True. But Clarke and Kubrick worked together on the script, and Clarke wrote the book concurrently with the movie being filmed. So both parties were aware of any liberties the other was taking.

Gotta say, I thoroughly enjoyed Moon and its minimalist, throwback approach to sci-fi. (Plus they used models for their FX! who uses models anymore?) Yes, some of the dialog was banal, and if the movie suffered from anything, it was that it wasn't creepy enough, and didn't go far enough in showing what a fubbed up situation in which the main character was stuck.
I also have to disagree with David's physics part of the review: that wasn't frost on the faceplate; it was pretty clear it was a thick coating of moondust.
