The chimps are shown flipping switches and controlling the rocket during the launch, which would not happen as the rocket would be fully automated (as were the rockets that NASA used to launch chimpanzees in the 1950s). See more »

Horrible, horrible movie.
22 July 2008 | by motorhead85021See all my reviews

We just got back from seeing this movie, and I still can't believe how bad it actually was.

I think my daughter chuckled once. I simply looked on in horror. The plot was awful. The aliens looked like they were scooped up from the cutting room floor of an old Barbie movie. Even the awesome Patrick Warburton was hopeless in this movie. I don't know what he was doing here. He must've bought a new summer home. They had things in this movie, I think they were supposed to be jokes, simply awful.

Sample Dialog: Boy monkey: "Follow me." Girl monkey: "Roger that!" Boy monkey: "Who's Roger? Is it serious?"

This may have been the worst movie I've ever seen in my life. Stay far away, you have been warned.

p.s. The fact that Mr. Ebert gave this movie 3 stars is the final proof that it's time for that wonderful man to hang it up.
