Students Michael (John Stockwell) and Ellie (Danielle Von Zerneck) are looking for spare parts to build Michael’s science project when they chance upon a strange object at a military junkyard. When they use the device, it sends their entire class into a strange and otherworldly realm. It’s up to Michael and Ellie to undo the colossal damage and find a way back home. John Stockwell and Dennis Hopper co-star.
Forgotten eighties teen/sci-fi mash up. Not particularly good but an interesting premise. Funny that a film called My Science Project still pushes the 'geeks' to the background, though it redeems itself toward the end. Mostly a mess, this is the type of film that could benefit from a remake. And yes, that is the same John Stockwell that would go on to direct an abnormal number of films that feature water. I give it a extra half star for nostalgia and for Dennis Hopper's pre-Blue Velvet gas inhalation.
