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

Smart and winning, this sixth Muppet feature film comes closest to recapturing the pure joy of the 1979 original!

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.

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 will satisfy the little kids, which may be all grown-ups really need in the dog days of summer -- a babysitter with air-conditioning.

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!
