John Brown (Billy Connolly), a loyal and empathetic Scottish commoner takes it upon himself to revivify the widowed Queen Victoria (Judi Dench), who is inconsolable with grief after the death of her husband, Prince Albert.
Judi Dench is, as always, brilliant in her role. Highly recommended.
It stars James Brolin and Elliott Gould, among others.
A manned mission to Mars lifts off without the men due to a shortcoming in the life-support gear. NASA must fake success in order to maintain its funding. Under duress, the astronauts go along with the scheme -- for awhile.
Uninspired acting mostly, but nonetheless an engaging movie. I've read that this movie had NASA's cooperation, even though NASA plays the bad guy. 'Don't suppose it was NASA's way of 'fessing up about Apollo, maybe?
