After Kevin aborted the automatic re-entry to rescue Andie, they stated that there was not enough oxygen even with the refuel to make the next landing window at Edwards. In reality, the first landing available to an orbiting shuttle would have been back at Kennedy an orbit before an Edwards landing was possible, and even if they missed the first one, there would have been at least one more opportunity on the next orbit for any of the four available landing sites (Kennedy, White Sands, Edwards, and Gregg County Airport in Longview, Texas [is deemed an emergency landing location for the shuttle]), about 90 minutes later, well within the 12 hours' air they had left.

If you want some fun for a couple of hours, you will get it. No violence, no moral lessons and nice scenes specially for those who are interested in space stuff.
This movie also feeds the curiosity of many people about a space shuttle trip, but the problem is that it was released a few months after the Challenger disaster, a sad coincidence. Of course, this episode contributed for a bad performance on the theaters even being pushed back months.
Don't expect too much in terms of plot, although i really think this is not the more important thing in movies like this one.
