Reviews

  • "GOOD NIGHT OPPY is a lively celebration of unabashed nerdiness and enthusiastic problem-solving, the sort of movie that feels designed to attract Wall-E-loving children, who can then be shaped into the engineers and astrophysicists of the future."
    - The Hollywood Reporter
  • "For large segments of its running time, GOOD NIGHT OPPY is more than just a documentary; it’s an animated film as well — and a hugely entertaining one at that."
    - Variety
  • "This all actually happened, but it is quite unusual in that it is truly feel-good, and it has all been brought to new life in an irresitible new film that in a time of divisiveness and negativity will remind you of the very best of us."
    - Deadline Hollywood Daily
  • "White caters to our shared wonder about the solar system and our penchant to seek connection — even if it’s with our robot rovers. Those basic human drives are potent enough to make this trip worthwhile."
