Fly Me to the Moon Review: The Best Date Movie of the Summer

Scarlett Johansson and Channing Tatum bring stellar chemistry to a cheery rom-com with just the right dose of patriotism. Fly Me to the Moon will have couples and conspiracy buffs alike swooning in surprise agreement over the best date movie of early summer. A better than expected script and the winsome leads add big smiles to a fun retelling of America’s greatest technological achievement. Director Greg Berlanti deserves a lion’s share of credit for skillfully intercutting newsreels of a divided time. He frames the heroes of the Apollo space program against the darkness of the Vietnam War, political assassinations, and social unrest. The moon landing reminded a pessimistic country of what was possible when our best and brightest were given an opportunity for greatness.
