Movie Info

Withdrawn, skinny seventh-grader Spencer Griffith (Joseph Mazzello), who spends recess avoiding class bully Turbo (Joey Simmrin), gets some encouragement from his teacher, Janet Holloway (Corinne Bohrer), but his life remains stuck at the starting gate. One night Spencer spots a meteor, checks it out, and discovers the android Cyborsuit (Alex Daniels, with the voice of Arthur Burghardt), a being that seeks an organic host to inhabit its interior. Spencer does just that, and once inside, he learns that he has superpowers. Obviously, Turbo will prove to be no match, but then Spencer finds he must defeat the outer-space arachnid Broodwarrior (Brian Simpson). Filmed under the working title The Warrior of Waverly Street.more

Audience Reviews for Star Kid

you know if i lived the rest of my life without flixster reminding me of StarKid, it would have been fine. so theres my answer to this movie

I remember when this movie came out I avoided it like the plague. Stupid title, ugly poster and directed by Manny "Dr. Giggles" Coto. Ugh! Man, was I wrong! This is actually a surprisingly great family film with some really good-looking FX. I'll definatly see this one again.

I am sure it would be great entertainment for kids, but adults will only be mildly entertained. It's not too bad, it has some imaginative touches, but a really successful family film needs to be just that, a film that appeals to all family members.
