boring, what else i can say .. well maybe boring again? the plot is intriguing but.. that's it .. a lot off bla bla about a guy that want to fly a rocket. a little drama here, a little drama there. i did like the fact that US officials are made bigots, @%#^ heads and so on, because sometimes they are. There always is a bigger plan that sweep under the carpet the little guy and his dreams. Bruce Dern was like a paralytic or something.. literally he can fall apart in some scenes. Thorthon was OK, but i think that he can fit in the jack ass role much easier and can play a lot better. Damn boring.. i almost fall to sleep during this movie..

The Synopsis for The Astronaut Farmer (2006) 1080p
Texan Charles Farmer left the Air Force as a young man to save the family ranch when his dad died. Like most American ranchers, he owes his bank. Unlike most, he's an astrophysicist with a rocket in his barn - one he's built and wants to take into space. It's his dream. The FBI puts him under surveillance when he tries to buy rocket fuel; the FAA stalls him when he files a flight plan - it's post-9/11, after all. His wife is angry when she finds out their bank is initiating foreclosure. Charlie fears failure and decides, precipitously, to launch. Are twenty-first century American dreams just a sign of insanity? Are those who believe in dreamers only fools?

a waste of timeReviewed byreddevil_insideVote: 4/10
One of the worst movies I've watched in years. I only watched it on a 6-hr flight because Billy Bob T and Bruce W were listed in the cast and I didn't want to strain my eyes by reading a book for the entire 6 hours. Shame on you Billy Bob and Bruce for not turning down the roles after reviewing the incredibly sappy dialog of this script! I should have gone back to my book after seeing the missile in the Texas barn during the first few minutes. But since one knows that the main character can't possibly die before the end of the movie, I felt compelled to watch for a successfullaunch in the overhead monitor while multitasking with a crossword puzzle and other things. This movie sadly lacks the warped humor of Bad Santa, Slingblade,U-Turn, and others....
This movie proves that Hollywood can make great family movies. I just saw an advanced screening of this movie in AZ and must say it was fantastic. The Polish brothers (writers, producers, directors, stars, fathers of stars) and Billy Bob Thornton were in attendance for a Q&A after the film and were quite interesting. They said this movie cost $12 million dollars to make and was done as an independent. The movie shows how a family can come together to accomplish a task and achieve a dream even when the full weight of the Gov. comes against them. No matter which side of the political aisle you are on you will find the timely shots at the government funny. This movie will hit all your emotional buttons. Support the INDEPENDENT film makers! GO SEE THIS MOVIE! By the way the two little girls who star as Billy Bob's kids are the daughters of the Polish bothers.
