75
Delightful from beginning to end.
60
The CG animation is nothing special, but the characters are surprisingly fun and the story is full of enough puns, wordplay and slapstick to elicit laughs from across the age spectrum.
42
The A.V. Club
Story remains Vanguard's weak point.
40
Variety
Enjoyably slim family entertainment.

The film is suitable for all ages, but there's probably not enough fuel beyond cute chimps in Candyland to achieve orbit for the kids.

Washington Post
Kids sense when a movie is being noisy and frantic just to keep them distracted; these apes are overcaffeinated.
25
While candy-colored graphics should dazzle kids, Space Chimps has little draw for audiences spoiled by the Pixar-given knowledge that CGI can entertain -- and not just stupefy -- moviegoers of any age.

Chicago Tribune
Sucks a whole lot of talented people into a wormhole of lousy. The film either needed to be a lot wittier to make up for the way it looks, or a lot better-looking to compensate for the funny it isn't.
25
Only a truly dreadful story could make 81 minutes seem like an eternity. And Space Chimps is just that leaden experience.
20
L.A. Weekly
The animation, incidentally, is half-a--ed, like they ran out of the $292.96 budget halfway through. Rip-off indeed.
