Muppets From Space

Critics Consensus

If Muppets from Space lacks the magic and wit of its cinematic predecessors, this pleasingly silly space romp is funny and clever enough to make for better-than-average family entertainment.

Movie Info

At long last, the secret of just what the Great Gonzo happens to be is revealed! As Gonzo and his friend Rizzo hit the road in search of their roots, Gonzo makes a shocking discovery: his parents are actually space aliens from another galaxy. After announcing this startling news on Miss Piggy's talk show (hey, if Ricki Lake and Rosie O'Donnell can do it, why not Miss Piggy?), Gonzo finds himself the subject of a dark and mysterious government conspiracy, led by the nefarious K. Edgar Singer (Jeffrey Tambor). In time, Gonzo is forced to choose: should he hop on board the UFO and sail off to live with his family, or stay on Earth with the friends he knows and loves? Muppets From Space once again pairs the late Jim Henson's creations with a stellar cast of human beings, including F. Murray Abraham, David Arquette, Ray Liotta, and Andie MacDowell. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Muppets From Space

    The Muppets move from classic literature to sci-fi adventure in Muppets From Space. The film follows Gonzo's search to find out who he is and where he comes from after he seemingly receives a secret message from beyond. The series returns to the cameo format and features appearance by David Arquette, Ray Liotta, Kathy Griffin, and Andie MacDowell, among others. However, a lot of the Muppet brand of humor is missing; breaking the fourth wall, impromptu musical numbers, etc. In fact, the music in the film is completely uncharacteristic of the Muppets, it's all retro pop music instead of original song and dance numbers. There's fun and laughs to be had in Muppets From Space, but it's not true to the Muppet formula of comedy or to the characters themselves.

    It wasn't the greatest muppet movie, but it still delivered - offering up laughs and funny celebrity guest spots.

    Muppets from Space isn't nearly as good as the other Muppet features, but with a few fun scenes and a lighthearted feel, it is still a cute movie. Kids, however, will be hoping for more space action. Overall Rating: 62

    I'm quite unsure as to what rating to give this movie, despite the fact that I quite enjoyed it. It's not the best Muppet movie I've seen, but in its own it's entertaining. I just don't think it's as funny as it should be, but the Muppets are at least charming enough to carry it to a certain point and not much more past that. The funniest scenes are with Miss Piggy (as is typical) but there are not enough scene with her to make the movie better. So overall, a charming and light movie that probably isn't as good as it should've been. But I can find worse movies to watch than this one.
