In a family of heroes, Alan Tracy was always being left out. While his father, billionaire and former astronaut Jeff Tracy and his four elder brothers are busy saving the world, Alan's biggest challenge is saving his grade point average at boarding school. And what's worse, he can't even tell his schoolmates that his dad and brothers are better known as the fearless adventurers behind the top-secret organization International Rescue--called in to save those in need whenever disaster strikes.

It's not too often I find myself looking forward to a Tim Allen comedy, but this one's about...
No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
There's enough special effects razzle-dazzle to distract the average ten-year-old, but the script by William Osborne and Michael McCullers is stilted and humorless -- a little camp might have helped.
A new and rather breathtakingly misconceived attempt to revisit a vintage TV show that did not under any circumstances need to be revisited.
This is like a C-movie version of Spy Kids. And I didn't even like Spy Kids.
Fun at times and tedious at others, it's an action-adventure fantasy aimed particularly at gadget-loving boys.
Not intended for people old enough to pine for the puppets. It's for people who don't remember the first cast of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers.
The plot abounds with holes, and the dialogue is often delivered in a bland, perfunctory manner.
Ultra-campy marionettes come to blah life in director Jonathan Frakes' souped-up but poorly written adaptation of the cult English sci-fi kids' show.
Here the problem is compounded by the fact that few members of the target audience (kids) are even aware of the original series.
The script exploits what's probably the ultimate male child fantasy: proving to Daddy that son is worthy of hero-size respect.
A glossy, live action adventure yarn based on the 1960's British puppet TV series.
The filmmakers, clearly never having seen the original TV series, sideline the spacecraft and reduce this debacle to what essentially amounts to boys 'n' The Hood.
What's here is promising, but if the Thunderbirds decide to 'go' again, the filmmakers should involve the whole family, the way this story was intended to be.
The premise of the TV series has been abandoned just as effectively as the Tracy boys have been marooned in space for nearly the entire story
There's no variation in tone during the gee-whiz cornball spectacle, causing the movie to meld together into an interminable and substandard action sequence.
Director Jonathan Frakes throws lots of bright colors and weird gadgets at the audience, but none of this hides the lack of imagination at the movie's center.
