this took me and my ocd too long to make due to letterboxd's faulty-ass "sort a-z" function but here it…
Muppets from Space
Space. It's not as deep as you think.
When Gonzo's breakfast cereal tells him that he's the descendant of aliens from another planet, his attempts at extraterrestrial communication get him kidnapped by a secret government agency, prompting the Muppets to spring into action. It's hard to believe Gonzo's story at first, but Kermit and friends soon find themselves on an epic journey into outer space filled with plenty of intergalactic misadventures.
A muppet good time!
Kind of a downer that there's not a single original song in this movie, plus very little Kermit and Fozzie. On the other hand, there's enough laughs and cameos to make this an enjoyable muppet film. The ending was pretty lame though.
I'm going to clarify something,I stopped this 58 minutes b/c I need sleep. Will add something more and a rating once I finish it. Of what I saw I'd give it a 3/5.
This may not be the best or most heart-warming of the Muppet movies but it's definitely one of the funniest.
Better than I remember, but not much better than WIZARD OF OZ. It too is mentioned in my Vulture list of 20 Best Muppet Movie Cameos.
For some reason this one sits really well with me. It was the only Muppets movie we owned (on VHS, of course) while I was growing up so undoubtedly I have nostalgic ties to it.
But really, Gonzo is one of the great Muppet characters (again, underrated) and the exploration of his existence is quite fun and heartfelt.
Sure, Hollywood Hogan is fucked and some of the gags fall flat but all in all, a great time is had by anyone watching this film.
The Muppets themselves are always fun to watch, but this film feels dreadfully tired and unfunny, opting for very basic choices for humor and performances and never really tries to take risks.
This was a fun wacky film. Aw, love the muppets sometimes when you want to be happy again and you just feel meh watching this film just makes you smile and have fun! I enjoyed it, glad Beaker gets a bigger role in this one and love all the other muppet characters.
Gonzo praticamente è Renato Zero.
God forbid this should be seen by anyone not already a devoted Muppets fan.
Die Muppets waren über zwei Jahrzehnte ein Garant für gute Unterhaltung. Die TV-Serie "Die Muppet Show" war eine herrlich-alberne Angelegenheit, die "Sesamstraße" erfreute Kinder (und Erwachsene) in aller Welt, die ersten drei Kinofilme waren allesamt sehenswert. Nach dem Tod des Muppet-Erfinders Jim Henson näherte man sich immer weiter Disney an, etwas, dass Henson noch selbst initiiert hatte. Die darauffolgenden zwei Spielfilme waren liebevolle Adaptionen von Charles Dickens "Weihnachtsgeschichte" und R.L. Stevensons "Die Schatzinsel". 1996 bis 1998 versuchte man es mit einer nur zwei Staffeln überdauernden Neuauflage der TV-Show, diesmal unter dem Titel "Muppets Tonight", die durchaus ihre Höhepunkte vorweisen konnte, beim Publikum aber eher durchfiel. "Muppets aus dem All" ist nun einerseits der bemühte Versuch, noch irgendwie aus "Muppets Tonight"…
Muppets in Manhattan was better but this still is good
A soul-searching Gonzo the Great learns that he may be an extraterrestrial, leading him to contact his alien brethren ....which attracts attention from a government Man in Black (Jeffrey Tambor) who wants to capture and dissect him. Of course, Gonzo's Muppet pals have to come to the rescue.
Much more slap-sticky than the recent "Muppets" film w/Amy Adams and Jason Segal, which is fine by me. This was good old fashioned Muppet mayhem the way I remember it from when I was a young'un. Fun stuff for kids and grown ups.
Kid picked this one from the library. It was pretty bad but I thought the big reveal at the end was fun. It dates itself hard.
It was good for a movie that features my non preferred type of Gonzo as the central plot point. On a serious note, it is the best Muppets movie during those awkward years, post-Jim Henson and pre-Jason Segal.
Why? I don't know.
If anyone is equally as sad as I and knows of any i've missed, let me…
