    My girlfriend is after a film, but does not know the title. She has tried describing it, but to no avail.

    Maybe someone on here can help?

    Here we go.


    group of kids find a little metal ball, that goes flying around. they build a spaceship around it, in the woods out of junk. they get into space, and meet some aliens who are addicted to earth TV. It turns out that the aliens are children and have stolen their parents space ship.

    please help it driving her nuts(and me ;) )

    Thanks in advance.

    It's not Glitterball

    GLITTERBALL - IT'S THE late '70s. STAR WARS is causing much damage screenwise. The Kids are deserting your nice, honest, provincial, low-budget adventures in droves. What to do? Put on a cheap-as-cheap-can sci-fi winner, that's what. The "aliens" in this effort were - wait for it - animated ball bearings/silvered golf balls, who trundled jerkily around, devouring cakes, Marathons etc. while emitting a high-pitched bleepy noise. CFF mainstay DUDLEY SUTTON was the obligatory nasty grown-up who was out to exploit them for some reason or other. Two kids found one of the balls and "befriended" it somehow. It all came to a head "down the rec", where the balls had their revenge, massing up in less-than-spectacular manner to clobber the foe. The decorations on an archetypal seventies trifle never seemed the same again...

    Damn you atacam :D
