Rating:
G

Space Chimps is a 2008 computer animated film written and directed by Kirk De Micco. The action takes place on a distant planet where the descendants of the space traveling chimps are living a fun and colorful life. The story follows Ham III (Andy Samberg), who is the grandson of Ham, the first chimpanzee astronaut. A lot is expected from him due to his noble heritage, as Senator (Stanley Tucci) assigns him a dangerous mission in space. It seems that Zartog (Jeff Daniels), an evil despot, rules a peaceful planet with an iron fist, bringing terror to its inhabitants. With the help of his trustworthy and brave crew, including Lieutenant Luna (Cheryl Hines) and commander Titan (Patrick Warburton), and with some guidance from his mentor, Ringmaster (Kenan Thompson), they embark on a trip to accomplish the task and restore justice. Will the fearless and peace-loving chimps succeed in overthrowing the cruel dictator and free the planet from oppression?

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    The New York Times Neil Genzlinger

    If "Wall-E" pushes the boundaries of what can be done in an animated movie, Space Chimps proves that the old formula is still pretty effective when executed well.

    Los Angeles Times

    The film is suitable for all ages, but there's probably not enough fuel beyond cute chimps in Candyland to achieve orbit for the kids.

    Enjoyably slim family entertainment.
