Storyline

What if Apollo 11 never actually made it? What if, in reality, Stanley Kubrick secretly shot the famous images of the moon landing in a studio, working for the US administration? This is the premise of a totally plausible conspiracy theory that takes us to swinging sixties London, where a stubborn CIA agent will never find Kubrick but instead is forced to team up with a lousy manager of a seedy rock band to develop the biggest con of all time, in this riotous, high-tempo action-comedy. Written by Reece Davis

Trivia

The general who briefs Kidman is made up to look like General Jack D. Ripper from Dr. Strangelove to fit in with the movie's Kubrick motif. See more »

Goofs

When he flew to London, the plane he took was a two engine jet. Back in 69, there was no 2engine jet flying a transatlantic route. Would have to be a 4 engine back then. See more »

Quotes

Kidman: It sounds like a rather large operation. How are we going to keep this secret?
Colonel Dickford: We'll do what the Egyptians did.Bury the architects inside the pyramid.

Definitely underrated.
22 February 2016 | by altersaegeSee all my reviews

While 8 would imo be too much, 6 is definitely less than what this movie is worth. Come on people what's wrong with you? When I see some ratings here lately I wonder how can those film get a 8 and this a 6.

The acting here is fabulous, the humour is in a right balance of dementia and intelligence. There are nice gags, a nice kind of surrealism, it even touches some political themes, and it offers more or less all what you may want, fun, action, drama, sexiness. So, don't hesitate.

Anyway I think that IMDb should urgently revisit its politic of "not enough lines" for reviews. People do not necessarily have to write the holy bible to review each single film each single time. (hopefully now I have enough lines).
