En el pueblo de Minglanillas, un grupo de amigos observan por televisión la llegada del hombre a la Luna. Uno de ellos, Pepe Fernández, sostiene que con unos pocos duros y mucha dedicación ellos pueden hacer lo mismo. Tras discutir el tema, deciden ponerse manos a la obra. Toman prestados los terrenos de Don Gregorio Minglanillas, al que convencen con cuatro palabras, e instalan en ellos la base de la SANA. Raptan a Don Anselmo, un viejo profesor que afirma haber sido el que enseñó a von Braun, y con la ayuda de éste comienzan a hacer los planos del cohete. Tras finalizar la construcción de la nave y el entrenamiento del futuro astronauta a las duras condiciones del espacio exterior, finalmente se trasladan, simulando ser visitantes, a la base espacial de de la NASA en Fresnedillas, para ver si pueden hacer un puente de comunicación con su base en Minglanillas. Increíblemente, logran su propósito, y todo está ya preparado. Sólo falta el lanzamiento... Written by Miguel Ángel Díaz González

Good entertainment
27 December 2011 | by (Bilbao (Basque Country)) – See all my reviews

Watching this old movie with all this typical Spanish actors of the 50's, 60's and 70's with their surrealistic roles and characters means having a good time. Tony Leblanc is the protagonist and plays a usual role, so do the others, like Jose Luis Lopez Vázquez (who is great) or Rafael Alonso. The thing that makes this movie different from others is that the screenplay an the improvisations of the actors are really good and funny. But there is a problem, the kind of humor they are using is a typical Spanish or Mediterranean type that could be compared with Italian humor, and for a foreigner audience it could be a little bit strong or not comprehensible. Anyway, I would say that this movie is one of the funniest comedies in Spanish cinema. Really enjoyable. I recommend it to you.
