Space Cowboys | 2000 | PG-13 | - 3.3.5

A former air force team (Clint Eastwood, Tommy Lee Jones, James Garner and Donald Sutherland) is reunited for an outer space voyage to repair a falling satellite's malfunctioning guidance system, which they created decades ago. Also with James Cromwell, Barbara Babcock, Marcia Gay Harden, Courtney B. Vance, William DeVane, Loren Dean, Aleksandr Kuznetsov, John Mallory Asher, Georgia Emelin, Gerald Emerick, Renee Olstead, Rade Serbedzija, Toby Stephens, Mark Thomason and Chris Wylde. [2:15]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A little mild sexual innuendo (in one scene a man mentions orgasms) and a few kisses. A man flirts with a few different women throughout the film. We see four men's bare backsides and bare chests during a physical exam; in another scene, a woman obviously feels uncomfortable while talking in the men's locker room with a man wearing a towel around his waist. In a scene that takes place in the 50s, a man looks at a very mild picture in Playboy (no nudity is visible).

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - An astronaut is launched into outer space, obviously to his death. Pieces of metal rip off a spaceship; one piece hits another ship, knocking about its passengers (one is seen floating head-first into a wall; we later see him unconscious and with a bandage on his forehead, but he is ultimately fine), and another piece hits a person outside the ship, knocking him end over end (he is also knocked unconscious, but he's eventually rescued and ultimately fine). A plane's engine stops, its wing rips off, and then it spins and nosedives for a bit before its two pilots eject (one is nearly hit by another plane as he descends, but both eventually reach the ground unharmed). In two scenes, men punch each other in the face and scuffle (after one of the scenes, both have a swollen eye); in another scene two men briefly push each other, and in another scene a man grabs another's space suit. A car passes another and nearly hits a semi-truck. While a pilot spins and dives in an airplane, a passenger vomits quite a bit (it hits the windshield and is wiped off by the pilot, then we see some on the passenger's face and on the side of the plane after landing).

LANGUAGE 5 - What sounded like one started but unfinished F-word, lots of anatomical and scatological references, lots and lots of mild obscenities, several religious obscenities, and several insults.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
