Perfect family viewing; some action and suspense, no violence, and just one kiss. For those of us that will be forever planet bound, it is sometimes nice to dream.
