In terms of Jim Henson-style wonderment and overall cleverness, "Muppets from Space" comes up short. It's entertaining enough, but lacks the magic the Muppets are so skilled at summoning.

The Muppets are still a pure delight to watch, and this is the best post-Henson movie they've produced.

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 is a broad, silly, fairly charming piece!

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

The new Muppets movie lacks the kind of excitement the first ones generated.

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.

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.

Thin in its ideas and surprises.

This ain't Pigs in Space, but it's pretty good regardless.

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!

All of the characters have been replaced by humorless pod creatures.

The Muppets are on their best behavior here, meaning that they basically drive everyone around them nuts.

Kids will enjoy it, but young adults and adults will get more laughs out of it.

If Animal, always mercifully succinct, were doing this review, he might have written: 'Snore!'
