Lil Big Screen: Fly Me To the Moon

Lil Big Screen: Fly Me To The Moon

I remember my parents telling me where they were when Apollo 11 landed on the moon and Neil Armstrong uttered his famous, “That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Generations of children won't have the advantage of a first hand account. Luckily, Fly Me To The Moon is a 3D animated film that will educate kids for years to come as it tells the story of the lunar landing from a fly’s perspective. To see why you should take your child to see this flick,

Centered around a fly named Nat who dreams of being the first fly to land on the moon, the movie allows viewers to see the bug make it a reality after he and his best friends sneak into the astronauts' spacesuits and hitch a ride. Back on earth, Nat’s mother, voiced by Kelly Ripa, must overcome her fear of letting her son go in order to celebrate his achievement. Along the way, the flies are faced with a number of obstacles, including fly swatters and bug spray.

Though the movie’s story is familiar, and the subplots are all predictable to the adults in the audience, the animation is hard to beat. The film’s producers are billing it as the first of its kind and it is a sight to see. Unlike the movies of our youth, the images actually leave the screen – you can almost taste drops of orange juice poured from a container and an American flag literally waves in your face. If you're looking for an educational and entertaining family field trip, this flick fits the bill.
