MPAA Rated PG for language and emotional intensity

Sex & Nudity

  • There is some kissing and references
  • An unmarried astronaut is showering with a woman. The phone rings and she asks him to let it ring. They are then both seen only covered by towels.
  • An astronaut and his wife are relaxing on lounge chairs. He climbs into her chair and nuzzles her clothed breasts while she playfully resists and then snuggles with him.
  • A reference to an STD; one astronaut speculates that another, whom the movie presents as promiscuous, gave him the clap by using his relief tube.

Violence & Gore

  • There is a scene where a group of astronauts are blown into space.
  • In the opening prologue there is a scene of the Apollo 1 fire and we briefly see the trapped astronauts in the fire while the voice over refers to it as a tragedy.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Adults shown drinking beer at party.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • There are a few quick shots of an early space crew that perished in a fire and the worst shows a man beating on a window with a fire in the background (and we're told that three people died).
  • A nightmare sequence shows an accident in outer space where a hatch is blown off and one of the crew members struggles to keep from being sucked out, but loses his battle.
  • After the initial explosion, the entire rest of the movie becomes a long and tense sequence of events as the men try to return to Earth.
