Missile to the Moon - Three Riffer Edition

Please choose a format above.

More than a decade before Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and The Other Guy actually landed on the moon, Missile to the Moon made giant leaps for both man AND mankind with its daring portrayal of how the first lunar voyage might play out. 

It turned out to have gotten a lot of the details right.  Except that instead of a meticulously planned journey that took NASA countless man hours to achieve, the impromptu trip of Missile to the Moon takes place on a crazy old man's whim, and four of the five participants wander aboard the ship by accident. 

Also, where Missile to the Moon portrayed the moon as a dynamic backdrop for intrigue, love, betrayal, and deception, when our guys got to the moon, they sort of just looked around for a while, hit a golf ball or two, then got the hell back to Earth to try and catch Carson.  And the real moon also turned out not to be crawling with beauty queens, giant spiders and hideous rock men.  Just dust. 

As you can see, the real moon was kind of a bummer.  So instead of going there, why not just stock up on the Tang and Astronaut Ice Cream and hop aboard your very own Missile to the Moon with Mike, Kevin and Bill?
