Trivia

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 11 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 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. The film's reorganization of the positions and ranks may have been made at Aldrin's suggestion, since he was involved in the picture. See more »

Voices killed the animated fun
20 July 2011 | by jmuntmootcourtSee all my reviews

The animation in this wasn't too bad, and the story wasn't the most original concept (surprisingly sentient characters, in this case flies, piggybacking on an existing human story or adventure), but still entertaining enough for a kiddie/family cartoon movie.

What made this awful was the voice acting by the kids that voiced the three main characters. All of the others were passable, but dialogue between those three made me feel like I was sitting through a table-reading in a second grade classroom.

I don't know if it was bad coaching or directing, or the kids themselves (who sounded just fine in the live-action features I've seen featuring them). Regardless, this was one prime example of a studio being so obsessed with finding a voice that was even mildly recognizable that they passed on quality.

That awkward line-reading made it almost seem as though they made the rest of the movie and then found kids to read the words that had already been animated, or as if they just plugged in dialogue from a read-through when they auditioned. All entertainment would cease as soon as the main characters started talking, and we just sat and waited impatiently for them to finish awkwardly pushing out their lines.

Ugh. Good job pushing this piece of crap instead of funding 3 or 4 other productions that may have been worth watching.
