  • Summary: Fly Me to the Moon is the story of how three ordinary flies, NAT, I.Q. and SCOOTER managed to sneak aboard the Apollo 11 and forever changed the course of history! Not to mention, gain heroic confidence, overcome a few death-defying challenges and just maybe put an end to the notion that "dreamers get swatted." (Summit Entertainment) Collapse

  1. Will probably pass muster with very young viewers, but their parents may grit their teeth at its saccharine quality.

    The animation IS great and absolutely so fantastic you'll want to reach out and touch the creatures - or swat them off your uncomfortable 3-D glasses.
  3. Would be totally unexceptional if not for its visual telling of the Apollo 11 flight and the fact that the movie is impressively shot - the first animated feature film in 3-D.
  4. Despite some Cold War humor, the formulaic film is aimed squarely at the youngest of young children.
  5. Reviewed by: Michael Ordona
    This oddly paced kids' entertainment displays flashes of intelligence -- then misspells terms on NASA control panels.

    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.
  7. 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.

    It won't keep your attention because it is both unfunny and boring.

    My mom made me take my little brother to go see it the day after it came out. Horrible movie. Period.

    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. Expand

    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. Expand
