MovieFilter: Alien ship abducts kid, gives him galaxy map?
October 29, 2007 1:52 AM   Subscribe

1980s-90s movie: An alien spacecraft had to upload the galaxy's map into the 90% of a kid's brain that was unused.

There was an alien ship, and it was silver. It spoke to the child, I think the ship may have abducted him. The ship had "a stealth mode thing going on."

What is the title of this movie?

It was probably "Flight of the Navigator".


Compliance!

Damn! For the first time I actually knew the answer.

I always think of FOTN whenever I hear "I get around" by the Beach Boys.

Fun fact: the voice of the ship was Paul Reubens.

Additional fun fact: The spaceship is still on display at Disney Studio's Backlot Tour in FL.
