After failing to locate the legendary Stanley Kubrick, an unstable CIA agent must instead team up with a seedy rock band manager to develop the biggest con of all time-staging the moon landing.
The general who briefs Kidman is made up to look like General Jack D. Ripper from Dr. Strangelove to fit in with the movie's Kubrick motif.
It's not that I don't understand; it's that I don't give a fuck.
When Kidman is being given his initial brief, he is told that "In a few days' time we launch our 11th mission to the Moon". However Apollo 11 was not the 11th US Moon mission in that program, previously only Apollo 8 and Apollo 10 had gone to the Moon. Prior to that, the US had sent 6 Ranger lunar impact craft that were partly or fully successful, 5 Lunar Orbiter missions - all successful, and 7 Surveyor landers of which 5 landed successfully.
