Storyline

Micky is a tough, loudmouth but lovable 12 year old who lives with his younger brother and sister at his grandmother's house. One day, a meteorite lands in his backyard and the kids believe that it was sent down to them by their dead parents (who they believe live up in the stars). The government ships away the rock and sends it to the local university. In the children's efforts to retrieve the meteor they believe is theirs, they meet a dorky scientist who finds a place in his heart for the kids. Meanwhile, Micky's parent's best friend, a drug addict (who had promised the parents to take care of the kids) owes drug dealers money and eventually has to hide out after barely escaping a hit.

Did You Know?

Trivia

According to an interview with Mike Myers on The Daily Show (1996), he worked with a dialect coach to learn a general Irish accent instead of the specific Dublin accent. When he did his first scene with Dubliner Ian Costello, Costello hated Myers' accent so much that he chased him off the set. Filming of Myers' scenes had to be delayed until he learned the accent from Dubliners. See more »

Quotes

Lily: [to kids objecting that the authorities took the meteor away] It's the law, right? The man explained everything to me. Anything that falls from the sky belongs to the law, alright.
Micky: I don't see them coming around here to claim all the rain and the pollution.

Terrible Waste Of Time
30 July 2003 | by WWalrusSee all my reviews

This is probably the worst film I have ever seen. Mike Myers tries to be a dramatic actor and fails miserably. The children, who have the major roles, are almost impossible to understand and are really unpleasant characters. It was not even worth the price of the rental.
