What with WALL-E knocking all other 3D-animated contenders off the planet, there's even less reason than usual to bother with a charmlessly garish CGI cartoon about, you guessed it, some chimps in space.
So, as our badly animated apes are sent to an alien planet for dull-as-ditchwater adventures with a population of little green men, the film doesn't just stoop in pursuit of a buck, it shimmies beneath the bar to record a new low.
Space Chimps tries to please both kids and parents with a queasy mix of rapid-fire, Looney Tunes-y slapstick and sly pop culture references, but the surprisingly flat animation and tired jokes keep it from ever leaving orbit.
The animation will dazzle undemanding tots, but the writers must have been paid peanuts for a script that flings around hit and (mostly) miss gags, ranging from fart funnies to Freudianism (!), like so much monkey mess.
