Consensus: If Muppets from Space lacks the magic and wit of its cinematic predecessors, this pleasingly silly space romp is funny and clever enough to make for better-than-average family entertainment.

The movie has a clever premise that will appeal to all ages!

The new Muppets movie lacks the kind of excitement the first ones generated.

Plenty of jokes and mayhem to keep kids and parents amused.

Teletubbies may come and go, but Muppets are forever.

Owen Gleiberman
Entertainment Weekly

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!

A wild and funny tale.

Doesn't have the right awe and wonder!

Brian Orndorf

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.

The Muppets are still a pure delight to watch, and this is the best post-Henson movie they've produced.

No, no, no... We didn't need or want to know that Gonzo is an alien. I love Gonzo, but I love him as the weirdo of the group, the one who doesn't… More
