Kenny Starfighter is probably the most hopeless student the Hero academy of the galaxy has ever had. But in his desperate attempt in graduating he accidentally crashes on earth and meets Pontus, an earthling who accidentally stumbled upon an intergalactic crystal which gave him inhuman strength. Now Kenny must save Pontus from Rutger Oversmart who wants the powers from the crystal for himself and Pontus must save Kenny from the fate of failing school and ending up as a hairdresser.

Goofs and Trivia:

  • In the end of the movie when Kenny is talking to Pontus and Miranda at the school yard, the camera crew is reflected in Kenny’s shoulder pad.
  • While existing in real life, the village of Forserum, where Pontus lives, looks nothing likes the cityscape in the film. For instance, exterior shots at his school were shot in Uppsala – Sweden’s fourth largest city.
