Not the best of the Muppet movies but not the worst either, "Muppets From Space" is an enjoyable comedy that finally answers the age-old question, "Just what the heck is Gonzo, anyway?" Some of the older Muppets, like Piggy and Fozzie, take a back seat in this one while we get more of a spotlight on Rizzo and Pepe -- but Gonzo still steals the show in this flick. My biggest complaint about the movie itself has to be the music -- no new Muppet songs! All of the songs they sing are old rock n' roll, which is all well and good, but when I see the Muppets, I want to hear new music as good as "Rainbow Connection" and Together Again."
The great DVD makes up for the small inadequacies of the film, though. Unlike SOME Muppet DVDs, this disc has both fullscreen AND the far superior widescreen versions (are you listening, Disney?), plus a bevy of extras including deleted scenes, music videos and a fantastic commentary track. Not only is director Tim Hill joined by Kermit, Gonzo and Rizzo for the commentary, but they all appear as "shadows" at the bottom of the screen, not unlike an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000. It's a great technique, and I'd love to see it done more often (especially with movies like this), although I do wish that turning this feature on didn't disable the subtitles. I usually watch subtitles when I have a commentary on to compensate for the diminished volume of the movie itself.
All in all, probably the best Muppet DVD there is. Fans should love it.
