Astronaut Sam Bell has a quintessentially personal encounter toward the end of his three-year stint on the Moon, where he, working alongside his computer, GERTY, sends back to Earth parcels of a resource that has helped diminish our planet's power problems.
Kevin Spacey did actually eat a banana with its peels. See more »
Prot removes his glasses and lays them down so that the top of the glasses are laying on the table. Later, when Mark Powell rushes in, the glasses are lying right-side-up and facing opposite direction. See more »
Dr. Mark Powell:
26:16 Let me tell you something, Mark. You humans. Most of you subscribe to this policy of an eye for an eye. A life for a life, which is known throughout the universe for its stupidity. Even your Buddha and your Christ had quite a different vision. But nobody has paid much attention to them, not even the Buddhists or the Christians. Sometimes, it's hard to imagine how you've made it this far.

After the credits we see stars and then we see Dr. Mark Powell through the lens of his telescope as he is looking for the star of K-PAX. He walks in his yard and the movie ends. See more »
K-PAX is exactly what a heart warming film should be. The story is about a
mysterious mental patient Prot, played by Kevin Spacey, and his unbelieving
psychiatrist Dr. Powel, played by Jeff Bridges. The two have a very
friendly bond, and as their relationship grows Dr. Powel can't help but
wonder whether or not there is more to his mysterious patient, who insists
he is from another planet called K-PAX. This film is very funny, and Kevin
Spacey pulls of well placed one liners as if it was his second nature.
K-PAX is a smart film, and I wasn't expecting it to go where it did. In
end, I found myself thinking about the small things in life, and the wonder
and magic of the every day life we so often take for granted. I left the
theater with a warm fuzzy feeling inside, and for families and couples on a
date, K-PAX is a splendid film, that will not disappoint. I highly
this film to anyone interested in something more than the monotonous
releases of glossy, action packed, gore fests.
