An endearing and entertaining aspirational movie straight from the heart of the American dream: you can do or be anything you set your heart on. President or astronaut, it's your right.

What could easily have come off as preposterous or, worse yet, downright corny is made rather poignant and genuinely uplifting and inspiring.

Must surely be the year's most far-fetched movie!

A barely believable flight of fancy that's fun the whole family, provided you're willing to buy its cartoon astrophysics and cops who can't figure out a way to prevent a loose cannon from catapulting himself skyward at a rate in excess of escape velocity.

How much you're going to like this gentle, whimsical family film may depend upon how much you can suspend your disbelief and accept it as a metaphorical fantasy.
