      Daniel F Don't expect this to be a great movie but if you like Harland Williams antics than this will be your kind of movie. There were parts that literally made me crack up. The movie as a whole is trash but you can also make art out of trash so there you go. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 09/11/23 Full Review Audience Member This may not be the intellectual masterpiece of the late 20th century, but it is one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen. Watched it many times with tears in my eyes from laughing so hard. There’s a reason why the audience score is much higher than the critics score.. because audiences have an actual sense of humor. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/15/23 Full Review Pau P I literally laughed the whole time! This is one great slapstick comedy! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/15/23 Full Review Tim R One of my all-time favorites. So funny!! Harland Williams is so underrated... ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/08/23 Full Review Patrick L This movie is awesome. Very very funny. Underrated. Under appreciated.

      Mike Clark USA Today One small step for an unknown comic. One giant stumble for comedy-kind.

Rated: 0.5/4 Mar 28, 2022 Full Review Deborah Hornblow Hartford Courant Despite a comic performance by Harland Williams, Disney's formulaic kiddie pic ``RocketMan'' doesn't have enough of the right stuff to make it a real blast. Jan 2, 2018 Full Review Heather Boerner Common Sense Media A so-so sophomoric space comedy. Rated: 2/5 Dec 18, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews
