Nauseating characters and a cliché ridden narrative do little for this movie. Add to that a plot which requires you not just to suspend disbelief, but sledgehammer it to death (NASA is willing to have kids sit in a space shuttle whilst testing its engines, a robot who's sufficiently intelligent to become friends with a human, and manipulate NASA's computers, but who does not realise that by sending a small child into space he is placing his life in grave jeopardy). The film has occasional moments of humour (Tate Donovan as Kate Capshaw walks past: "Great boosters!" - this would probably be censored out as 'sexual harrassment' or 'inappropriate' speech nowadays, such is the prudishness of our times). But otherwise there is very little to recommend this hopeless nonsense.

A cute kids movie, Loosely based on fact, in that. there really was a N.A.S.A. Space Camp! Parts of the movie were filmed on location, but there never was (at least as far as I know) any incident with the Space Shuttle! Leaf Pheniox a.k.a. Joaquinn, did well, and was very cute!
