Former "National Lampoons" editor Ted Mann, who scripted this science-fiction comedy, calls it "The first outer space road movie." According to Mann, the film has "no scientists, no techies, none of the unusual polished, sanitary environments we're used to in our space films. Space is like anywhere else - the people who are there are underpaid and poorly regarded." See more »
There's numerous events where laws of gravity and other physics are neglected, but the most notable is probably the upright flame of a lighter in a place where there's no air and no gravity. See more »
Space Truckers is a perfect B-Movie. It has a title which makes anyone cringe, and a lightweight plot with no originality, except perhaps the concept of a square pig. That said, as long as you watch it with no expectations you will be pleasantly surprised. The quality of acting is generally good, with a competent cast (particularly Charles Dance) managing to avoid laughing their way through the script. The ending however is almost unwatchable, yet I can't escape from the feeling that this film is entertaining, which is all that any movie should aim to do.
