Garriott's story is unique, a stranger-than-fiction tale that is unlikely to be topped. And the images from space - crisp, spectacular, haunting - make it worth the trip.

It's a bit precious in its narcissistic point of view, but still a kick to watch the hopelessly devoted astronaut wannabe fulfill his wildest dream.

Completely lacking in imagination and purpose, this vanity project might suffice as a home movie, but it's hardly worth the expense and bother of seeing it in a theater.

"Man on a Mission," the most expensive home movie ever made, is one man's genial account of his trip into outer space.

The film summons up the childlike wonder and optimism inherent in space exploration, while examining how it's opening up to self-funded travelers.

This documentary about a private citizen's journey into space plays like the most expensive home movie ever made.

It is difficult, in fact, to discern who the intended audience is for Man on a Mission, save aspirant cosmonauts with a fortune to burn up in the atmosphere or perhaps the Garriott family.

Experiencing this doc can feel like being pinned to your seat by an excited 12-year-old who's watched Apollo 13 too often.
