    If you were to cross Pee Wee Herman with Forrest Gump, you would probably get Harland Williams.

    You might not be familiar with his name, but you've seen him in such movies as "Dumb and Dumber" and "Down Periscope." Now he's starring in his own movie, "The Rocketman."

    Williams plays Fred Randall, a computer expert for N.A.S.A., whose dream of being an astronaut is realized when he is chosen as a last minute replacement o a crew going to Mars.

    While this is not a comedy masterpeice, the bulk of the film is hilarious. If you have seen the 1964 movie "The Reluctant Astronaut," which starred Don Knotts, you'll notice this is a remake.

    The acting is good; William Sadler and Beau Bridges stand out as Randall's fellow astronauts and idols.

    "The Rocketman" was well directed by Stuart Gillard, who also directed "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3."

    One warning for those young impressionable minds out there, the opening scene shows a young Fred Randall in a dryer. Please do not attempt to try that at home.

    I recommend "Rocketman." It's not the most complex movie out there, but it sure is funny.

    This is an entertaining kids' movie, but its also over a decade old.  Just wanted to clarify, as the original post seems to imply that this is a newer release.

    Rocketman is an oldie but a goodie.  This is one movie my two TEENAGERS still get out and watch ocassionally.  My 17 year old son in particular insists all his buds watch it at some time or other...if they want to be his friend. LOL.  I enjoyed your post.  I agree...it would make a good HUB.  I'm new also and still learning.
