      Audience Member Anyone who doesn't like this movie is part of the cancer. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member A personal hero of mine Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member The best thing about this docu-drama on Bill "Spaceman" Lee is the font on the title. Josh Duhamel is fine in the lead role, but there's nothing to this movie. Bill Lee is one of the oddest people to ever play baseball and we get a boring story of him "still pitching" for some beer league in who-the-hell-cares Canada?? The look of the film is just above amateur and most of the actors are terrible. A really poor effort on what should have been a really interesting subject. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member A fun movie about Bill the Spaceman Lee! For the love of baseball this movie was great! Love Josh Duhamel who plays the lovable stoner baseball player that can't give up the game! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member I really, really enjoyed Spaceman! It was very entertaining, the acting was great, and it was funny. A sleeper movie that probably won't get the audience and the credit it deserves. I highly recommend it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Stoners and sports fans alike will love this film. Worth a viewing for Duhamel's performance alone!

      Neil Genzlinger New York Times The effort is commendable, but the execution is rocky. Aug 18, 2016 Full Review Michael Rechtshaffen Los Angeles Times While a fictionalized account of Lee's career certainly held some sex, drugs & rock 'n' roll potential, the blandly pedestrian film "Spaceman" seldom delivers despite an engagingly game lead performance by Josh Duhamel. Aug 18, 2016 Full Review Mark Feeney Boston Globe Overall the results are amiable, if also slack and talky. Rated: 2/4 Aug 18, 2016 Full Review Brian Orndorf Blu-ray.com Unfortunately, Duhamel's bright performance ends up the highlight of the feature, which only provides a vague idea of Lee's life and love for belligerent behavior. Rated: C Aug 25, 2016 Full Review Michael Garmonsway The Playlist There seems like there could have been quite the stylish biopic in Rapkin's version of events, but the telling is underwhelming. Rated: C Aug 21, 2016 Full Review Frank Lovece Film Journal International Spaceman never goes below the surface to who [Bill] Lee really is, despite copious interior monologues presumably taken from Lee's own book.
