Rating:
The Mouse on the Moon is a 1963 British comedy directed by Richard Lester and starring Margaret Rutherford, Bernard Cribbins, and Terry-Thomas. It is the sequel to the 1959 film The Mouse That Roared. When the tiny nation of Grand Fenwick experiences a hot water problem in Prime Minister Mountjoy's (Ron Moody) castle, he decides to ask the United States for a loan. He convinces the US that he will use the money to build a rocket to go to the moon. He asks for a half million dollars and is utterly delighted when he receives double that amount. In fear of being outdone, the Soviets then send Grand Fenwick a rocket, which is actually obsolete. Mountjoy's son Vincent (Cribbins) returns home and tells his father that he wants to become an astronaut. The lone scientist in Grand Fenwick then discovers that the only export of the nation, wine, also makes excellent rocket fuel. He and Vincent then decide to legitimately enter the race to the moon.moreless
