Space Chimps

2

From visionary writer/director Kirk De Micco, the fluff-meister behind kiddie-fare like Casper's Scare School and Peter Cottontail: The Movie, comes this relentlessly giddy CG ‘toon about a Simian space shuttle crew led by reluctant hero Ham III (SNL rubberface Andy Samberg), a goofball known more for his banana peel gags than his navigational skills. But when an opportunistic senator (Stanley Tucci) sends Ham and his crew to search for life on a savage planet a wormhole away, the chimps get serious. Well, as serious as cartoon monkeys can get, anyway. Space Chimps tries to please both kids and parents with a queasy mix of rapid-fire, Looney Tunes-y slapstick and sly pop culture references, but the surprisingly flat animation and tired jokes keep it from ever leaving orbit.

Verdict:

NOVERDICT
