In 1989, the Americans and the Russians each have a two-person base on the moon. The Americans have had to keep replacing their astronaut teams because they quickly go crazy; they have been using only male astronauts on the unspoken assumption that this would avoid any possibility of impropriety. The Russians, as godless Communists, are under no such constraints, and their male-female team has remained well-adjusted. At the start of the film, a male and female American astronaut team is sent up to replace the sex-starved all-male team. The government insists on them being married first to preserve morality. Most of the story revolves around the eventual consummation of this marriage of convenience, and around their relationship with their Russian neighbors, who keep casually dropping by. Written by

The 1960's were known well for it's campy fun. The same year "Batman" and "Star Trek" debuted, Jerry Lewis comes out with this sci-fi comedy, "Way... Way Out". You got this bungling astronaut named Peter Lattimore (Jerry Lewis) and Eileen Forbes (Connie Stevens) who are assigned to replace two male astronauts because they are doing nothing but be at each other's throats.The longentivity up in the US Weather Station caused them to suffer "adult homesickness" . Peter and Eileen were the last chance of hope in space because the last couple split up. They go up into space, send the two male astronauts back home to Earth, and would later meet the Russian couple, who are not married. They visit the American couple, have a vodka party, and had the young girl sleep over after wards. After hearing a word from the General, Peter jumped the gun and takes out Igor (Dick Shawn). Realizing his error, he clears things with him. The competition seems to never end, my friend. A fun and simple movie, there are a few scenes that are not kid friendly, but not too bad though. 4 out of 5 stars
