Audience Reviews for The Mouse on the Moon


No Peter Sellers in this sequel to The Mouse That Roared so they're already fighting an uphill battle, but still managing to produce a pleasing return to the Duchy of Grand Fenwick. This time the 5x3 mile principality enters the space race with foreign aid money from the United States, procured by the crooked Prime Minister wonderfully played by Ron Moody who intends to use the funds to install indoor plumbing in the royal castle! But his starry-eyed son and the head scientist have other plans for the rocket donated by the Soviet Union, who have to appear equal to the Americans in generosity. Playful political humor satirizes the superpowers' preoccupation to conquer space, and this English production enjoys poking fun at it's own country's impotence in the matter. There's a completely useless romantic subplot and the sight gags dry up after an hour, but overall the film achieves successful reentry.
