  1. All of this is interesting, but not all that entertaining.
  2. 30
    One of the most undermotivated plots in many a moon, the zero-wit, zero-gravity misadventures of Nat, I.Q. and Scooter are embarked on merely because they're bored on their garbage dump.
  3. The little heroes and their families are surprisingly ugly, with faces resembling skulls, and the colors are so faded and muddy the movie feels tired and bungled.
  4. The vocal characterizations aren't the problem here; the script and the animation are the problems, and in feature animation, you can't arrange more significant problems than those.
  5. Reviewed by: Claudia Puig
    A tribute to a giant leap for mankind feels like a clumsy shuffle backward for animation.

    The film still suffers from cheap plasticky design, a klutzy overall look, dim preschooler humor, and a nearly impact-free story that thinks it's clever when it steals cues from 2001.
  7. Forgive us for being demanding, but shouldn't an animated kids movie like this one be, at the very least, fun? Cute? Watchable?
  8. 20
    Adding to weirdness is a tacked-on, live-action appearance from the real Aldrin, who reassures kids and terrified X-Files fans that there weren't, in fact, any houseflies on board Apollo 11.

    Fly me to the moon is one of the worst films I have ever seen. Also the animation is in terrible quality the worst I have ever seen. Ben Stassen the director of this horrifying movie should be ashamed of himself. What are you thinking this is also is a huge waste of money. Why Ben Why????? Would you make a film this bad.

    Hollywood should just stop making G rated animated movies. Period.

    This film has no redeeming qualities... at all. I took my 7 and 9 year olds to see it, and it was their very first experience of walk-out before the film was done. Full Review »
