The Muppets are back in a new zany comedy, Muppets from Space. The Muppets embark on a hilarious extraterrestrial adventure in hopes of finding out about Gonzo's past, and discover that Gonzo's family members are aliens from a distant planet! Gonzo then gets a message that his relatives are coming for a visit from outer space! But when word gets out on Miss Piggy's talk show, "UFOMania," that the friendly aliens are coming, a secret government agency let by K. Edgar Singer (Jeffrey Tambor) captures Gonzo and goes to great lengths to learn when his extra-terrestrial family will arrive. Now only the Muppets, led by Kermit and Miss Piggy, can save Gonzo and make the world safe for a friendly alien invasion! Muppets from Space (featuring Andie MacDowell, Ray Liotta and David Arquette, among others) is a star-studded close encounter with far-out fun!

Critics 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.

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

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Muppets from Space is classic Muppet fare with jokes to keep the parents happy and a fun story for kids, with the valuable theme of an outcast trying to find his place in the world. There are some mildly suspenseful moments and lots of comic action sequences in which some of the beloved Muppet creatures, particularly Gonzo, are in danger -- lightning hits, a kidnapping, pratfalls, a Miss Piggy "punch-out" -- all exaggerated and meant to be funny rather than scary.
