At their best, the Muppets are super-meta kid's musicals that aren't afraid of adult references and jokes to keep the whole family plugged in. Muppets from Space drops these elements in favor of era-sensitive humor (ie Shrek), and it comes off as lazy, forced, and downright pointless. Despite a decent premise (all Muppets live in one house, alien conspiracies), it's easily the worst Muppet film with little to no emotional pull and only a few jokes that actually hit....such a shame.

Anybody who likes the Muppets will hang their head in shame after seeing this. It's easily the worst of the theatrical Muppets movies. There were a few laughs, but I hated the premise. I also couldn't believe how the film managed to compile a soundtrack with some of the most annoying songs ever made. I'm just going to try and pretend that this doesn't exist.

In what probably may be the Muppets' weakest outing, Gonzo gets a serious identity crisis as he struggles to figure out WHAT exactly he is. The premise is not bad by any means, but the overall film is just not as memorable or zesty as the previous Muppet films. Although Gonzo is, as usual, a delight, the rest of the Muppets feel like shadows of their former selves in this movie. The story is not particularly memorable or inspired either, with a deus ex machina of an ending that all but undermines the momentum. (The "Celebration" scene with the spaceship is funny, unfortunately that's about it.) MUPPETS FROM SPACE is not a BAD movie by any means; it does have its occasional laughs, but overall it's a disappointing entry to the Muppet movies. It didn't help that Brian Henson didn't work on this film, either; newcomer Tim Hill clearly didn't have the right "vibe" for this one. Forgettable and not very inspired, MUPPETS FROM SPACE is, at best, mediocre.

A really fun muppets movie that is fun, cute, and silly at the same time. If you like the muppets then you should definitely see this movie.

Many laughs with typical muppet humor. Lacked some of the wit and plot of the other muppet movies. The lack of songs was a major flaw.

Has charm, quirky humor, and beloved characters, and pushes itself enough to be proclaimed a decent family flick though far below the mighty heights of the original trilogy.

Underrated, Muppets From Space is a funny, touching film that never takes itself too seriously. It has a silly premise and a distracting homage to '70s pop music, but the movie is so entertaining that it doesn't matter.

No, it certainly doesn't pack nearly the sort of wallop that the preceding films did but I still had a really good time watching it.

An average Muppets adventure - very short, kinda sweet - but nothing really happens, even if it's all about finding Gonzo's origins. Weird guest stars - Trambor, Schneider, Liotta, Arquette, MacDowell - and an odd jazz soundtrack, with very few singalong moments. There's still some funny moments though and Rizzo pretty much owns the film.

Not the best of the muppets movie, but still enjoyable.

This may not be the best or most heart-warming of the Muppet movies but it's definitely one of the funniest.

Why is Muppets from Space so hated? It has fantastic writing, humor, chemistry from our leading main Muppets, and it still holds up gratefully well. It's in my top 3 favorite Muppet movies.

Disappointing. The equivalent of watching paint dry...with Muppets.

Daft, but what did you expect from a Muppet movie? Yeah, its no Muppet Christmas Carol, so what? Great fun.

The Muppets at they best. When Gonzo's breakfast cereal tells him that he's the descendant of aliens from another planet, his attempts at extraterrestrial communication get him kidnapped by a secret government agency, prompting the Muppets to spring into action. This movie has action and drama at the end and this movie makes fun of all of that and that's what the muppest do.

Muppets From Space is easily my least favorite of the theatrical Muppet movies. Of course that's like saying your least favorite hobby. I still love it. The premise of making Gonzo the star is pleasant. The characters are their usual lovable selvesand scenes with Miss Piggy as a reporter, and Rizzo and Pepe's dialogues make it quite funny. Using Muppets Tonight characters was good as it took Muppets who had yet to become as famous as Kermit, Piggy, and Fozzie and giving them a chance. They are entertaining characters particuarly a affable mad scienist the villain has recruited to remove Gonzo's brain. The humor is good in most places particularly spy weapons Bunsen gives the Muppets to help them save Gonzo. However there are a couple of legitimate flaws which is something I couldn't say for the other movies. Gonzo being an alien isn't a great idea in my opinion as Gonzo was supposed to be his own creature, but luckily Muppet movies don't have a canon so whether or not he's an alien is debatable. There are no original songs and just playing 70's songs seems a bit lazier and takes away some creativity from the other Muppet movies. There is a bit of lower level humors (nose picking and such)that doesn't come up to the level of the original movies. However like the other movies it's still an enjoyable movie families should enjoy.
