Blast off for outrageously funny space travel in this screwball comedy that spins wildly out of control all the way to Mars! Though he's a whiz with computers, accident-prone astro-nut Fred Randall (comedian Harland Williams - "Dumb And Dumber") is the last guy on Earth you'd want on the first manned mission to Mars. But as bad luck and poor timing would have it, that's exactly what happens and Fred undergoes rigorous, if not hilarious, training at NASA. After that, it's t-minus a reality check as Fred blasts off with the rest of the space shuttle crew: a cocky, non-nonsense Commander, a sexy Mission Specialist and a mischievous space chimp named Ulysses. From the dizzying preflight foolishness to the even loonier landing, Rocketman is the out-of-this-world hit comedy that's more than go for launch, it's go for laughs!
