Trivia

Ham was the name of the first chimp in space. He was launched from Cape Canaveral on January 31, 1961, and returned to Earth unharmed except for a bruised nose. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Ham III: [after finding out the space ship doesn't really work] We're nothing more than guinea pigs.
Titan: Actually the guinea pigs are on the Mar's mission.
[cut to the guinea pigs on Mars, running in wheels]

One of the worst films i've ever seen
22 February 2010 | by fabulousriceSee all my reviews

This film ranks among the worst films I have ever seen in my entire life. Not a single joke was funny, not a single image of the film nice to look at or worth remembering. The last minutes of the film, where the "bad guys" of the film are present the most, were almost unwatchable considering the awful designs of the creatures, and the absence of wit and ideas in the plot. I had the feeling I was watching a badly designed video game whose graphics are below average. At times watching it felt like torture for me and if I hadn't had a principle of never walking out on a film I would have left the theater. Simply put, it is one of the worst and ugliest films I have seen.
