Our family really enjoyed this movie, including our teenage daughter. Is looking pretty dated, but still good,light,family watch!
The adventure begins in your own back yard
The visionary dreams of three curious and adventuresome young boys become an exciting reality in Explorers., the action-fantasy from acclaimed director Joe Dante (Gremlins), who combines keen humour, warmth and fantasy with unexpected twists.
In their makeshift laboratory, the boys use an amazing discovery and their ingenuity to build their own spaceship and launch themselves on a fantastic interplanetary journey. A galaxy of adventure for the whole family, starring a young River Phoenix (Stand By Me, Sneakers) and Ethan Hawk (Training Day, Reality Bites).
