Suckiness. It is the only word that can describe this pile of dung. Spacecamp is the timeless story of spoiled rich kids who go to Spacecamp and spend most of the time arguing and acting like the spoiled rich kids they are. However, thanks to a robot, instead of a simulation, they get the real deal and are actually launched into space where they now must get along to survive. Now, I don't know who came up with this idea (Michael Bay on crack, or the kids at Space Camp who happened to be about five years old), but it's a terrible one. The acting is bad, the story is stupid, and everything about is so unrealistic and incomprehendible that the story has you saying "what the hell" rather than clapping at the end.
Now if you're a movie fan, avoid this movie at all costs. It is one of Hollywood's biggest embarrassments of all time, and deserves to be in the vault of crap next to movies such as the Italian Job Remake and Daredevil. Not even five year olds should watch this movie. Not only will it skewer their sense of reality, but it was also prevent our future kids from being astronauts. Please, for the love of god, don't sell Space Camp. It'll scar you worse than german pornography.
Do you know something we don't?
