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

Goofs

When Kidman is being given his initial brief, he is told that "In a few days' time we launch our 11th mission to the Moon". However Apollo 11 was not the 11th US Moon mission in that program, previously only Apollo 8 and Apollo 10 had gone to the Moon. Prior to that, the US had sent 6 Ranger lunar impact craft that were partly or fully successful, 5 Lunar Orbiter missions - all successful, and 7 Surveyor landers of which 5 landed successfully.

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).
