Muppets From Space
After Gonzo receives messages from his breakfast cereal, he determines that he is an alien and tries to contact his alien brethren, but is captured by an overzealous secret government agency determined to prove the existence of extraterrestrial life. It’s up to Kermit and the gang to rescue Gonzo and help reunite him with his long-lost family.
You can’t go wrong with the Muppets! Still as charming as ever. I had the pleasure of revisiting my childhood and enjoying this flick at a local theatre filled with at least a hundred preschool and elementary age children. Their laughter was indicative that the humor of Miss Piggy and Kermit is timeless. Of course Miss Piggy uses her HI-YAH’s and Animal still has a penchant for pretty women but all in all it easily passes Dove’s standards for family fare. Aside from a few adult oriented jokes the kids will have a blast with the slapstick comedy of Jim Henson’s Muppets.
