Starring John Stockwell, Danielle von Sterneck, Fisher Stevens, Barry Corbin, Dennis Hopper
A car enthusiast, and fledgling high school student, Michael Harlan stumbles upon a mysterious and alien device that he hopes can get him an A as his science project. The device turns out to be some kind of interdimensional portal, and a very small amount of chaos ensues (very contained). Hoping to drift off the success of better ’80s teen sci-fi flicks like Back to the Future, My Science Project never delivers on the thrills or adventure of it all. The characters are compelling enough, the setting is interesting, the setup is fine, and then…nothing. Very anti-climactic.
