The Muppets embark on a hilarious extra-terrestrial adventure in hopes of finding out about Gonzo’s past, and discover that Gonzo’s family members are aliens from a distant planet! Gonzo then gets a message that his relatives are coming up for a visit…from outer space! But when word gets out on Miss Piggy’s talk show, UFO Mania, that the friendly aliens are coming, a secret government agency led by K. Edgar Singer (Jeffrey Tambor) captures Gonzo and goes to great lengths to learn when his extra-terrestrial family will arrive. Now only the Muppets, led by Kermit and Miss Piggy, can save Gonzo and make the world safe for a friendly alien invasion! MUPPETS FROM SPACE (featuring Andie MacDowell, Ray Liotta and David Arquette, among others) is a star-studded close encounter with far-out fun!
The film that answers the immortal question: what species is Gonzo? Kermit the Frog's curly-nosed friend feels alone in the world. When his breakfast cereal starts spelling out questions and he hears voices, Gonzo is convinced he must be from outer space, and his alien brothers are coming to earth. Of course, there are evil scientists (led by Jeffrey Tambor) who kidnap Gonzo to learn his secrets (like "What do you do with a nose like that?"). The usual brand of merriment from the gang is in good order, especially in the opening scene when the Muppets start the morning under one roof. It's not as memorable as earlier films, but nevertheless the joy and sly humor will warm most souls age 5 and up. Human cameos include Ray Liotta, Rob Schneider, Josh Charles, Andie MacDowell, David Arquette, and F. Murray Abraham (as Noah, no less). --Doug Thomas --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I first saw it when I was over at a friends apartment in college and a bunch of people wanted to watch it. I was initially confused as to why a bunch of 20-year-olds would want to watch a Muppet movie. I quickly found out why. This movie is hilarious! Why still being a movie for kids, the writers filled this movie with sophisticated humor that entertains adults as well.
I was happy to see that the focus was finally taken off Kermit. Don't get me wrong, he's still the original Muppet. But this movie proved who the real star of the crew is. The Shrimp. I forget his name, but my gosh is he hilarious. Watch as he delivers the best line in the movie, "You do that. And I will smack you. I will smack you like a bad bad donkey." The way it's done leaves people rolling.
All I can say is give this movie a chance. Even if you've forgotten about the Muppet movies or passed them off as kids films. You'll adore this one and quickly add it to your collection.
Muppets From Space centers around Gonzo, the little guy with the big nose and no real history. He's tired of being a one-of-a-kind creature and yearns to know where he came from. First things first, though. The film opens with the start of a new day in the Muppet house; everyone gets up out of bed and quickly gets down with their bad selves to the funky music of "Brick House." The Muppets have definitely found the funk, and this makes for a really happening, memorable soundtrack. Just when Gonzo is really down about being alone in the world, he receives a communication from outer space (via his alphabet-shaped breakfast cereal). Soon, he is convinced that he is an alien and, what is more, he claims his alien family is on its way to earth.Read more ›
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.

After being disappointed by Muppets Treasure Island (which had so much potential) we were reluctant to see this movie. What a pleasant surprise! Read morePublished on Dec 16 2003
There is not a Muppet move that I don't own, and this is by far one of (if not) the best. We watch it over and over again with our 15 month old. Read morePublished on March 22 2003 by Noodle
