Storyline

In the Kennedy days, all the States buzz about the Apollo moon program, even the bugs. Grandpa fly Amos (Christopher Lloyd) keeps "inspiring" his grandson and two mates, a nerd and a glutton, with heroic stories. New they decide to get in on the action at Cape Canaveral via an astronaut's bread box. Grandpa also gets involved. There's also an evil Soviet Russian fly with which to deal. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

As the lunar module lands on the moon, Edwin Eugene "Buzz" Aldrin, Jr. is shown on the left side, which is the Command position, with Neil 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 calling him "Commander". In the end credits, all three Apollo 11 astronauts are named Commander (a military rank none of the astronauts held, Michael Collins and Aldrin were Air Force Colonels). The upshot is that, in this fictionalized version of Apollo 11, 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 campaigned internally within N.A.S.A. for this to be how the mission took place, that with Armstrong being in command, it would be Aldrin to make the first exit through the door. This movie's reorganization of the positions and ranks may have been made at Aldrin's suggestion, since he was involved in this movie. See more »

Goofs

When re-docking with the command module, the lunar module is shown docking with the engine side towards the command module instead of the docking side. The LEM is backwards. See more »

Fine
28 June 2011 | by leezuckettSee all my reviews

The movie is fine; and fun for kids who are in the bug stage. I never took cartoons at face value even as a kid and I am not seeing my daughter do it either. If the flies not being perfect are what you are worrying about as opposed to the idea that flies talk than this movie is not for you. I have never met a child who could not point out a fly or an ant, or a potato bug, etc...

As to the patriotism - a bit here and there doesn't hurt - we have lost our way a bit and maybe some good patriotism can help us find some pride in the good we have done, either way I doubt this movie will affect anyone all that much. Saying that note that patriotism is not nationalism, though I know the universities tell you that.
