Storyline

Space Station 76 is a refueling satellite near an alternate-reality Earth, circa 1976. Jessica arrives to serve as the station's new first mate. While she narrates a piece about how she likes the predictability of asteroids, some placidly drifting asteroids are shown colliding in chain-reaction fashion. While at first the station appears normal and the people friendly, Jessica soon discovers that the people on board have issues due to the isolation and stress of being cooped up with one another in a relatively small space far from Earth. This is in addition the usual problems people struggle with, such as infidelity, loneliness, depression, and drug abuse. She tries to make friends and fit in, but, unable to connect meaningfully with anyone, she becomes lonely. She's baffled and disillusioned by the stiff and irritable Captain Glenn, who harbors secrets of his own. She finds herself drawn to Ted, a lonely, married crewman, and his 7 year-old daughter, Sunshine. Ted yearns to reconnect... Written by Ken B.

Contrastive to every other review here...
23 September 2014 | by anon7310See all my reviews

I went into this not wanting to watch it - and was left a little perplexed by the dislike for this film; as was my other half. I think part of it could be cultural and us Brits having a different sense of humour to Americans/Canadians (which is where this film has thus far been released).

Frankly, I found this a lot more entertaining than comedies like 'Bad Neighbors', 'This is the End', 'Pineapple Express', 'Hangover'... or basically anything with Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill or Michael Cera - these sort of films generally seem to unimpress me and make the rare list of things I end up turning off. I'm not saying they are terrible films... I'm just saying that *I* think they are terrible utter rubbish 'movies' (or rather, polished turds) that should have never been made. Again; probably my different sense of humour, contrastive to a lot of reviewers here who have echoed similar thoughts about Space Station 76.

Now, Space Station 76 isn't paced to have you laughing at every second - and it is deliberately slow as a film; rather, it's a window into daily life in space coupled with awkward discourse and events amongst the small community on the ship. It's evident this is going to end up as more of a cult movie: it deserves to be.

The sets are wonderfully put together and create a consistent sense of galactic immersion, the acting is brilliant, the cast is filled with a lot of familiar faces from great films and the comedy delivers well. Yes, it might not all be inoffensive - but it's pretty brilliant.

This is a great movie the way it is. Things do get a little dry at either end of the film but it's forgivable.
