Flight of the Navigator

The year is 1978: 12-year-old David Freeman (Joey Cramer), playing in the woods near his home, is knocked unconscious. He awakens and heads home, only to find strangers living there. He also finds that the year is 1986, and that he's been officially missing for eight years. NASA officials determine that David was abducted by aliens during his blackout, and hope to scan the boy's brain in order to unlock a few secrets of the universe. Answering the call of a strange, unseen force, David boards a well-hidden spaceship and takes off, guided by the jocular voice of a computer named MAX (voiced by none other than Paul Reubens, aka Pee-Wee Herman). Realizing that he can't fit in to 1986 so long as he's a child of the '70s, David hopes to retrace the steps of his alien abductors and get back to his own time.

Rather than a start-to-finish narrative, Navigator drops you in the middle of the story and keeps you guessing as the story proceeds. The plot is fantastic and I love the man-meets-alien story. Of course, when the man is a adolescent boy, you know things are going to be funny. The disco alien is hilarious as is the scene where they have to stop for directions at a gas station...in a UFO.

I first saw this movie when it aired on national TV. The entire first half is a huge mystery, as the main character wakes up from a fall several years into the future, where his family has aged and moved to a new home. The main character hasn't aged a day, and when he is taken to the doctor, David seems to be communicating with computers without any knowledge of doing so. His head appears to be filled with star charts of galaxies that humans have no knowledge of. At the same time, an alien craft has crashed and taken in by the government for testing. Great movie and is underrated. Features a younger Jessica Parker.

I first saw this movie on the Wonderful World of Disney and was recently reaquainted with the title. For a movie out of the eighties it is graphically awesome. More people should show this to their bickering children.
