In the beginning scene where the "Hands Across America" commercial is playing, a VHS copies of C.H.U.D. and the Goonies can be seen on the shelf to the left of the TV and a copy of the Right Stuff can be seen underground. C.H.U.D is about underground creatures and the Goonies takes place primarily in underground tunnels. The Right Stuff takes place primarily above ground and in orbit. See more »
The VHS tape of C.H.U.D. seen in the opening is the Starmaker release from 1993, and the opening is set in 1986. See more »
It's got some originality but it lacks the hook you want. The trailer is worth watching more than the movie in my opinion. I give it a 7 for the acting and comedy throughout. The main character is wonderful and her husband is the comedic relief in tense situations, even the kids played their roles well. The movie however, was all over the place. I don't think anyone in the theater really understood the premise until it was over and even then you're left shrugging. It's like the reverse of an early M. Night Shyamalan twist.
