I have been a Muppets fan all my life and was not disappointed with "Muppets From Space"! I liked the story and thought Jeffrey Tambor was a hoot as the likeable villain. The other human cameos were hilarious, too. My one complaint is that we didn't see much of the Swedish Chef, Rowlf, Stadler and Waldorf, the Electric Mayhem, and others. Hopefully the next Muppet Movie will be better than ever!!!
the best of the muppet movies (by scumbagstyle)
this falls in my top ten movies of all time, and i know my films. this particular muppet piece transcends simple muppet silliness and commands a level of comedy reserved for an all human cast. easily the funniest and best thought out muppet movie of all time. watch for peppe the king prawn, my new favorite muppet. i used to think the Swedish chef was the best muppet, but man, he's hilarious. my favorites aren't usually comedies, but this was so well done that i can not imagine not including it in my collection. watch it through all the way, and frequently.gonzo is supposed to be the <more>
central character of the film, so if you like a good gonzo romp, enjoy. but i think the best part of the movie is the stuff that happens around the central story. thankfully, the miss piggie story is actually funny, as she is usually the muppet that kills muppet movies. and don't worry, fozzie and the Swedish chef have their moments, as do some of the lesser known muppets. do it up man.
Unbearably touching, almost to a fault (by theVHSrocks)
This is probably the saddest movie that I have ever seen. It deals in themes of identity and loneliness with more beautied and wrenching sincerity than I've ever seen in any other piece. The fact they are muppets make it all the more touching, because the muppets are so charmingly real. It's about Gonzo coming to terms with his place in the world, and Gonzo was always my favorite character and the one I identified with most, especially, this film just got me. Maybe it isn't the single greatest puppet film, but it is the most dramatic and emotional. Times, it was almost too much <more>
and watching the film was such a devastatingly sad experience. In fact, at times it almost seems like there is too much overarching poignancy and emotional core but it's probably just that it's so well-done that it's strikes chords so large. This isdefinitely different in tone than the other ones, but it's a fine andpowerful experience and a superb entry in Muppet Movie-dom.
To date, I think "Muppets From Space" has been the best of the Muppet films since the first two, "The Great Muppet Caper" and "The Muppet Movie". I believe it's the only one where they don't sing or maybe they sing very briefly which is a welcome change of pace. Jeffrey Tambor is hilarious in this movie, as is his sidekick bear. The shrimp is kind of annoying, but he gets some good lines every once in awhile. All the classic Muppets are used to great effect, as usual.Although some of the magic was lost after Jim Henson died, I prefer this film over his <more>
last theatrical Muppet feature, "Muppets Take Manhattan". "Muppets From Space" is the only post-Henson project they've done as yet that recaptures the zany magic of the early films and the TV show. A must-see for the Muppet-curious of all ages.
A lot of people complain about the fact that in Muppets from Space, the muppets do not do their own singing. Who cares? A lot of college friends and I love the muppets but all agree that no-one likes the singing that the movies usually put you through. It is one thing to have a musical number that demands music like The Electric Mayhem and it is totally another to drag through five minutes of having Kermit and Ms. Piggy singing "Love Led Us Here" reference to Muppet Treasure Island .The funk music they use suits the story well, and more importantly, it suits the main character <more>
who is obviously Gonzo.The humor is the great vaudeville-like humor that the muppets are known for having.The movie is phenomenal but if I had any complaints it would be how Rowlf, Scooter, and the Electric Mayhem don't get much screen time.This is the last time we got to see the muppets in action before the horrid evil control they got from Disney. Want proof Disney ruined the Muppets, watch Muppet Wizard of Oz.
Although I am an adult now, I still remember the Muppet Show and all the zany characters. It is good to see that the magic is still alive. Kids these day may not appreciate all the human energy and effort that go into a muppet presentation in today's techno computer age. My generation that grew up with Sesame Street knows better. This movie is great for kids of all ages. Well done Mr. Henson.
Tough To Beat Gonzo & Rizzo (by ccthemovieman-1)
Good special-effects, funny and likable characters and an interesting story all made this 1999 'Muppets In Space' movie much better than I anticipated.This one featured more of Gonzo and Rizzo, my two favorite characters. The movie, in fact, centers around Gonzo. Miss Piggy played a lesser role than normal, which also pleased me. A tiny bit too secular-liberal in parts but overall, not offensive and definitely entertaining. It looks great and sounds good on DVD, too.Some have said this was the best of the Muppet films and perhaps that's true. I wouldn't argue.
Platinum belt. With an unlimited line of credit. (by Djonn)
The Muppet franchise has mellowed a bit with age. MUPPETS FROM SPACE doesn't have the level of frenetic insanity that occasionally marked the original syndicated MUPPET SHOW, and it's neither as edgy as, say, the latest Mike Meyers movie nor as fast-paced as an Indiana Jones yarn.But even if it's a little on the laid-back side, its heart is very much in the right place. In some ways, this is a direct spiritual sequel to the original MUPPET MOVIE, focusing this time on Gonzo's origin story rather than Kermit's. Where the first film spoofed the "road" comedies and <more>
Westerns, this one spoofs CE3K and MiB but not, as the title might suggest, the Star Trek or Star Wars franchises .It's lighter on the zingy one-liners than MUPPET MOVIE, and longtime Muppet fans will probably be a bit frustrated at the soundtrack, which relies almost entirely on borrowed and guested songs rather than musical performances by the Muppets themselves. Note: if you peeked at the soundtrack album listings first, be advised that "I'm Going to Go Back There Someday" is NOT in the film. Should be, darnit, but isn't. But there's some inspired silliness involving lab rats and a wonderfully zany infiltration of a Secret Government Installation.All in all, what's here is a very warm and watchable comedy of a kind that's increasingly hard to find in theaters these days. And Miss Piggy's karate is still as dangerous as ever. I'm looking forward to the next Muppet film already. How about a spy spoof, guys? "My name is Frog, Kermit the Frog."
Got the classics, a good story... still lacking something! (by robert-710-767167)
I love the Kermit the Frog stories, movie, films, etc. And I figured that Muppets from Space would be great. And it was, it really was! I loved how the characters interacted, the intense story, the fact that they had to save their friend, they way they presented the conflict, etc.The thing that was lacking, I'm not sure. I felt the ending was a bit pushy. Like they were starting to rush to get it over with. I mean, Gonzo has a chance to get back to his parents, yet he chooses to stay with his friends. Which is nice, but I felt that it was a powerful moment that was lacking the right <more>
emotions.But anyway, I cannot diss a series of classics that everyone likes. Kermit the Frog was and always will be a favorite of mine. The Muppets are great!
