See this if you liked the TV-series "Kenny Starfighter"
10 March 2009 | by johan-490See all my reviews

The movie describes the life and adventures of Kenny Starfighter before the TV-series. It's kind of like Star Wars 1-3... ;-)

Our kids (aged 9 and 11) love the TV-series, and they were really exited about seeing the movie. They weren't disappointed... the first comment when we got out was "We must get this movie on DVD!"

It's a really good family movie. The action is great, the jokes are somewhat pubertal, and there's quite a few references to other great movies, like Star Wars.

Even mom, who probably isn't a part of the main target group, thought that it was a rather funny movie.
