Moon Man


95 min minutes

A beautifully animated movie based on a children's book that miraculously doesn't suck. It's about the man in the moon grabbing hold of a comet's tail and crashing down to earth. The man in the moon looks more like a glowing, giant-headed, bald baby than a man, and says creepy E.T. knock-off lines like 'go home,' and makes a lot of weird grunting noises in a French accent. Worth it, though, for the scene about halfway through when he goes floating down a river of psychadelic lilypads while Louis Armstrong's version of "Moon River" plays in the background.
