An engaging drama originally based on a true story. It's completely entertaining.

A really great movie from a true story. I love that the REAL Homer Hickam (the person the movie is about) did commentary on the DVD. The bad thing about this movie is that it's so hard to tell someone about it if they haven't seen it without making the movie sound lame... "It's about these boys that live in a tiny town and learn model rocket building so they can enter the National Science Fair." It's just... you can't do it. You have to hope they trust you enough to watch the movie anyway and see that the plot of the movie really doesn't do the quality of the movie justice. It really is a heartwarming movie about kids that actually think they can get more from life than the small town they live in can provide.
