Critic Consensus: Astronaut can't quite escape the gravitational pull of its story's sentimental overtones, but Richard Dreyfuss keeps the film in a pleasantly diverting orbit.

Critic Reviews for Astronaut
Dreyfuss remains as fine-tuned and charming an actor as he did the first time he stared longingly up at the heavens.
All of this would be promising territory were Astronaut an offbeat senior-versus-the-world comedy directed by, say, Alexander Payne.
A likable performance by Richard Dreyfuss livens up this easygoing drama about second chances and late-life adventure from actor-turned-director Shelagh McLeod.
It's meant to be consumed quickly and easily and the resulting taste is bland.
