Trivia

The character Roger Thornhill (played by William Devane) is clearly a reference to Cary Grant's character, Roger O. Thornhill in Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest (1959). See more »

Goofs

Although set in Cocoa Beach, Florida, Billy's jet ride with Alan Shepard lands at what is clearly Edwards Air Force base in California. There are no mountains in Florida, yet the air strip background clearly shows a Mojave mountain range. See more »

They Can Still Make Great Family Movies!
17 July 2002 | by dvdgilSee all my reviews

I have just seen Race To Space and was so pleased to see a movie that can be enjoyed by the whole family.The cast was great especially William Atherton who is great at playing characters you love to hate. The story moves quickly and has plenty of humor and suspense and is also a great history lesson. I highly recommend this movie for anyone 8 or over
