At the beginning of the movie, the far side of the moon is in daylight, and just before the Klaus and his entourage leave for Earth shortly thereafter, the sun is just setting. However, when the exploratory ship arrives on Earth, the moon is full - that is, the near side is fully lit. Since the length of a day on the moon is actually almost a month, it would take weeks for this change to occur, when the implied length of time in the film is at most a couple of days. See more »
I watched this at a Munich cinema (Munich is where Hitler actually started the Nazi movement) in original English version with a crowd of mostly Germans. The audience was laughing their way through the entire movie, with several long applauds.
I loved this movie for three reasons: the political mocking of the US, the CGI and the references to other movies. Some may find it a camp movie, but this did not distract from the storyline. The scrip hast enough depth to make you wish they had added another 20 minutes of footage.
The beginning and middle part were great, although I found the ending a bit anti-climactic. The ending does follow upon the outcome of events, unlike many Hollywood movies it doesn't have absurd twists.
Some of the acting was below standards. But it's a refreshing movie to see. It shows that a new era of independent movies has come about: Hollywood budgets no longer compete with original ideas. It will pose a problem to Hollywood (and America too), because people like myself are fed up with the same one-sided world-view we've been watching for decades now.
