...strikes virtually all of the wrong notes right from the get-go...

It's likely that few people will ever even notice the success it might have been or the unremarkable failure it turned out to be.

Nothing here works. At all.

October 29, 2008
Some days you just can't resist cartoon chimps mocking William Shatner's delivery.
Full Review| Original Score: 3/4
October 18, 2008
A film that, in a non-Pixar dominated reality, would be cleaning up at the box office. It's enough to make you laugh.

Space Chimp's narrative pendulum swings illustrate, in contrasting fashion, the care, depth and shading given to storylines by Pixar and creators of other top-shelf animated fare.
October 18, 2008
While it is not a transcendent flick, it will certainly provide necessary child pacification on a hot Saturday afternoon.

October 1, 2008
It's pretty much your run-of-the-mill CGI effort (and remember the days when the technology used to inspire 'ahhs and ohhhs?').

September 19, 2008
There is genuine sparkle in the voice work and more than a few jokes that really do hit the sweet spot.
September 19, 2008
A movie called Space Chimps ought to be cheap, crude and silly, and this computer-animated lark delivers on all fronts.

September 15, 2008
A sweet and harmless family film.
August 12, 2008
Cheap animation and a virtually non-existent plot pretty much destroy any semblance of potential this one-note premise has from the starting gates.

A real writer would have turned this in to a great animated action flick instead of animated ADD pabulum...

August 1, 2008
The film is pacy, full of humour rather than thrills and not too long. Not for connoisseurs of animation but fun for the young.

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.
August 1, 2008
My heartfelt advice is have mercy on your children and take them to see WALL-E instead.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 1, 2008
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.

It may look half-finished, but it's bright and silly and passes the time.
