Editorial Reviews

When a $5 billion Space Agency probe disappears into an intergalactic wormhole, the agency recruits Ham III, grandson of the first chimpanzee in space, to help retrieve the wayward craft. But Ham is a free-spirited circus performer more interested in zero gravity high jinks than living up to his illustrious heritage. The simian slacker becomes a reluctant hero and learns the true meaning of courage as he and his crewmates, the plucky Lieutenant Luna and their by-the-book commander, Titan, risk everything in an effort to save the peaceful inhabitants of a distant planet from an evil dictator. The Right Stuff meets the wrong stuff in this witty, out-of-this-world adventure. State-of-the-art CGI animation from Vanguard Animation, makers of the avian charmer Valiant, take this tale of a reluctant astronaut into another dimension.

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

1. NASA loses probe in wormhole
2. To account for losing the billion dollar probe, they plan to send a billion dollar space craft after it, piloted by a team of chimps
3. To get full media coverage, they decide to send a celebrity chimp, and since Lance Bass wasn't available, they choose Ham III (voiced by Andy Samberg)
4. Ham III is the grandson of Ham I (I bet you figured that out on your own), the first chimp in space, III being currently employed as a simian cannonball with a circus.
5. Ham III, Lt. Luna (Cheryl Hines), and Commander Titan (Patrick Warburton) become space chimps
6. Lots of monkey business follows as the intrepid team go boldly where no chimp has gone before, to an inhabited planet ruled by cold-hearted Dictator Zartog (Jeff Daniels)
7. This is actually a much better movie than it sounds

This underrated cartoon is actually a lot funnier than you'd think. The animation won't make Pixar lose any sleep, but is pretty good anyway, and the humor will tickle your funny bone without ever once resorting to lowbrow potty jokes. [Note: Beware of the puns]

Although not in the class of Wall-E or Finding Nemo, this is one that can be enjoyed by the whole family.

Rated: 3.5 stars

Took my girls to see this movie over the summer - loved it. We're still using the lines "Permission to speak" "Permission Granted" "You're a dork". We had fun. It's a good family movie. I probably laughed more than they did!

A dad, a 17 year old, and a 12 year got a lot of laughs out of this show. No it's not high animation, it's not some fantastic film, it's just silly. This one is in the same vein as Kronk - The Emperor's New Clothes. The voices are rather good and well chosen. You have to check reality at the door, nothing in this is plausible. Just enjoy the ride. It's funny. And the number of laughs is why I rated Space Chimps so high.

Patrick Warburton is really a great choice for Titan the big dumb astronaut. Patrick's voice is recognizable. Kristin Chenoweth (West Wing and Pushing Dasies) is wonderfully annoying as a little glow head Killowatt. Andy Samberg (Current Saturday Night Live, the kid with the big curly hair) as the lead chimp is a well chosen voice. Stanley Tucci appears as a stupid senator. Keenan Thompson (Saturday Night Live) makes a cameo as the circus ringleader. And Jeff Daniels does a great job as the evil Zartog or Zartig.

The DVD is rated G. There is way more offensive and complex cartoons on daytime television. Oh yeah, some young children might miss the satire, or references to the space program and certain movies - but there's a ton of adults that miss that too. There's more than enough slapstick here to entertain most everyone. We all enjoyed this one a bunch.

I have to laugh when people write that the characters are bad role models. Um...HELLO. If your children are getting their role models from the television, your in trouble. Period.

This is a funny movie. Silly, crude at moments, and displays an array of emotions that my children understood. Everyone in our house laughed. It was also a great opportunity to teach our children about the space program and how it evolved.

If nothing else, the children adore Patrick Warburton (sp?). AKA Kronk.

It's true what they say: Stick with your opinion even if it isn't fashionable. And such is my feelings for Space Chimps. I thoroughly enjoyed this animated feature. It had everything I look for (intelligence, humor, an interesting plot, crisp visuals) in an animated feature without going overboard as is so often the temptation with this type of film.

Then, before coming online to share my own approval of the picture, I made the mistake of browsing what others (amateur critics especially) had to say about it. The fact is, not a whole lot of good! Now I'm not suggesting that their nay-saying swayed my opinion any, I am however rather surprised that mine was the popular consensus as I tour any and all animated features from Pixar's blush-worthy budgeted blockbusters to some of the quietest little releases to hit the States (Pinocchio 3000 and The Snurks for example) and feel Space Chimps offers a lot to love. Both the New York Times and Roger Ebert heaped praise upon it however. Is it possible that it demands a certain level of intelligence to fully appreciate this one? Who can say for sure?

The tale tells of a hi-tech earthen space probe that veers off course thanks to an unexpected riff in the space-time continuum (that's a worm hole to you and me). It ends up on an uncharted planet, the likes of which is too distant and uncharted to risk sending a crew of human beings for retrieval. The solution presents itself by looking at our own past (and how we used to do things); a team of NASA chimpanzees is assigned the retrieval mission.

Chimps, it turns out, can communicate with one another as clearly as we human beings can but to us their language appears little more than chirps squeaks and hand gestures.
