I've always liked this occasionally amusing attempt to duplicate the success of "Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines". In the USA this film was retitled "Those Fantastic Flying Fools." It's periodically shown on cable in a grainy, color-faded horrendously pan-and-scan version (the film is in Cinemascope, or its 1967 equivilant).

So I was overjoyed to discover an official widescreen DVD release. This feeling changed once I watched the movie. It is properly letterboxed, but that's the only good thing I have to say.

Problems? Let me count them:
1. it's apparently a PAL transfer and a clumsy one. The movements are jerky whenever someone crosses the screen or the camera pans, which is frequently;
2. The print is murky; it's almost always too dark;
3. the color fades in and out and rarely looks true;
4. the soundtrack is out-of-sync through most of the movie, making this British production look like a bad English-dubbed film;
5. even considering the time difference with a PAL-to-NTSC video transfer, the film runs no more than 108 mins. (103 mins. real time), which means there are at least 10 mins. missing from this version.

Stick with the pan-and-scan cable version (which runs 118 mins.) until someone does this one on video correctly! Wham!USA certainly didn't.

The title is a tipoff of what to expect, since Verne never wrote about a rocket to the moon. (The adventurers in "From the Earth to the Moon" were launched from a 900-foot long cannon.) This movie, like the title, has little to do with Verne... or good storytelling, for that matter. Adding insult to injury, as others have noted, the video transfer is lousy. Want Verne? Read a book. Don't waste your time or money on this movie.

The voices and the lips are not in sync at all picture quality is fair . Problem is I have looked for this movie for years and could never foind a copy so in my book a bad copy is better than no copy.

One of my favorite childhood movies. Except for the poor dub quality this is a great family movie. Just ignore the fact that the lips and the words don't quite match.
