Four top fighter pilots, now retired, are brought back into service to assist NASA during a major satellite crisis. Although their cocky, nonconformist attitudes kept the quartet out of the space program in the 1960s, their specialized knowledge about the workings of a damaged satellite unexpectedly enables them, late in their lives, to get another chance to go into space--if they can pass the same physical and skill tests as the younger astronauts.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: While the plot is overly cliched, the suberb acting by the stars (especially the tense interactions between Clint Eastwood and Tommy Lee Jones) and the spectacular special effects make this a movie worth seeing.

Fun if predictable adventure has great cast.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie has some strong language and some sexual references. Sutherland's character is portrayed as a perpetual womanizer and this is supposed to be charming and virile, even when he makes a very vulgar comment on Jay Leno's show. Characters drink and smoke, punch each other, and engage in other kinds of risky behavior. There's a sad death.
