YMMV / Fly Me to the Moon

  • Ass Pull: Shortly after the flies go into orbit. Something goes wrong inside the rocket's control panel thanks to a wire that had gotten loose. The flies fix it, using an olive to insert it back in without getting burned. All fine and good, except we're never shown where the olive came from.
  • Audience-Alienating Premise: Flies sneaking aboard the flight of Apollo 11. With that rather uninteresting synopsis coupled with the hideous character designs, it can be presumed most people avoided it.
  • Cliché Storm: Main character has a friend who's a glutton? Check. His other friend is a brainiac? Check. The three main protagonists get bullied by some other characters and feel like they want to do something big? Check. An elderly relative who's always had a dream but could never accomplish it? Check. A person from the elderly person's memories returns after years to help the protagonists? Check.
  • Fridge Horror: At the very beginning of the film, we see a normal, realistic dragonfly during the prologue, which shows a monkey being sent into space. The insect characters in the rest of the film, however, are anthropomorphic. Did the radiation caused by the rocket somehow mutate them?
  • Ugly Cute: The insect characters.
  • Uncanny Valley: The CGI is mediocre at best and repugnant at worst. Most of the characters don't resemble the insects they're supposed to be.
  • So Okay, It's Average: The film was quickly forgotten about, passed off as just another straight to DVD kid's film. It currently has a 4.6 on IDMB, 19% on Rotten Tomatoes, and a 36% on Metacritic, indicating nobody seems to care for it.
