Space Camp actually "franchises" itself, with internationally licensed Space Camps presently (as of 2012) including: Space Camp Turkey, Space Camp Canada (known as "Camp Spatial" in French), Space Camp Spain, European Space Camp (located at Andøya Rocket Range) in Norway, and Space Camp Belgium. The U.S. Space & Rocket Center Foundation is in the process of licensing additional camps in Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, India, and Malaysia. See more »
The bus used to transport the team to the pool (the "Gambler" sing-along scene) was a newer 2000's/early 2010's Blue Bird complete with modern features, which ran contrary to the 1980's era Blue Birds that would have existed when the movie made. See more »
I've spent a couple of days trying to figure out how I feel about this movie. I think you'll know from the synopsis if this is your *type* of movie. I found it an interesting story even if the characters were all rather generic types and a little flat. The acting was fine and didn't distract from the story. I found the kids believable and the teachers sympathetic.
I wanted the movie to deal in more depth with how the kids were treated at school. As it was written, their treatment was pretty cliché (although it doesn't mean it wasn't accurate). I also wanted more details on special accommodations the kids may have gotten while at camp. And I couldn't help wondering if there wasn't a legal avenue to get special needs children into Space Camp.
Overall, I did like the movie. I appreciate that it didn't push too hard for an emotional response.
