Storyline

As the result of a NASA miscalculation, Astronaut Jack Austin flies too close to the sun, the rays expanding his mind and making him the smartest man on the planet. Now he and his talking motorcycle Heat Vision (which contains the mind of his former roommate) are on the run from NASA and their assassin, actor Ron Silver who want to take his brain. They travel from place to place solving paranormal mysteries with the help of Jack's newfound ability to become a super genius when his brain absorbs sunlight. Written by Captain_Freed

Trivia

The short is actually a parody of Northstar, a 1986 failed pilot turned TV movie about an astronaut called Northstar who gets irradiated by the Sun during a NASA mission, which somehow significantly enhances all of his senses but also makes him allergic to bright Sun. Heat Vision and Jack also spoofs more popular shows like Night Rider, a show about a talking car and his driver who stop crime, and less directly Dr. Who, a long running British show about an omnipotent benevolent alien who calls himself doctor Who and helps humanity against various alien and other threats. The most popular villain on Dr. Who is a race of xenophobic alien artificial life forms or robots called Daleks who have only one goal in mind - to eradicate all humanity. This is also the plan of the villainous artificial life form in Heat Vision and Jack. As an in-joke, Heat Vision watches one of Dr. Who episodes on the TV in the sheriff's grandma's house. The episode features the Daleks as well as their creator Davros being defeated by the Doctor. See more »

Quotes

The Sheriff: Jack, if you stay here, I can take care of you.
Jack Austin: In the past, I've try to tell my story to journalists. Make friends. Open up to women. They're all dead. I've burnt out my daylight. Time for my to ride.

Great show, up there with the best of tenacious d and ben stiller
6 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

What can be said about Heat Vision and Jack? It's great, it's not good, in any way! But very funny. You have Jack Ausin (Jack Black), a NASA astronaut, who become supersmart in sunlight, because he came to near the sun during a NASA mission. He's buddy (Owen Wilson) has been transformed into a motorcycle. And they are being chased by a NASA hitman, Ron Silver (playing himself). And it's all being directed by Ben stiller.

Great if you like Tenacious D and Ben Stiller's wacky humour.
