Hey! It's Falcon Heene...


I wonder if this was where that wacky family got the idea.

Just my $.02

could be but there were way too few ballons to get that kid airborne. And this was the first movie I thought of when I saw the actual ballon

Isn't there also a movie about a guy riding in a lawn chair, boosted into the air by balloons, over the countryside? Perhaps a French movie? I know it's played a few times on IFC, but can't remember the name.

"Danny Deckchair"

I couldn't remember the title at first, but did remember that it starred Rhys Ifans. You put a smile on my face, h'tart, by wondering aloud if it was French; the Montgolfiers aside, DDeckchair couldn't be less Gallic!

That's the one! Thanks so much, fortunate1. I'd never actually seen the movie, just read the blurb and noted the oddity of the subject. So, I've no idea why I thought it French, just that I did.
