Trivia

The film deliberately uses well-known appliances and household items as sci-fi props for comical effect. For instance, Kenny's gun is a repainted hairdryer, the bad guys' belt buckles are electrical installation boxes, and some spacecraft are garbage skips, complete with chute lids. See more »

Goofs

While existing in real life, the village of Forserum, where Pontus lives, looks nothing likes the cityscape in the film. For instance, exterior shots at his school were shot in Uppsala - Sweden's fourth largest city. See more »

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.
