Storyline

Dr. Huntley and Professor Nichols are able to complete their work on a moon rocket because of an unexpected inheritance. They travel to the moon, but find a lush garden paradise rather than a barren wasteland. They are captured by virtually naked telepathic humanoids and taken in front of the Great Council. The Moon Goddess decides they should be allowed to continue their experiments, and Dr. Huntley begins falling in love with her. Professor Nichols worries about getting Huntley to return to earth.

Campy but dull nudie flick
29 May 2007 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

Doris Wishman has made some really jaw-dropping and hilarious exploitation films, especially the Chesty Morgan films and "Bad Girls Go to Hell". However, the infamous "Nude on the Moon" isn't in their league. And you know what that means - this is one dull flick. Its one of those films you can watch on fast-forward and pick up on all the plot details. And while its certainly campy and shoddy-looking, there isn't a laugh to be found. A few smirks sure, but never a real moment of unintentional humor.

I'm not sure exactly what went wrong, because the premise itself made this flick sound funner than it actually is. Maybe its Wishman's pacing, or lack thereof. Her trademark style is on display (focusing on random objects when the characters talk to cover up the post-dubbed dialog), but its not as fun this time around. This is one of those films were absolutely nothing happens. The astronauts take about thirty minutes to land on the moon (I can imagine nudie fans back in the day became very impatient), and once they land they just wander around aimlessly. The film's nudity may have raised a few eyebrows back in the day, but its was extremely tame and dated just two years later. Viewed today, there's nothing shocking and its all rather innocent. "Nude on the Moon" is worth watching once, just to say you've seen it. However, don't go in with high or even moderate expectations. Its very dull. (3/10)
