Critics reviews

Like most movies that aggressively strive for cult status, The American Astronaut can often be tiresome in its relentless quest for novelty. What saves it is that it’s also a musical… Collectively [the musical numbers] make The American Astronaut a memorable experience above and beyond sheer nuttiness—sort of a cross between Deadwood and The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T., but not quite as amazing as that sounds.
