In terms of Jim Henson-style wonderment and overall cleverness, "Muppets from Space" comes up short. It's entertaining enough, but lacks the magic the Muppets are so skilled at summoning.

The Muppets are still a pure delight to watch, and this is the best post-Henson movie they've produced.

The balance of character, plot, irreverent humor and innate decency that made some of the earlier Muppet movies so welcome is lost.

Muppets from Space proves that, without a solid script, a Muppet movie can be just as bad as any other dud.

The new Muppets movie lacks the kind of excitement the first ones generated.

Some of this is fun, some of it is extraneous, and by the end of Muppets From Space it's hard to tell the difference.

Thin in its ideas and surprises.

It's not the plot that's important with these things, it's the jokes, and that's the problem, what should be a real laugh-fest is only moderately amusing.

It's neither very witty nor a particularly original animatronic puppet adventure.

If Animal, always mercifully succinct, were doing this review, he might have written: 'Snore!'

All of the characters have been replaced by humorless pod creatures.

The Muppets were once devilish and sly, but this ploddingly whimsical musical caper, which uses too many '70s soul songs to signify its rainbow-demographic cred, is enough to make you want to see them get slapped around by the Teletubbies!

Muppets from Space is a broad, silly, fairly charming piece!

Some of the jokes might aim a bit too high for the youngsters, but don't worry--Pepe the Prawn in a ballerina outfit is just around the corner.
