This made me woozy. Extremely thin plot - so, a farmer wants to go into space....he seems to care more about this than he does his loved ones....and that about does it. The rest is ridiculous cliche small-town cheese & a handful of characters with no dimension that make up "the family". The government "baddies" are cartoonish overdone stereotypes, and with lines like "Without the Rocket, we're just a dysfunctional family!" one could imagine how unpleasant The Astronaut Farmer is...and therefore would find no reason to sit through it.

The idea may be good, but the realization was terrible. The movie is full of clichés. You always know what will happen next.

After seeing Billy Bob play a foul-mouthed Santa and drunken baseball coach, it's nice to see him portray a (somewhat) normal family man. You have to strain your credibility of the story, but it's an overall nice family film.
