Since I don't speak Arabic, and the film wasn't subtitled, you'll have to excuse me if I may have missed some of the subtler points about "Journey to the Moon". Nonetheless, I believe I've caught the gist of the thing. It's basically a remake of "Cat Women of the Moon" featuring entirely too much of the antics of famous comedian Ismail Yassin.
This guy makes Jerry Lewis (when he was teamed with Dean Martin) look positively dignified, although it gives you some idea of how exponentially more annoying Lewis would have been if he'd delivered his lines in Arabic. And if his entire shtick were to consist of doing something idiotic and then blubbering interminably about it. It took only about ten minutes before I wanted to see this man-child offed, preferably painfully.
Otherwise, the film is standard stuff: Astronauts go to the Moon, where they find a bevy of stunning young women who -- judging from their costumes -- while away the lonely hours playing tennis. (All their men seem to have been killed or horribly maimed in some silly old war.) The romantic lead falls in love with one of the moon-ladies, there's some complications and a robot, and then everyone goes back to the Earth.
Of some slight interest, if your hobby is obscure sci-fi flicks.
