Muppets From Space is 10/10

Solid film, think the Kermit x Miss Piggy plot should've been expanded upon

Fun to be had and my five year old loved it!

I thought this was lovely, a fun and chipper film about loneliness and found family. Could it be better, probably, was it still fun...of course it was! Cuz it's still fun to spend time with these puppets. There is a lot of fun to be had and my five year old loved it, thought it was funny and overall had a pleasant time. The digs at Independence Day and Shawshank Redemption are quite fun.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (9 ):

Like all Muppet movies, Muppets from Space has plenty of jokes to keep the parents happy while the kids are enjoying the story. There are sly references to just about every space movie classic, from The Day the Earth Stood Still to Independence Day and Men in Black (plus The Shawshank Redemption), and cameos from stars including Andie MacDowell, Ray Liotta, and David Arquette. The score includes music by James Brown, The Commodores and Sly and the Family Stone.
