Blast off for outrageously funny space travel in this screwball comedy that spins wildly out of control all the way to Mars! Though he's a wiz with computers, accident-prone astro-nut Fred Randall (Harland Williams) is the last guy on Earth you'd want on the first manned mission to Mars. But as bad luck and poor timing would have it, that's exactly what happens, and Fred undergoes rigorous, if not hilarious, training at NASA. After that it's t-minus a reality check as Fred blasts off with the rest of the space shuttle crew: a cocky, no-nonsense Commander, a sexy Mission Specialist, and a mischievous space chimp named Ulysses. From the dizzying preflight foolishness to the even loonier landing, ROCKETMAN is the out-of-this-world comedy that's more than go for launch ... it's go for laughs!

Common Sense Says
A so-so sophomoric space comedy.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Fred and a number of other characters do pratfalls that look fun, but could be dangerous if kids attempt them, like running into someone who's injured, breaking a window, etc. The movie also contains some perilous scenes where the main characters nearly die in a space accident, making this movie a better fit for kids 7 and up. There is also some toilet humor.
