So... was it real or all in his head?

What are your thoughts?

The musical cue at beginning and end suggest/play at it being in his head. I like to think it’s reality as that’s a more pleasent ending.

Great movie either way. I really like a lot of Arnold’s sci-fi stuff.

The movie was intended to leave you with that very question: Was it real or the vacation that he paid for?

There's a short musical jingle/cue at the first dream mars sequence in the beginning of the movie and you hear it in the end of the film which depending on your interpretation means he's a vegetable and is stuck in his head in a never ending dream or its just music and he's fine. You are left to be the judge which is a great move.

In my world it’s real. After watching the movie about a hundred times I’m pretty sure it’s supposed to be in his head. Too many coincidences otherwise.

The "vacation" package he chose was called "Blue Sky on Mars" so...
