Movie Info

The search for the perfect astronaut provides the basis for this top-flight comedy. It all begins when a subject for studies at the Common cold Research Center is fired because he cannot catch a cold. He is then hired as an astronaut by the National Atomic Research Center. They want to send him to the moon so they can win a $280,000 prize. The trouble is, no one told him that he is going to the moon.

Critic Reviews for Man in the Moon

All Critics (1)

If it weren't so characteristic, so dismally like so much else in British comedy, it wouldn't be worth a line; but its quite re- markable unfunniness, and above all the way it huffs and puffs to get its jokes, visual or spoken.
