A strange, wounded beast, filled with wonderful sequences and homemade charm, but also confused and anticlimactic.

Explorers itself is bubble-thin, but it glides by gracefully on the charm of its three young heroes and their vividly envisioned adventure in space.

The offbeat teen comedy gets off to a good start, but when it takes off in space the spoof becomes too alien to be anything more nourishing than junk food for the soul.

Explorers,' which is lively but largely familiar until the point when it reaches its batty pinnacle, frequently shows off Mr. Dante's sense of humor to good advantage.

After so much build-up, the ending's a bit of a letdown, but as a kids flick, this is way above average.
