Product Description

Product Description

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 grew up watching Muppet Movies and even saw the "Muppet Christmas Carol." I've always liked the Muppets. However, let's face it. Someone says Muppets and you instinctivly think kid's movies. "Muppets in Space," was the exception.
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.

This was a great idea (maybe) on blueprint for a new Muppet movie, but I find the final product to be overdone. One can't help but feel that the new Muppet movie makers were trying too hard to keep up with the times. Jim Henson rolled in his grave when Kermit belches out " go on with your bad selves!" This was the first of all the Muppet movies to abandon the musical film genre. The only reason I don't complain about the absence of original music sung by the muppets is due to the bad taste that "treasure Island" and "christmas Carol" left in my mouth. What bothers me most is the gradual corrosion of Gonzos character. I think it started when he got his nose stuck in the elevator doors in "The Great Muppet Caper". He liked it. Now Gonzo is a masochist and "hopes it hurts" when he's being cosmically transported through the universe. What happened to the Gonzo that stared up at the night sky an whispered in awe, "You could get lost in a sky like that"? What happened to the Gonzo that was on his way to Bombay India to make his own movie? In this movie he only comes across as "weird" because he's trying to gain contact with his alien relatives. He used to be my favorite. The very fact that we find out where Gonzo came from cheapens his character to bits. Meanwhile, Kermits voice, done by Brian Henson of the late jim, is a pain in the ear. Pepe the Prawn and Rizzo and the rats save the film. I was looking forward to seeing some references if not appearances by the "Pigs in Space." Nope. Miss Piggy was her usual self stealing the show with her kung fu and smart remarks. I didn't appreciate the Dawsons Geek Cameos I did appreciate the Bean Bunny cameo from "the tale of the bunny picnic.Read more ›

I love the Muppets...have since I was a kid. I've seen four of the feature films, having yet to watch A Muppet Christmas Carol and Muppet Treasure Island (the idea of reacting famous fables was not that appealing). I recently watched Muppets From Space to see how a Muppet movie from 1999 stood up against the three movies from the early 80s (made when Jim Henson was still alive). Henson was an absolute genius...few would debate that and he is sorely missed. Muppets From Space should be categorized along with the aforementioned features because it retains its own unique Muppet story line. However, when up against these earlier films, it lacks something magical that we as Muppet fans were given before. Of course, ANY Muppet movie is better than NO Muppet movie and Muppets From Space is cute and entertaining in its own right...just not sharply satirical like the others. Nor is it a rousing musical like the others, replacing original Muppet numbers with an oldies sound track. This aspect is disappointing. Also disappointing is the absence (or near absence) of some our favorites, like the other members of Electric Mayhem (besides Animal), Rowlf, Scooter and others. Some new characters are fine, like Pepe the Prawn. Others, like Clifford the rastafarian catfish, are annoying and are distracting because of their obvious attempt to update the Muppet cast. Why fix what was never broke? The earlier movies satisfied kids and adults on equal levels. This time around, kids were clearly the target audience. In fairness though, there are a handful of clever jokes in the movie, reminiscent of the old days. It's too bad such moments are few and far between. Muppets From Space is worth the watch, but I hope film makers are able to make future Muppet projects and rediscover Henson's wonderful magic.

Jim Henson was a creative genius. What more can I say? No, MUPPETS FROM SPACE does not have the famed Gonzo as Gonzo the Great. Nor does it have the majesty of the previous five movies with Kermit & the gang.
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.
