BEYOND THE STARS (1989) **

This middling drama wastes a good cast and an intriguing premise.  Christian Slater stars as a NASA obsessed kid who gets to meet his astronaut idol (Martin Sheen) and is disappointed to learn that he is a drunken lout.  Of course, they become friends and learn life lessons from each other.  The two leads’ charisma is trapped underneath their clichéd characters and a snail like pace.  Co-starring a before she spread her legs Sharon Stone.
