One of the best entertainments this season has yet offered.

Philadelphia Inquirer
An amiable mix of "Grumpy Old Men" comedy and "Apollo 13" can-we-fix-this-jalopy-before-we-die? Drama.
80
Village Voice
An entertainingly raffish action-comedy.

Los Angeles Times
This is a mostly genial film that gets as much mileage as it can out of the undeniable charisma of its stars.

Rolling Stone
The plot is too implausible to rank with "Unforgiven," but, oh, what a fun ride.

Film.com
The filmmaker has given us two films for the price of one. Unfortunately, the second film, a gripping thriller which occupies the last 45 minutes of Space Cowboys, is much better and more involving than the first film.
67
A lighthearted action adventure starring four of the most likable guys on the planet.

Entertainment Weekly
Poorly engineered: lurchingly paced, the dramatic conflicts duct taped together.
63
Charlotte Observer
The part that caters to older fans is funny and satisfying, if unbelievable. The part that plays to action-movie devotees is muddled, unsatisfying and unbelievable. Luckily, the first part is about two-thirds of the movie.

If only this amiable shaggy dog story...didn't degenerate into an implausible, second-rate thriller after takeoff.
