Stephen Dorff's agent didn't like the title "Space Truckers", so throughout shooting, the title was "Untitled Irish Space Movie". When filming wrapped, Stuart Gordon asked Stephen Dorff what the title of this movie should be. Dorff suggested "Space Trucker". So the film was re-titled "Space Truckers" again. 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 »
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.
