Ben Stiller and Reese Witherspoon were both attached to star, but left due to scheduling conflicts. Crowe then spent four years re-writing the script, making the characters younger. See more »
USAF personnel are shown outdoors in uniform but not wearing hats. Regulations require all service personnel to wear headgear ("covers") outdoors, which must be removed when indoors. However, when USAF personnel are located on the flightline (aircraft operations area), the wear of headgear is strictly prohibited as they could easily be ingested into aircraft intakes causing major damage to engines and other mechanics. In addition, base commanders have the authority to declare a "no hat/no salute" parameter for celebrations/receptions on the flightline even if nearby aircraft are stationary and powered down.

There was a time I knew everything in the sky. Every satellite, every constellation, souvenirs of space walks and astronauts and rockets launched by NASA in the '60s. As a kid, I looked up and felt the future. It belonged to me.

Loveable actors playing mostly unbelievable characters in an unbelievable plot that hinges on a boy's video recording. Mixed soundtrack as confusing as rest of the movie. The elements were all there for a great film but writer/director Crow didn't know in which direction to take it.
