No big action scenes, no adult humor that the kids don't understand, this is just a nice calm cartoon that you can watch with your kids before bedtime. It won't rev them up or get them to jump up and down. Thy might even like flys after watching this flick.
Postitives, The color palette of the movie, reminds me of a bygone era. The scenery is pleasant. Music is calm.
Parental guide, The flies use the word Crap a few times and one of the flies refers to the others as idiots.
Plot is slow but it does tell a good story about the space launch that put a man on the moon. It is not a Pixar or Disney high end animated feature that we are so programmed to expect in animation nowadays. It just a slow nicely done movie for young kids...it probably not for you if you are an adult and watching it without kids.
