This movie is basically the same movie as "The Last Starfighter." They are both family friendly, Star Wars/ET themed mash ups.

I remember a few things about this movie. What's funny is that I thought it was made in the '70s. lol.

Nostalgic value for sure - I grew up in the 80s, and this was one of the movies I recall fondly. It may not be as good as say, The Goonies or E.T., but it still has that charm. I don't think it holds up as well as those films, either, but as a look back, it's still worth watching.

There's a fun nostalgic factor for this film, which paints a charming coming of age story against the backdrops of an inventive sci-fi fantasy. It's no E.T. or Close Encounters, but it does have its magical moments and a refreshingly uplifting ending.

I can see why this movie has nostalgia value; the premise is interesting (and was subsequently ripped off for the series "The 4400"). But the child actor's performance is one of the most painful in memory and Paul Reubens is equally painful as robot Max. Only Robin Williams could have been more annoying.

An original Disney concept

Flight of the Navigator, originally aired on the "Disney Sunday night movie". This was one of my favorite movies growing up. It was one that was just fun to watch. The funny thing is that, at the height of his career, it isn't until almost half way into the movie that you realize that Paul Rubens (Pee-Wee Herman) is the voice of "Max".
The movie may not exactly hold up against some of the other movies of the 80's but you have to also keep in mind that this was in the era of when Disney had stopped making animated cartoons. They wanted to make all live action features on a medium grade budget and run them on a non pay channel. This was also at the time when Cable television was really picking up steam, and the Disney channel was an additional cost like HBO.

The movie itself was great...
