Flight of the Navigator

Last night we watched an old movie from our childhood, Flight of the Navigator. I don't know if this movie has withstood the test of time, because today it comes across as a dated 1980's movie. It's not timeless, but for those of us who enjoyed it in our youth it was fun to revisit.

Two observations:

1) This movie was really a very simple adventure, but I remember it being amazing as a kid because it was about space and time travel.

2) Also, this movie had a very young Sarah Jessica Parker playing a supporting role. She would go on to become an A-list actor, but the main actor in this film never went on to do anything else really. When this movie was made the two of them seemed comparable as actors, but only one would become a super star.
