San Francisco Chronicle
Best movie of the summer.
88
An amiable mix of "Grumpy Old Men" comedy and "Apollo 13" can-we-fix-this-jalopy-before-we-die? Drama.
88
Chicago Tribune
Ends up working like a charm.
88
New York Post
Expertly directed, acted and written crowd-pleaser.
75
USA Today
Preposterous to the extreme.

New York Daily News
The joy of Space Cowboys is in spending quality time with some favorite old actors who obviously enjoy working together.
75
Chicago Sun-Times
The stuff in outer space is unexpected, the surprise waiting out there is genuine, and meanwhile, there's an abundance of charm and screen presence from the four veteran actors.
75
Christian Science Monitor
The story takes a while to get started, but the acting is lively, the special effects are snazzy.
74
Mr. Showbiz
He's (Eastwood) made a mature film that bests nearly all of the summer's highly touted blockbusters for pure escapism.
70
Rolling Stone
The plot is too implausible to rank with "Unforgiven," but, oh, what a fun ride.
67
Entertainment Weekly
Poorly engineered: lurchingly paced, the dramatic conflicts duct taped together.
