    Flight of the Navigator? It's a Disney movie I remember seeing and thinking, "why did the boy not get any older?" I was 10 when I saw it and had never heard of relativity. This movie, however, does not have a time difference of 25 years, only eight so I am unsure if it is the one you have in mind.

    Here's a link on a write up someone did: http://mjyoung.net/time/flight.html

    yeah, is that that movie with the silver spaceship, and then the kid is in like a hostpital or something and his brain is full of information. and then he's in some hospital room, and there's some guys looking at him through 2-way glass and I think there's a robot, and then he's on the spaceship and flying all over the place...in the desert I think.

    ...that's all I rememeber
    and he's in a ditch or something at the beginning of the movie, I believe.
