Starring: Harland Williams, Jessica Lundy, William Sadler, Jeffrey DeMunn, Beau Bridges
A goofy, geeky, immature and over-enthusiastic computer programmer Fred Randall (Williams) lands himself the opportunity to be on the crew of the first manned flight to Mars. Although he is highly eccentric and comes across as a complete lunatic, he manages to break all astronaut test records and NASA has no option but to finalise him. Along with astronaut Julie Ford (Lundy), flight commander Will Overbeck (Sadler) and a chimpanzee, they launch for Mars. His senselessness doesn't end even when he is aboard and he somehow doesn't fall asleep during the 8 month hyper-sleep mode. With nothing to do, Fred tries to 'utilise' his time by doing insensible tasks which also end up consuming the space ships valuable resources. The only sensible act that he does is to observe the weather patterns on Mars and realises that a dust storm is brewing which could be fateful to their mission. The movie is corny but yet laugh-out-loud hilarious. Although Harland Williams' acting is pretty lame, he does a good job in making you laugh. The plot is simple and very basic and its the jokes that you have to watch out for. Best watched with family and your kid sibling for a better experience.
Thumbs up: Great laughs
Thumbs down: It's fine just the way it is
