This movie has it all. Adventure, suspense, humor, romance, a fun, clever plot, and awesome visuals. Bruce Willis can sure pick 'em. Be prepared to make this a permanent addition to your collection. It's on my list of top ten or twenty movies of all time.
And my daughter loves it too. We could both watch it again and again.

This ranks right up there in about a 50-way tie for 1st place on my "favorite movies of all time" list. (I have trouble ranking movies, in case you can't tell.)
I was completely blown away by this movie the first time I saw it, and I am continually blown away by it each time I watch it again. I mean, visuals, action, adventure, comedy, sci-fi, it's all in there. Generally a movie that's ahead of ANY time. Just my opinion. Probably one of the best movies Bruce Willis has ever been attached to, outside of the Die Hard franchise and Armageddon (maybe not high cinema, but a general box office winner).
I don't know what else to say. Truly a sci-fi masterpiece, in my opinion. Straddling the line between the formulaic and "thinking outside the box" just perfectly. I highly recommend this movie to anyone and everyone.
