Coupling the men-on-a-mission antics of 'Armageddon' with the catch-all sci-fi pastiche of TV's 'Futurama', 'Space Chimps' is an underwhelming slice of lowbrow CGI entertainment.

This banana-brained picture doesn't deliver. Parents will prefer shuttling everyone to a second showing of WALL-E.

I have to admit, there's a sort of dopey, cute, harmless charm to this movie. It actually doesn't stink.

Only a truly dreadful story could make 81 minutes seem like an eternity. And Space Chimps is just that leaden experience.

The animated action movie nevertheless delivers -- da-dum -- more fun than a barrel of monkeys.

There's probably not enough fuel beyond cute chimps in Candyland to achieve orbit for the kids.

When it comes to chimps and space, Stanley Kubrick pretty much covered the topic.

A bland tale.

The film's creators haven't learned the Pixar strategy of creating a resonant story as the foundation of a film. So we get a formulaic tale of a lazy nonconformist who learns to take his responsibilities seriously and saves the day.

Why would you take your kids to see Space Chimps, an uninspired animated feature about chimp astronauts, when you could take them instead to see Wall-E.

Journalism is all about having the courage to write the truth even if it will get you mocked by your relatives and co-workers, so here goes: Space Chimps is hilarious.

The CG animation is nothing special, but the characters are surprisingly fun and the story is full of enough puns, wordplay and slapstick to elicit laughs from across the age spectrum.

Worse are the chimps themselves. Their bodies are realistic in all the wrong ways, with grotesque appendages and unpleasantly textured fur, while the expressions on their unadorable mugs are entirely devoid of humanity.

Space Chimps is delightful from beginning to end: A goofy space opera.

Like a poorly designed videogame, it's as much a test of endurance of repetition as anything else.

One of those cartoons parents at least won't mind sitting through while little Miss or Mister Eight-and-younger gets his or her chuckles at the cute talking primates.

While candy-colored graphics should dazzle kids, Space Chimps has little draw for audiences spoiled by the Pixar-given knowledge that CGI can entertain -- and not just stupefy -- moviegoers of any age.

It'll keep the kids entertained for a while and give their parents a chuckle or two along the way.

As light as a banana souffle and about as substantial.

[It's] like they ran out of the $292.96 budget halfway through.

Space Chimps sucks a whole lot of talented people into a wormhole of lousy.
