Director Stuart Gordon had the idea of truckers in space for years. After the international success of his last film, Fortress, the head of marketing was able to work up the grosses and ended up with a budget of 25 million dollars. Gordon also met with an Irish producer convincing him to film the movie in Wicklow, due to tax breaks. See more »
An object in motion will stay in motion until acted upon by another force or object. Pay close attention to the mustard bottle. It is delightfully spinning in a gravity free environment, after the vehicle is stopped, the free floating bottle is in the same space, it should have shot forward until it hit the windscreen. If you pay close attention they place other obvious errors for the viewer to discover. My query, are they intentional or accidental? Regardless they add to the silliness of the film.Makes for fun watching. See more »

The only thing that makes this movie funny is the fact that they actually got Dennis Hopper and Stephen Dorff to be in it. They must have lost a bet with somebody, and a pretty big one.
The script is so/so. The dialogue is so/so. The special effects are cheesy, but unintentionally, so. In Gordon's "Fortress" or "Robot Jox," the special effects were pulled off quite well and looked really great. But why on earth would he opt to go for realism, in a movie titled, "Space Truckers?!"
The production design was intentionally cheesy, and that's the part of the movie I loved. "Square Pigs." "Zero Gravity Beer." That, friends, is comedy.
Not quite self-aware enough. But good for an afternoon rent when you think all straight-to-video is garbage. 6 of 10.
