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.

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.

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