A boy obsessed with 50s sci-fi movies about aliens has a recurring dream about a blueprint of some kind, which he draws for his inventor friend. With the help of a third kid, they follow it and build themselves a spaceship. Now what?
Inside Wolfgang's basement, the toy monkey from the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), can be seen.
Explosions in space? It's impossible.
Ben Crandall: What do you mean? You can hardly see the strings.
When Ben and Darren walk over to Wolfgang's house, Ben is wearing brown corduroy pants. Then when they go down to the basement, he's wearing blue jeans for a few shots. And then he's back to wearing his brown corduroys for the rest of the scene.
