Movie Info

Astronaut Earl Jensen is blasted into space on a routine mission, which is sabotaged by the evil Dr. Frubar, a space program bigwig who plans to twist Earl's "accident" into public relations grist for an outlandish and costly new spacecraft initiative benefiting greedy advertiser cronies. Twenty years later, Earl's orphaned daughter Josie is an accomplished and obsessive astronomer, closely watching the heavens that swallowed her father. When Earl's long-lost ship unexpectedly plummets to earth, followed by a second craft containing bizarre alien creatures, Josie reunites with Earl, and a full-scale war ensues that pits the Jensens and their extraterrestrial friends against the Machiavellian Dr. Frubar. A family's vengeance and the soul of a nation hang in the balance!

Zany, exuberantly irreverent animated space adventure.

Fans of Plympton's shorts may marginally enjoy the film, but it is doubtful this listless feature will win him any new viewers.

It's a work by an artist so in control of both his medium and his message that he can improvise like a jazzman.

A new film from Bill Plympton, the animation master, is always welcome.

For the future, one hopes Mr. Plympton will find room for one more member of his little band, a professional screenwriter.

New York Times
Top Critic

The director's twitchy sketchbook style and adroit perspective shifts grow wearisome amid leaden pacing and indifferent craftsmanship (most notably wretched sound design).
