Goofs

USAF personnel are shown outdoors in uniform but not wearing hats. Regulations require all service personnel to wear headgear ("covers") outdoors, which must be removed when indoors. However, when USAF personnel are located on the flightline (aircraft operations area), the wear of headgear is strictly prohibited as they could easily be ingested into aircraft intakes causing major damage to engines and other mechanics. In addition, base commanders have the authority to declare a "no hat/no salute" parameter for celebrations/receptions on the flightline even if nearby aircraft are stationary and powered down.

Quotes

[first lines]
Brian Gilcrest: [narrating] There was a time I knew everything in the sky. Every satellite, every constellation, souvenirs of space walks and astronauts and rockets launched by NASA in the '60s. As a kid, I looked up and felt the future. It belonged to me.

User Reviews

 
It was good despite the rating
6 April 2016 | by melodyjarredondoSee all my reviews

I was excited when I saw the cast of this film only to find out that it had a pretty poor rating. A friend had even recommended it to me, but I questioned her judgment compared to what apparently 30k people have thought about it. But I finally decided to give it a go, and it was worth it. I honestly don't know why it has such a low rating. The film is definitely slower, but it's the feel of the movie. I thought it was interesting, romantic, and funny. It even made me laugh out loud a few times. I loved Emma's character but Bradley Cooper's character took a little warming up to. If you go into it with an open mind, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
