The phrase "over the hill" only applies where there's gravity! Forty years after their original space mission was scrapped, a retired Air Force "space cowboy" leads a group of former astronauts on a dangerous mission to help repair a damaged Cold-War-era Russian satellite. Despite their age, they prove they still have the right stuff. Directed by and starring Oscar-winner Clint Eastwood ("Million Dollar Baby," "Unforgiven"). The all-star cast includes Oscar-winner Tommy Lee Jones ("The Fugitive," the "Men in Black" movies), Oscar-nominee James Garner ("Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood," "Maverick"), Golden Globe-winner Donald Sutherland ("The Art of War," "JFK") and Oscar-nominee James Cromwell ("The Sum of All Fears," "L.A. Confidential"). Action and comedy combine to make this a trip into orbit that few will forget!

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Space Cowboys is poorly engineered: lurchingly paced, the dramatic conflicts duct taped together.
Fresh: It's a rare pleasure to watch four terrific actors having the time of their lives.
Fresh: An absorbing mix of perilous suspense, derring-do, personal courage and well-judged self-sacrifice.
Fresh: The movie may not pack anything near the emotional punch of Unforgiven, but it's an entertainingly raffish action-comedy nonetheless.
