Cameron Edwin (Jim Gaffigan), the host of a failing children’s science TV show called “Above & Beyond”, has always had aspirations of being an astronaut. After a mysterious space-race era satellite coincidentally falls from space and lands in his backyard, his midlife crisis manifests in a plan to rebuild the machine into his dream rocket. As his relationship with his wife (Rhea Seehorn) and daughter (Katelyn Nacon) start to strain, surreal events begin unfolding around him — a doppelgänger moving into the house next door, a car falling from the sky, and an unusual teenage boy forging a friendship with him. He slowly starts to piece these events together to ultimately reveal that there’s more to his life story than he once thought.
Q-tips say: It was just ok.
The production contributes to the feeling of a surrealist adventure that toggles between satirical comedy and something darker and much heavier. A muddled tract about middle-age malaise… We grant some license to arthouse films for trying stuff that’s unusual and different from mainstream fare – and bless them all – but this noble attempt simply fails to take off.

Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin star as estranged friends who reunite to seek revenge on the petulant widower (Malcolm McDowell) of their recently deceased best friend. Along the way, Fonda’s character reunites with her great love (Richard Roundtree) as each woman learns to make peace with the past and each other.
Q-tips say: We kind of enjoyed it but not as much as anticipated. Some parts were funny but overall not that exciting. Was nice to see long time friends getting back together & remembering old times & creating new experiences again.
Even as the promising puzzle pieces don’t quite gel together, the experience still provides a refreshingly morbid comedy bolstered by the radiant talents of the stars.
