Funny quater hour short.
15 January 2019 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

OK 15min Short of Nasa Astronauts in training in Iceland falling foul of the local farmer. Funny. HQ keeps on telling them "Don't call me Huston!"

Effective use of resources provides pro production values. The celebrity cast fit in too.
