Format: DVD
Titan: Are you in aluminum clothes?
Ham III: Yes.
Titan: Are you in a rocket?
Ham III: Yes
Titan: In outer space?
Ham III: Yes.
Titan: Are you David Bowie?
Ham III: Uh... no.

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!

I'm not good at 'Writing Reviews' BUT, i can tell you that this movie is great, if you want to watch it with your kids of you just like Cartoon Movies like i do, this movie is Great.. I'm Glad they made a 2nd Part, im gonna buy it when i get done writting here..

ABOUT THE MOVIE:
It's about 3 chimps that are sent into 'outer space' to look for a planet that contains life. When they are about to land on a planet, turns out the 2 chimps in charge are 'passed out' and wont wake up to land the Space-ship, so it is then up to the more 'imature' chimp to save them from sertain death.. When he lands the ship, without thinking he steps out the ship, not aware of the dangers.. The planet has 'Living beings' that look nothing like we do, and are no friendly.. They capture the chimps but the chimps fool the creature's "Lord" and escape. After they get rid of that mean leader, the inteligent living creatures help them build a ship to get back to Earth.. Meanwhile in Earth, NASA waits for the chimps to return, but then when the ship returns home they discover the ship is empty so the Mayor (i think) cancel's the program (send chimps to find new world).. But the 3 chimps do make it back home, and with the 3 chimp's successful return, NASA (and the Mayor) suddently decide that instead of canceling the program, there gonna send the chimps back to the planet to make sure that that the chimps really did discover other living beings in that planet.. :D

I CAN KEEP ON TELLING YOU MORE ABOUT THE MOVIE BUT IT ONLY GETS BETTER AND BETTER, BUY or RENT THE MOVIE, YOU WONT BE DISSAPPOINTED I PROMISE.. Part 2 IS THE CONTINUATION OF THIS GREAT ADVENTURE, I CANT WAIT TO SEE IT.. :)

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.

It's a fun little movie. I first watched it with my 4-year-old nephew, and he loved it. In school, we can only show G rated movies, and my sixth graders also liked it. it's colorful, funny, adventurous. The only thing I don't like about it is Kilowatt's voice (I wish it was toned down a bit).

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.
