In their makeshift laboratory, three boys use an amazing discovery and their ingenuity to build their own spaceship and launch themselves on a fantastic interplanetary journey.
Info added by Rmcstar

Young Ben Crandall (Ethan Hawke) spends his free time watching sci-fi films, playing video games and reading comic books. Surprisingly, his affinity for all things fantastical yields a real result -- when he has a vivid dream about technology, his science-loving friend Wolfgang Muller (River Phoenix) manages to create a working spacecraft. Joined by their buddy Darren Woods (Jason Presson), the boys take off into outer space and encounter some very odd extraterrestrial life.

    This is very expensive on bluray so this is decent. I loved this film as a young boy. I always felt it lost its way when the aliens got involved though. Stupid aliens.

    Shocked how many people on this post have seen this, when I've mentioned it to people nobody seems to have a clue about it! Probably still got the VHS in the loft! Loved this as a kid

    Weirdly I'd never seen this. I watched it a few months ago. It was good up until they met the aliens. Not saying it was bad after that but it was so very odd! I guess it was a product of the times.

    I used to have a giant poster of this in my bedroom when I was a kid. Managed to blag it from my local VHS rental shop
