Mine: Better than average Disney fair. The kid in this one does a good job, and since he is the entire movie it's a good thing.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: 12-year-old boy is whisked away by an alien spaceship and returns home eight years later--still a 12-year-old boy. That's when the adventure really begins. Yet another film featuring a youthful hero and a cute robot; adequate entertainment for kids. The voice of the robot, billed as Paul Mall, is actually Paul Reubens, a. k. a. Pee-wee Herman.

I'm not sure why your giving Flight of the Navigator a measly 2 1/2 stars has incited me to write, but I shall. Flight of the Navigator is a wonderful yarn for kids, and indeed the whole family. I grew up on it, and whenever the theme music kicked in, an almighty grin arose across my face. They simply don't make concept movies like this anymore. Hell, they don't even make concept movies anymore. This movie had it all: great story, engaging characters, a charming script full of great dialogue with excellent delivery and performences by the actors and actresses. You never get the feeling that it's cheesy either, as it's all so darn heartwarming! Alan Silvestri's score is marvellous 80s goodness also, and the direction is very nice to boot. Anyway, that was a rather undetailed review, but there we go. I just felt the need to show my appreciation for a movie that took away many a sad and boring day.
