When Ham III, the slacker grandson of NASA's legendary chimpanzee astronaut, is recruited to help retrieve a lost space probe, he has a close encounter of the hilarious kind as he teams up with the lovely Lieutenant Luna and their by-the-book commander, Titan. But when the ship crash-lands on a strange planet, the mismatched chimp crew must find a way to work together and save the mission without driving each another bananas!

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Only a truly dreadful story could make 81 minutes seem like an eternity. And Space Chimps is just that leaden experience.
Rotten: There's probably not enough fuel beyond cute chimps in Candyland to achieve orbit for the kids.
Rotten: A bland tale.
Rotten: When it comes to chimps and space, Stanley Kubrick pretty much covered the topic.
If you like space movies, this is a cute movie to see. I'm puzzled by all the bad reviews. My 5 and 7 year olds really enjoyed the movie. As an adult, it wasn't the most enjoyable story I've seen but I still liked it. I'm waiting for it to go on sale so I can buy it for my kids. I hope this gives a balanced view.
THIS MOVIE IS FUNNY!
My friend made me see it with her and i did not want to see it. But it is soooooo funny. Give it a chance because it sounds stupid but it really is funny. I saw it twice in theaters.
Cute and Funny
Many reviews have blasted this pic but I found it cute, funny, and entertaining. Neither the animation or story line were incredible, but neither were they as bad as they have been made out to be in other reviews. There were many morals to the story (don't let others opinions of you affect your self worth, what it means to be a hero...) and the characters were lovable and grew throughout the movie. The only major problem I had with this movie is the dialogue and soundtrack kept referring to the Chimps as monkeys- Chimps are of the Great Ape family, they are NOT monkeys- this is a mistake one of the writers, directors, producers, animators, or even a coffee boy who took a Middle School science class should have picked up on. Overall I would definitely recommend at least renting it.
