  • This movie is the adventure every single boy dreamed of as a kid ... building their own spaceship and flying into space ... and this is one of the best kids adventure movies of the 80's!
The visionary dreams of three curious and adventuresome young boys become an exciting reality in Explorers, the action-fantasy from acclaimed director Joe Dante (Gremlins), who combines keen humor, warmth and fantasy with unexpected twists. In their makeshift laboratory, the boys use an amazing discovery and their ingenuity to build their own spaceship and launch themselves on a fantastic interplanetary journey. A galaxy of adventure for the whole family, starring young River Phoenix (Stand By Me) and Ethan Hawke (Gattaca).

I've waited all my life to say this.Be my guest.We come in peace.
Look, I know I must look weird to you but how do you think you look to me? Listen, I watched four episodes of "Lassie" before I figured out why the little hairy kid never spoke. I mean, he rolled over, sure, he did that fine but, I don't think he deserved a series for that.
