Good movie, I wish they focused solely on the space part, seems like most of the movie happened on earth. Also one weird scene where a girl drops what seems to be her wedding ring down the shower drain we never hear or see it again, which would be fine, but it's so out of place. Good movie to watch a night, in pitch black. Some really funny scenes too...
Including this one line of dialogue from someone at the control station to Tom Hank's character.
"Good news, I've just spoken to Richard Nixon he said you'll get an extension on your income tax".
Not verbatim, but the the actual line (don't remember it by heart) and the delivery make it very funny.
There is some minor inaccuracies, but they don't hamper the movie at all.
