Emma Robert’s ‘Space Cadet’ ripped apart for being ‘a real waste of time’

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: ‘Space Cadet’, available for streaming on Prime Video, has sparked a wave of fan reactions, mainly focusing on Emma Roberts’ compelling portrayal of Tiffany ‘Rex’ Simpson.

Directed and written by Liz W Garcia, the film follows Rex, a quirky bartender with a knack for inventing seemingly pointless gadgets, who unexpectedly secures a job at NASA with the help of his best friend Nadine (Poppy Liu).

The whimsical and optimistic plot shows Rex’s journey as she navigates the rigorous world of space exploration, despite her lack of qualifications and her unconventional approach to life.

However, the film also received mixed reactions, with some viewers noting that certain comedic scenes fell flat, missing the mark while delivering laughs effectively.

As fan debates continue to unfold, the film’s mix of whimsy and determination offers a “bit good” take on the space adventure genre.

The #SpaceCadet movie sucked. Bad movie/script; dialogue was bad; acting was pathetic; and was young at all. “Legally Blonde” for the VERY shallow end.
A real waste of time.
