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.
I have no doubt that Henson would have done this film differently. But, unfortunately, he isn't around anymore. However, his legacy isn't dead. People in his company are continuing to produce great stuff. This is highly evident by MUPPETS TONIGHT (I loved that show and never understood why it was taken off the air. All it is is an updated MUPPET SHOW), the continued popularity of SESAME STREET, the current Elmo craze, Muppetfest!, and new muppet feature films.
His vision is still alive. His muppets are still as wacky as ever. And the three post Henson muppet films still have crazy storylines that contain that certain element so "uniquely muppets." I must admit: MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL is one of my favorite films of all time. It had a very smooth feeling to it, a GREAT performance by Michael Cain and tons of hilarious gags, with Gonzo and Rizzo clearly standing out.
No, Gonzo may never be the same again after MUPPETS IN SPACE. And No, Kermit is not immune anymore to "trendy" lingo. The muppets may have changed a little, but they are still ultimately the same. Kermit and the gang can still make us laugh. Make us cry. Make us feel good. And make us cheer. The Muppets still carry the same magic and craziness that is so apparent in THE MUPPET SHOW. They are entertainment icons. And icons never die unless one allows them.
There are, and will always be, those Jim Henson fans who will seem to hardly, if not never, praise anything produced now by his company. Which is unfortunate because there is a lot of great stuff out there.Read more ›

This movie has some big shoes to fill. The original Muppet Movie, Muppets Take Manhattan, The Muppet Christmas Carol and the Muppet take on Treasure Island are classics in my mind. Read morePublished on Oct. 8 2003 by Stephen Cords
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,... Read morePublished on Sept. 4 2003 by Blake Petit
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
