Two a a half stars (PG)
Billy Bob Thornton, Virginia Madsen, Bruce Dern, Tim Blake Nelson
Charles Farmer (Thornton), who left the NASA training program and couldn’t get back in, is determined to get into space, even if he must build and launch his own rocket. The follow-your-dreams story is too farfetched and lacking in internal logic even for a feel-good movie. That said, it’s always fun to watch Billy Bob perform, and the loyalty of his family is touching. 104 minutes.
DVD INFO: Includes a making of featurette, a conversation with NASA astronaut David Scott, bloopers and outtakes.
