At long last, the secret of just what the Great Gonzo happens to be is revealed! As Gonzo and his friend Rizzo hit the road in search of their roots, Gonzo makes a shocking discovery: his parents are actually space aliens from another galaxy. After announcing this startling news on Miss Piggy's talk show (hey, if Ricki Lake and Rosie O'Donnell can do it, why not Miss Piggy?), Gonzo finds himself the subject of a dark and mysterious government conspiracy, led by the nefarious K.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The movie has a clever premise that will appeal to all ages!"
‑ Betsy Sherman, Boston Globe
"The new Muppets movie lacks the kind of excitement the first ones generated."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Plenty of jokes and mayhem to keep kids and parents amused."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Witty, warm-hearted!"
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"It's neither very witty nor a particularly original animatronic puppet adventure."
‑ Paula Nechak, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"Teletubbies may come and go, but Muppets are forever."
‑ Eleanor Ringel Gillespie, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"The Muppets were once devilish and sly, but this ploddingly whimsical musical caper, which uses too many '70s soul songs to signify its rainbow-demographic cred, is enough to make you want to see them get slapped around by the Teletubbies!"
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"A wild and funny tale."
‑ Michael Dequina,
""Fooll Preece-a Feetoore" says the Swedish Chef!"
‑ Karina Montgomery, Cinerina
"If Animal, always mercifully succinct, were doing this review, he might have written: 'Snore!'"
‑ Maria Garcia, Film Journal International
"Doesn't have the right awe and wonder!"
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"In terms of Jim Henson-style wonderment and overall cleverness, "Muppets from Space" comes up short. It's entertaining enough, but lacks the magic the Muppets are so skilled at summoning."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"The Muppets are still a pure delight to watch, and this is the best post-Henson movie they've produced."
‑ Jeffrey Overstreet, Looking Closer
"It's not the plot that's important with these things, it's the jokes, and that's the problem, what should be a real laugh-fest is only moderately amusing."
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
"Muppets from Space is a broad, silly, fairly charming piece!"
‑ Scott Renshaw, Scott Renshaw's Screening Room
