Weak and saggy script meets predictable plot.

Problems are evident, and eminent, from a black-and-white flashback prologue in which four young men speak with old actors' voices. Yes, a man purportedly in peak physical condition sounds like a 70-year-old who's eaten bags of gravel daily for 30 years.

Grumpy Old Astronauts--or, rather, Grumpy Old Air Force Officers Who Get Sent into Space to Fix a Damaged Satellite.

A terrible effort with a bland script, boring plot, and uninspired story...

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette equivocal movie that can't seem to decide whether to play its ridiculous premise straight.

Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)

It's tempting to pin a derisive label like Geezers in Space on this comedy-drama, but its veteran stars...make Space Cowboys hard to dislike.

Charm and personality are able to overwhelm the inherent silliness of the situation and the characters.

Despite the poignancy of old age, the mood of the film is cheerful, sustained by the high spirits of the four veterans.

I hope a few more scripts for these old geezers are in the offing. Like the Lemmon-Matthau films, this one is just plain fun.

Like its stars, the movie may be a little creaky sometimes, but it suffers from no lack of attitude.

one of the summer's most pleasant surprises, a solid "buddy picture" with a startlingly suspenseful last half-hour.

Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

One advantage "Space Cowboys" has over "Armageddon" is that Eastwood is a more laconic director than Michael Bay. Then again, who isn't?

Em alguns momentos, acaba lembrando excessivamente o competente Apollo 13, mas isso mais uma virtude do que um defeito.

Where Armageddon merely strutted, Cowboys swaggers. What's the difference? Style.

Space Cowboys doesn't so much embrace high concept as get dragged behind it kicking and screaming.

Clint, for all his good intentions and graceful aging, is in danger of overstaying his welcome.

Like any self-respecting Olympia Dukakis movie, Space Cowboys knows its demographic and panders pathetically to them.

If you're only going to see one average film this year, it's worth putting this one on the short list.

It's light-years away from being an Eastwood classic, but it passes a likable two hours.
