Editorial Reviews

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!

By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 27, 2004
Format: DVD
Muppets From Space (not to be confused with the original Muppet Show's Pigs in Space) is one terrific movie. The Muppets redefine themselves on the cutting edge of entertainment, put together a film of nonstop action and hilarity, pull off a rather touching ending, impart an important lesson about life to children as well as adults, and really bring their own special magic to the viewing audience. Feature films permit the Muppet universe to expand in altogether new ways. For one thing, you get to see full-body shots of Muppets doing extraordinary things (rather than having to settle for the old above the waist only shots). More significantly, in relation to this movie, there are some pretty good special effects that really make the Muppet world seem more believable than ever. All of the Muppets look great, and some relatively newer characters are nothing short of hilarious (Pepe the Prawn in particular).
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.

The Muppets, in their long span of existence, have gone from making movies about Muppets, novel adaptations with Muppets. Now, the Muppets seem perfectly co-existent with the world, while Gonzo alone feels truly out of place.

The story goes as such: Gonzo feels left out, even when his comrades are already the motley crew, so he searches for answers. Then, through numerous signals varying from his breakfast cereal to the cosmic fish he starts getting contact from space, but no one believes him. Thus, Gonzo, and inevitably all, are taken for many tumultuous turns in understanding the origins of Gonzo, er, whatever.

Now this is not one of the finer moppets movies, but this one has a more modern feel, and I believe Director Tim Hill had that kind of approach. With no real singing on their parts, a surprise since that was a forte of theirs, the soundtrack is replaced by funk/disco, which is amusingly woven in.

In addition, many old characters take a back seat, while some new ones, or lesser-known ones, take the charge. Overall, this film was definitely funny, and a must for Muppet lovers, but remember that this is a bit of a new direction, and go with the flow.

This is for the Blu-ray. I had seen this film once before and didn't like it. I felt originally that it lacked the warmth and charm the previous Muppet films possessed. But, being a completest and the fact that my wife really enjoyed the film, I decided I'd have to own it. I was not happy however that the DVD was cropped for Fullscreen, despite it being originally a Widescreen film. Thankfully, the Blu-ray release has things covered with a Widescreen release of the film finally making it's appearance.

After I got my movie, I popped it in and discovered that I enjoyed the film more this time, and that in fact it does have the warmth and charm normally associated with the Muppets. I won't say it is their best film, but everything you'd expect in a Muppet film is here. Fans of the Muppets will enjoy it for the most part, kids defiantly will.

The DVD that comes with the Blu-ray is in fact the original Fullscreen version. Not too many extras as was the case with the DVD, but the ones that are on it are fun and enjoyable.

If you want to enjoy the best of the Muppet films, I'd suggest with this one picking up Muppet Treasure Island - Kermit's 50th Anniversary Edition, The Muppet Christmas Carol - Kermit's 50th Anniversary Edition, and The Great Muppet Caper - Kermit's 50th Anniversary Edition.

Muppets From Space is a fun movie for kids and adults alike, although it does lean more towards the kiddies. The makers of this new Muppet film put in a lot of the nostalgia of the amazing Muppet movies of the seventies and early eighties. So Muppets From Space has that "seventies" feel and vibe throughout, which adult fans like me of The Muppet Movie, The Great Muppet Caper and The Muppets Take Manhattan will appreciate. While lacking orginal songs, the soundtrack is also all seventies and early eighties like "She's a Brick House" and "Celebrate."

The story is kind of Gonzo meets X-Files. Gonzo is receiving strange messages from his breakfast cereal. His housemates Rizzo the Rat and Pepe the King Prawn are less than sympathetic. Even Kermit seems to think his friend has gone off the deep end. Meanwhile, Miss Piggy is trying hard to land a news anchor job at a local TV station. Will the alien craze be her ticket to the big time? One person that does believe Gonzo is the diabolical head of a secret government agency in charge of seeking out life in outer space. When Gonzo goes to them for help, he finds himself in big trouble.

Muppets From Space does not equal the great films of the 80's. It doesn't have that magic, although it has its moments. Nevertheless, an enjoyable film worthy of Jim Henson's beloved creations.
