Movie Reviews

Newsday - 10/10 by John AndersonThe rare film that can make you question your own sanity, but The Astronaut Farmer is so lacking in plausibility, explanation, motivation and physical science that you start to ask: Is it me? Rest assured: It's them.
Killer Movie Reviews - 10/10 by Andrea Chasechallenges the status quo with a gentle but insistent nudge, celebrating personal freedom over the restraints of a big government that answers to no one. It's quintessentially American and quintessentially enchanting
eFilmCritic.com - 10/10 by Peter SobczynskiA wise, weird and wonderful indie film that is chock-full of quirky characters, intriguing situations and sly social satire.
Film Journal International - 10/10 by Ethan AlterHas a scrappy charm that's hard to completely resist.
Mark Reviews Movies - 9/10 by Mark DujsikSure, characters spout inspirational lines left and right, but its warm, cozy, and sometimes renegade vibe is utterly contagious.
Christian Science Monitor - 9/10 by Peter RainerSome movies are so flagrantly awful that they achieve classic status. To this rarefied company we must now add The Astronaut Farmer, a nut brain fable that is all the more perversely enjoyable for being seriously intended.
Laramie Movie Scope - 9/10 by Robert RotenIf you like Frank Capra-like movies, then this is for you.
San Francisco Chronicle - 9/10 by Ruthe SteinThe Astronaut Farmer's goofy quality makes it totally endearing. It's also super entertaining. Critics are fond of referring to movies as a 'great ride.' With this one, the words couldn't be more apt.
Orlando Weekly - 9/10 by John ThomasonComing off like Horatio Alger in a spacesuit, The Astronaut Farmer is anachronistic in a refreshing way, echoing the persistent can-do industriousness of classic Americana, where working hard to achieve your goal is all that matters.
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - 9/10 by Philip MartinCharlie Farmer is not so sunny that he doesn't carry a bit of menace with him - in the end he may be closer to Lonesome Rhodes than Sheriff Andy Taylor. This freak is going to be lighting something up - might as well be a rocket.
