Family Movie Night: THE SPACE BETWEEN US

Thanks to Universal Pictures Home Entertainment we were able to enjoy THE SPACE BETWEEN US for a Family Movie Night a few days before its May 16, 2017 release on Blu-ray and DVD.  The film is a lighthearted teenage romance flick set within a sci-fi movie which takes audiences on an out-of-this world journey.  It provides a glimpse of the Earth from a human who is visiting the planet for the first time and has to make you wonder about how those of us living here take so much for granted when it comes to appreciating our world.

THE SPACE BETWEEN US is the story of sixteen year old Gardner Elliot who is the first human born on Mars, living his whole live with a team of scientists on the red planet.  He's always longed to see Earth to seek out the father he's never known and to meet a girl named Tulsa who he has befriended through the Internet.  He finally gets the chance to visit Earth and see Tulsa in person, but during his stay doctors discover Gardner's heart can't withstand Earth's atmosphere.  Before being sent back to Mars, he and Tulsa slip away and embark on a cross-country adventure to take in experiencing the world around them and search for his father before time runs out.

This is an enjoyable movie to enjoy while lounging out on the couch eating a bowl of popcorn on a lazy weekend.  Don't take it too seriously and appreciate it for being a cheesy romantic adventure and you'll have fun watching it.  Rated PG-13 because of its romantic theme and foul language that includes damn, dick, ass and crap there really isn't anything too objectionable in the movie for parent to be overly concerned about their kids seeing.  Younger viewers may not want to watch it because the boyfriend-girlfriend dynamic of the show may make them go "ew!"  Embracing love is an overarching premise of the movie that viewers will either appreciate or mock at.  Not to be lost in the romantic elements of the movie though is that THE SPACE BETWEEN US has a very important message within it.  Appreciate the incredible beauty of the Earth!
