Truly pathetic.

Boston Globe
Doesn't really have a climax that works, making you wonder whether all the nutso plot machinations were worth following. Maybe, maybe not. But there were a number of skewed bits that popped out and put a chuckle into this journey. Full Review

The New York Times
Soars as much as it crashes. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
Unfortunately that blast-off heralds an orbit to nowhere, with initial delight fading as pic runs out of ideas all too soon, never building a sense of momentum or narrative thrust. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
Much of Astronaut comes off as tedious and self-amused, but the musical vignettes are fun. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
The best part of this proudly absurd experience is the music. Full Review
