Muppets from Space

Muppets from Space

Tim Hill (1999)

U Certificate


Our Score
Although more earthbound than the title suggests, this is one of the better Muppet movies, with a relatively coherent storyline and gags that achieve a high chuckle factor. Nasally challenged Gonzo believes his long-lost family are aliens and that they're coming to take him home. Aspiring TV reporter Miss Piggy and assorted government agents, led by Jeffrey Tambor, want to abduct him for their own ends. Movies from Close Encounters to The Shawshank Redemption are wickedly parodied and guest stars F Murray Abraham, Ray Liotta and Andie MacDowell seem to be having a great time.


Gonzo hits the road with pal Rizzo in tow and goes in search of his roots - only to make the amazing discovery that his parents belonged to a race of aliens. He then has to choose whether to board a UFO and return to his family, or stay with the friends he knows and loves. Family comedy, with F Murray Abraham, David Arquette, Ray Liotta, Andie MacDowell and Rob Schneider alongside the puppets.
