While promoting The Muppets (2011) in Germany, Kermit told ENERGY Berlin 103,4 that "with all due respect to Muppets from Space, um, you don't want that to be the last movie you ever do. You want to do a better one." See more »

Hey, you better get down there, Kerm.
Relax. No one is going anywhere, okay?
You see, I was contacted through my breakfast cereal, and then it was confirmed to me by the Cosmic Fish that I am definitely from outer space.
So you want to go now, or wait for the commercial?

Aside from a super-cool 70s R&B soundtrack, not much to recommend this one...
"Muppets From Space" is not a very good film, though at least it's not as boring as "The Muppets Take Manhattan"! I know this isn't a glowing endorsement...but the film is definitely among the least of the Muppet films.
The plot is all about Gonzo and how no one, including him, knows exactly WHAT he is or where he came from in the first place! The film has a really cute prologue with Noah and Gonzo...but after that, it's a rather inconsequential film about Gonzo being sought by some stupid (and very clichéd) government agency that thinks he's an alien. It's rather poorly written--with very few jokes and very little heart. Additionally, many of the familiar Muppets are absent and in their place are some very unappealing and poorly designed puppets (a few of which look really creepy). All in all, a film ONLY for die-hard Muppet fans--others would best see one of the GOOD Muppet films, such as "The Muppet Movie", "The Muppets" or "The Muppet Christmas Carol". You know it's bad when the best thing about this one is the cool 70s R&B soundtrack!
