THE ASTRONAUT FARMER

 

Here's a good fun blend of family drama and satire, showing not just a dream, but living it.

Charlie Farmer (Billy Bob Thornton) -- a charming oddball with a dream as big as outer space -- was a former military pilot and space program dropout, but never abandoned his obsession to orbit the Earth, which explains the presence of a homemade rocket on his ranch.

There's a lot of charm and warmth in this movie, and Billy Bob has never been better.

A-OK!

Billy Bob Thornton gives a great performance in this surprisingly effective fantasy film -- an implausible feel-good movie filled with beautiful cinematography, fine acting, and a compelling script.

It's a motion picture that reminds us all to hold on to our dreams, no matter how ridiculous they may seem to others.

The Astronaut Farmer is a good old fashion movie in a modern setting, something like Gary Cooper or Jimmy Stewart might have starred in in the past.

This is a family-friendly inspirational motion picture, a real modern-day fairy tale about a space cowboy who wants to send himself into orbit with a homemade rocket.

This space oddity is a little corny, but it has the right stuff to dream the impossible dream.
