Synopsis

The lure of exploring space is not only enough to ignite the imagination and determination of mankind -- it has also sparked the lively interest of three adventurous houseflies (voices of Trevor Gagnon, Phillip Bolden and David Gore). Hitching a ride with the human astronauts (the real Buzz Aldrin voices his animated counter-part), the little insects travel aboard Apollo 11 on its historic voyage to the moon.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Fly Me to the Moon...

Squarely aimed at young audiences, this animation will only play in theaters with 3D capabilities. Content concerns are relatively minimal, but considering its young age appeal there are issues of which parents will want to be aware. A Grandfather character tells a joke about differentiating between male and female files by noticing which ones are on a beer can. He also talks of a relationship he had with a Russian woman who could “sure put away the vodka” and asks his grandson if he knows any “hotties.” A fictitious TV stations has the call sign “DCUP- TV”. Scenes of mild tension are included along with one “jump” moment when a dog lunges at the flies. Two male characters, one American and the other Russian, get into a physical altercation with punching and pushing until one is thrown against an object. Many characters fall into well-worn stereotypical categories—a young obese character eats obsessively and burbs, a young smart character wears spectacles, all Russian males are bad (their commander’s name is Poopchev), and females play a very secondary role to the male decision makers. One character exclaims “Lord of the flies” a few times. An ashtray full of cigarette butts is seen.
