I recall this to be a bit dragging though the performances were fantastic. Nothing groundbreaking and not that bad as well. Premise is somewhat overdone so nothing really new. The Astronaut's Wife is a decent drama which lacks the thrilling moments in its genre.

This movie was better than I thought, both Depp, Theron and Morton's performances were good and the plot wasn't at all what I expected. I thought it was going to be a sappy drama, and what I got was a sci-fi/triller. Check it out.

"The Astronaut's Wife" by Yojimbo

An astronaut returns to Earth after an accident during a space walk, but his wife soon begins to suspect that he is not the man who she married. Rosemary's Baby gets the sci-fi treatment in this hokey supernatural thriller from the Twilight Zone school. The obvious draw for this film is the cast and Charlize Theron's hand-wringing turn as a paranoid spouse in the midst of spooky goings on makes it all very reminiscent of The Devil's Advocate. Unfortunately Johnny Depp's appeal has always revolved around his quirky charm and his serious miscasting here makes all sense of menace disappear; in fact I think that most women would think the idea of Jack Sparrow as their personal stalker would be quite appealing! But by far the biggest weakness of the film is the silly script that gets ever more...
