The Dish is a wonderful little movie about a radio telescope in rural Australia that is enlisted by NASA to help broadcast the first moon landing. The people enlisted to help with the telescope run into some issues in the days leading up to the moon walk but they band together to solve those problems. The acting and setting were true to life and they did a great job of capturing the spirit of the ... read more

I wouldn't classify this movie as a comedy. Granted there are many, many funny, laugh-out-loud moments, but it is really a story of how a few, quiet, unlikely hero types made a risky decision that meant that those of us who are old enough (and had our noses glued to our tv screens) could witness what I would still call the event of our lifetime. It is a quiet little movie - no car chases, no gun f... read more

In the days before the July 19, 1969 space mission that marked humankind's first steps on the moon, NASA was working with a group of Australian technicians who had agreed to rig up a satellite interface. That the Aussies placed the satellite dish smack dab in the middle of an Australian sheep farm in the boondocks town of Parkes was just one of the reasons that NASA was concerned. Based on a true story, The Dish takes a smart, witty, comical look at the differing cultural attitudes between Australia and the U.S. while revisiting one of the greatest events in history.

My Top 150 Favorite Comedies (150 movies items)

"On July 19th, back in 1969, millions and millions of people around the world were able to watch on television the sight of man taking his very first steps on the moon. All due to a radio telescope that was located in a small town called Parkes, in New South Wales, Australia. More specifically, it was a satellite dish that was set right smack dab in the middle of a sheep farm. A setting that is so humblingly ironic, that it was a story that practically wrote itself. With a little bit of embellish"
