| why did they have to make it a TV movie?
Granted,this movie could have been much worse. But, having it as a TV movie rather than a Ron Howard production, or even a little miniseries like "From Earth to the Moon" was a big mistake. They just couldn't get as detailed as they should've. I believe that Christa McAuliffe's mother Grace Corrigan referred to this movie as 'a bit of fluff'. Guess the writers didn't really do much research into this thing. While Karen Allen usually does a great job in whatever movie she's in, she just wasn't convincing as Christa. Plus, she didn't even look like her - she looked more like Barbara Morgan (Christa's back-up teacher) with curly hair, or maybe some distant cousin of Sally Ride. And I couldn't help but think someone in the casting department had a sick sense of humor - Barry Bostwick was cast to play Dick Scobee. Remember how lovely Barry looked in those fishnet pantyhose in 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show'? Bad casting choice...
