In all, it was just too disjointed and too frenetic - all the while being predictable - to enjoy.

Kilowatt was entertaining and it looked like some thought was put in to her creation.

Whilst there's (virtually) no offensive language or crudeness, the gags almost solely depend on quick-fire references to other films and TV shows etc. For me, this gets tedious and is a very lazy way to write comedy IMO.

It won't win any awards, but in the name of entertaining the kids it was worthwhile.

This being said, I couldn't help but notice the much lower quality used for those ugly aliens (their colors, skin textures, character design, voices, etc), and their world (very empty, ugly colors too, etc).

I left the theater thinking that this was the biggest waste of time and money.

This story needed more lulls.

to greamamerican, you've completely confused me by saying the first 30 minutes was boring, but in the same post you say you left after 10 minutes.

The animation is so-so, the voices are decent, except some moments seemed a little stereotypical and cliché.

Literally every single scene was a cringe-worthy one, laden with contrivance, predictability, and cliché.

It also need less ("wink" "wink") inside, pretentious remarks by the writers, who tried too hard to get their PC agendas in here throughout.

Save your money.

Very slight animated feature that is pleasant enough, but may bore some more discriminating viewers.

What a disappointment; it was both a waste of money (and worse)time.

My three and a half year old enjoyed it just fine, it's not knocking Lightning McQueen or Buzz Lightyear of their pedestals...

With that said, "Space Chimps" should be enjoyable to the youngsters and some of the tongue-in-cheek humor will keep most hardened adults watching as well.

The whole story was as formulaic as one could get and pulled all the worn-out stops: the personality of the main character himself--who is pretty much a watered-down, unfunny, Kuzco wannabe; the unconvincing, charmless romance between two characters who supposedly clash at the start and fall in love through their shared adventure; the trite and forced internal conflict of the main character who tries to live up to his dead grandfather; the ridiculous and embarrassing villains; the attempts at sounding intelligent to fool the kids in the audience but failing to fool anyone older than maybe 10-years-old; and the triumphant--albeit completely uninspiring--end for the space chimps.

My son thought it was very boring and he usually loves action/adventure movies.

When I really think about it, this movie has a very intriguing concept to it.

Alas, my kid wanted to see it and it seemed entertaining.

The animation is ugly, the jokes are unfunny and uninspiring, the story lines are boring, everything in this movie is terrible!

give us a few lulls!

I enjoyed it and at the end of the day that's what you what from a film, to enjoy it 7/10

A rather entertaining 80-minute cartoon.

The bland/forced/clichéd humor, the clichéd characters, and just the annoying Zartog all make "Space Chimps" a forgettable flick that just makes me sad how a movie's potential could be wasted just by the lack of effort, whether it be in acting, directing, or (my guess) writing.

The jokes are completely uninspiring (Example: Roger that!

My kids liked it, but quite boring for the grown ups .

Don't waste your time!!!!

And there were enjoyable jokes--if you're not expecting real quality, that is--from our heroes, the aliens, and the villain.

"This may have been the worst movie I've ever seen in my life.

Easily one of the worst movies I've ever seen .

Although SOME bits were "almost" half-funny, most of the movie was portrayed through dull characters and not such a good storyline.

It is bright and colourful, the characters (humans, chimps and aliens) are all engaging, the alien world is imaginative, the action flows well, the dialogue is fun, and the story is easy to follow.

And honestly, it kinda bored me.

In fact we actually saw a few people walked out of the movie.

the worst movie iv ever seen .

Don't waste your time on this abomination of a movie.

But both kids loved the movie and I thought it was reasonably entertaining.

I found the story to be original, exciting, well paced, moving, and relevant to a number of the issues people face today.

It was funny, well written and very entertaining.

They pretty much enjoyed it, and that's all you should expect.

I'm not really sure what you people were looking for, but this movie was, at worst, fairly enjoyable.

It is bright and colloidal, the characters (humans, chimps and aliens) are all engaging, the alien world is imaginative, the action flows well, the Decalogue is fun, and the story is easy to follow.
