Product description

Product description

In "Muppets From Space," Gonzo the Great begins finding unusual messages in his breakfast cereal and decides it's time to uncover his extraterrestrial origins. So Gonzo, his rat pal Rizzo, Kermit, Miss Piggy and the rest of the Muppet gang set out to track down Gonzo's long-lost family.

From Amazon.co.uk

Muppets from Space is the film that answers the immortal question: what species is Gonzo? Kermit the Frog's curly nosed friend feels alone in the world. When his breakfast cereal starts spelling out questions and he hears disembodied voices, Gonzo is convinced he must be from outer space, and his alien brothers are coming to earth. Of course, there are evil scientists (led by The Larry Saunders Show's Jeffrey Tambor) who kidnap Gonzo to learn his secrets ("What do you do with a nose like that?"). The usual brand of merriment from the gang is in good order, especially in the opening scene when the Muppets, who all live together in one house, begin their morning routine, bafflingly set to the lyrically inappropriate "Brick House" by The Commodores. It's not as memorable as earlier Muppet films, but nevertheless the joy and sly humour will warm most souls age 5 and up. Human cameos include Ray Liotta, Andie MacDowell, David Arquette, and F. Murray Abraham (as Noah, no less). --Doug Thomas

Format: DVD
Muppets From Space (not to be confused with the original Muppet Show's Pigs in Space) is one terrific movie. The Muppets redefine themselves on the cutting edge of entertainment, put together a film of nonstop action and hilarity, pull off a rather touching ending, impart an important lesson about life to children as well as adults, and really bring their own special magic to the viewing audience. Feature films permit the Muppet universe to expand in altogether new ways. For one thing, you get to see full-body shots of Muppets doing extraordinary things (rather than having to settle for the old above the waist only shots). More significantly, in relation to this movie, there are some pretty good special effects that really make the Muppet world seem more believable than ever. All of the Muppets look great, and some relatively newer characters are nothing short of hilarious (Pepe the Prawn in particular).
Muppets From Space centers around Gonzo, the little guy with the big nose and no real history. He's tired of being a one-of-a-kind creature and yearns to know where he came from. First things first, though. The film opens with the start of a new day in the Muppet house; everyone gets up out of bed and quickly gets down with their bad selves to the funky music of "Brick House." The Muppets have definitely found the funk, and this makes for a really happening, memorable soundtrack. Just when Gonzo is really down about being alone in the world, he receives a communication from outer space (via his alphabet-shaped breakfast cereal). Soon, he is convinced that he is an alien and, what is more, he claims his alien family is on its way to earth. A certain secret agency picks up signs of the aliens and comes after Gonzo, thinking he can tell them what the aliens want and where they will land.

This movie makes for a very, very funny time. Start laughing from the very first scene until the very end; whether you are 5, 25 or 55, just let Kermit, Miss Piggy and Gonzo unleash the very child within you.
Unforgettable cameos by the likes of Andie McDowell, Hollywood Hogan and Ray Liotta add humour and wit.
Do check it out!

Once you've finished getting down to the quality Soundtrack, you are treated to a solid and accessible Muppet movie, with pretty much every character you'd expect, including Pepe the King Prawn - my personal favourite!
Great opening sequence, giving Gonzo a quest to find out who he really is, and the Muppet House "Waking up" to the Commodores is way funky, and funny. Excellent Cameos and set pieces make this a cool film for ages 2 to whatever.

An absolutely fantastic new Muppet movie reveals the origins of Gonzo and answers our questions on the existence of life on other planets! There are new characters and there's lots and lots of fun - one for kids of all ages.
When Gonzo's breakfast cereal "speaks" to him the rest of the gang think he's gone seriously mad but it's just the beginning of another madcap Muppet adventure - one all the family will love to watch over and over - an adventure totally out of this world!
The Muppets have translated well to the DVD format and you even get the chance to view some Muppet out-takes. Hopefully more Muppet mayhem will be joining this movie on DVD soon.
Fabulous fun for all. But hey - don't take my word for it - get it and see for yourself!

The Muppet films you really should see are the Muppets Christmas Carol (one of the best films of any kind ever made in my opinion) and the Muppets Treasure Island which is excellent fun.

This one, Muppets from Space, begins well and has a reasonably good but slightly emotionally cliched ending (will the Great Gonzo having discovered he is not originally of this world choose to stay here with his friends? You can probably guess the answer).

There are also scenes meant to echo scenes from some famous films including Close Encounters of the Third Kind (or was it ET?) and the definitely not child film The Shawshank Redemption. Some people seem to find it clever and funny just to have Muppets act a similar scene to one in a well known film although to me it needs something more than that to be funny.

In between the plot involves human scientists kidnapping Gonzo for research. This part is not bad but not brilliantly original overall, and suffers from the problem with most other Muppet films I have seen that the Muppets work better when they let humans into their world rather than vice versa.

Muppet films and TV shows are lively, have strong characters and are visually interesting, but are less good on plot, except when they are able to use great stories already written by someone else (e.g. Charles Dickens & Robert Louis Stevenson) that can be envigorated by the Muppets; so if you have not already seen any of their films, see The Muppet Christmas Carol [DVD]and Muppet Treasure Island [DVD](or if you have already seen them once, see them again and you will still enjoy them).

Muppets from Space on the other hand has some interest, but is not a 'must see'.

Gonzo is distraught; he seems to be one of a kind. Then his breakfast cereal informs him that he is an alien. He is tracked down by government alien hunters and incarcerated.

It is up to the other moppets to rescue Gonzo from being disassembled by having his brains sucked out.

It is like an x-files script. All the standard characters and speeches. Lots of great actor cameos. I cannot get enough of this movie. I even like hearing the one-liners over again. There is lots of great music from the time era of the movie.

Dazz

I can't wait for my people to find me.
