No matter how superficially amusing the title or how appealing the animated characters (not very, to be honest), the fact remains that we are expected to empathise with flies. The animators even try to make maggots cute.
Fly Me to the Moon is the first animated feature made specifically for the 3-D format. If this were not the case, it would have gone straight to DVD. Everything else about it is as lazy and dull as the latest cheap Pixar knockoff.
Fly Me to the Moon is not a great movie. It's not even a good movie. It some ways, it's barely passable. Yet my litany of criticisms will fall on deaf ears - so long as those ears are attached to children roughly 5 to 10 years old.
Adults used to animation that runs on two tracks -- the upfront stuff for the tykes and a witty subtext to entertain big people -- may grow bored with the kid-leaning sensibility of Fly Me to the Moon.
