Film (1986). ABC. Dir Harry Winer, starring Kate Capshaw, Lea Thompson, Kelly Preston, Larry B. Scott, Leaf Phoenix, Tate Donovan, Tom Skerritt. Screenplay W.W. Wicket, Casey T. Mitchell, from a story by Patrick Bailey, Larry B. Williams. 108 mins. Colour.
   At a NASA-sponsored summer space camp, a flight simulation in a space shuttle becomes the real thing after the intervention of a well meaning ROBOT, and 4 teenagers and a small boy have to replenish their oxygen from a satellite and then bring the shuttle down again. With the help of the Force (from STAR WARS [1977]) and their own self-reliance they manage. This implausible but patriotic advertisement for Teamwork and the American Way has plenty of tension (and, in the wake of the Challenger disaster, plenty of bad taste), but stereotyped characters, mediocre process work in the space scenes and flat direction render it routine.
