One for the none too discerning youngster.

Instead of creating an eye-opening panorama, Flight of the Navigator looks through the small end of the telescope. Life on Earth is magnified but without an expansive vision.

The special effects and gadgetry start to detract from a human story that is only vaguely hinted at.

Cramer gives a spirited performance as the title character. Director Randal Kleiser uses a deft touch with his material. The result is a Navigator that's out-of-this-world fun for adults as well as children.

Flight of the Navigator, in spite of a rough beginning, soars as it should, taking a child on the journey of his life.

The early CG FX have aged remarkably well, while the slow build-up makes the Spielbergian space adventure all the more fantastic.

This appealing children's adventure has just enough quirky touches to keep adults involved as well.

Weirdly entertaining kiddie space adventure.

The brain-assaulting sci-fi second half of Flight of the Navigator is made palpable by Cramer, who deftly conveys anguish during the first half. Now, he wants to go home and his gung-ho attitude makes every dumb effect exciting.

Appealing children's sci-fi fantasy film, that follows the squeaky-clean Disney formula.

At times a bit too precious, especially inside the young navigator's spacecraft, but the warm regard for character, as well as for our often-inhospitable planetary home, makes for a reasonably good time.

This is a film with its head in the clouds, its feet on the ground and -- just often enough -- its heart on its sleeve, in which space-age special effects take second place to family emotions.
