Movie Reviews

Best Movie on an Airplane
blackturtle | eastern CA desert | 04/23/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This movie was a lot of fun. The characters were likeable and the story was told with plenty of humor. Of all the movies I've ever seen that take place on an airplane (including all of the Airplane series and Soul Plane), this one is my favorite. The main character is a boy who day-dreams a lot and who must overcome this tendency to save the day. To add to the value of this DVD is a behind the scenes piece which is about an hour long. Also the commentary (featuring the lead actor and the writer/director) was enjoyable. Since the lead actor is a child, the commentary would be most appropriate for children. The director explains many aspects of movie-making in a many fully comprehensible by children over eight years of age."
Not bad, not bad

"I was a little leery about picking this one up, but it somehow intrigued me. It did sort of surprise me in that it wasn't as bad as I was expecting.
The formula is familiar : Kid loves the flight simulator game, has a dad who designs planes, winds up on a plane headed for disaster, kid saves day. Soundlike the usual hokeyness of a movie only the youngest of kids could possibly tolerate? You would be right if you said yes if it weren't for one thing this film has lots of: charm. I normally wouldn't enjoy this kind of movie simply because of it's fantasy land unbelievability but something keeps me aboard the whole time I watch Junior Pilot. The kids are no Haley Joel Osments in the acting department, but then the material is light and fun enough where they really dont have to be. The daydream sequences try to be slick and inventive like those in Sidekicks, but they are shorter and less of an impact on the main story of the film.
I think everyone who made this film went into it knowing that it was just supposed to be fun, and they showed it in their work very well. Kudos to everyone in the movie for understanding that sometimes fun can be a great thing. 3.75 stars"
Highly recommendable !

"Junior Pilot is a likeable movie wich the whole family would enjoy, especially the kids. It is amusing, entertaining, and has the charm of the simplicity.
Very nice and funny performance of Mark Dacascos in this, his first children film."
