As the lunar module lands on the moon, Aldrin is shown on the left side, which is the Command position, with Armstrong on the right side. This is the reverse of how they were in reality. Furthermore, Armstrong is shown clapping Aldrin on the arm and calls him "Commander". In the end credits all three Apollo XI astronauts are named Commander (a military rank none of the astronauts held -Collins and Aldrin were Air Force colonels). The upshot is that in this fictionalised version of Apollo XI, Aldrin commanded the mission and landed the craft, while Neil Armstrong still makes the historic first walk on the Moon. With the roles reversed, Buzz Aldrin had actually campaigned internally within Nasa for this to be how the mission took place; i.e. that with Armstrong being in command, it would be Aldrin to make the first exit through the door. The film's reorganisation of the positions and ranks may have been made at Aldrin's suggestion, since he was involved in the picture. See more »

"Fly Me To The Moon" has to be the worst animated film I've seen in a LONG TIME. That's saying something since I have taken my son to see every animated release for the last 4 years now. The story is to be generous...trite. The voice acting is atrocious, Too cute sounding. The humor is of the Romper Room variety. The animation is passable for a Nickolodeon type of cartoon but this is being released on the big screen not cable television.
It gets a 2 only because of it's OK 3-D visuals. Some of the scenes had a mildly stimulating image but We've seen much better in the past. I also question the insistence of the filmmakers to have characters fly away from the screen rather than into it in most of the scenes. While that is interesting at first it became tiresome after the 3rd or 4th time. It seemed to smack of indifference to me on the part of the creators.
I will say this though, It had a pretty cool soundtrack. And for the record my son wasn't too crazy about it either. Bad movie.
