The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
|Based on a theater exit polling of 27 moviegoers:(This movie opened on a bad weekend so we weren't able to collect very many reviews.)
CHILDREN:They loved "Space Chimps" and their reviews count the most.
TEENS:There were only three teens and they loved it.
ADULTS:For this type of movie, these are decent reviews coming from parents. The males enjoyed it slightly less than the females but both seemed satisfied enough to make it a good family film.
Ham (Andy Samberg), the grandson of the first chimp in outer space, has been
happily eking out a living as a chimp cannonball in a third-rate circus when the Space
Agency makes him an offer he can't refuse. A wormhole has transported the Infinity
Space Probe into the farthest reaches of the universe. As a political PR stunt, Ham is
recruited to join a team of specially trained ape astronauts assigned to rescue the lost
His love of flashy acrobatics and aerial maneuvers make Ham a successful highflyer,
but his irreverent antics and goofball humor quickly alienate his professional astrochimp
colleagues. Ham spends most of his time tweaking the ship's pompous
commander, Titan (Patrick Warburton), or flirting with Luna (Cheryl Hines), his fetching
lieutenant, but as the only one immune to the effects of the wormhole, he is indispensable
to the mission.
After a crash landing on the planet Malgor, Titan is taken prisoner by Zartog (Jeff
Daniels), a megalomaniacal alien who has commandeered the Infinity and enslaved the
other Malgoreans. In exchange for her help navigating the dreaded Valley of Really Bad
Things to rescue their commander, Ham and Luna promise a desperate alien named
Kilowatt (Kristin Chenoweth) they will free her people.
Titan is about to be turned into a statue in Zartog's growing gallery—made up of
uncooperative minions dipped in molten lava and displayed as a reminder of his
omnipotence—when his companions stage a heroic rescue and retake their ship. As they
prepare for takeoff, Ham is reminded of his vow to Kilowatt and must decide whether to
return home or take a giant step for chimp-kind and live up to his grandfather's legacy.
