Entertaining for young kids and for introducing them to the wonders of space.
This is quite plainly aimed at a very young audience and as such I think succeeds reasonably well. The story is imaginative and, though somewhat improbable, does make logical sense and all loose ends are eventually tied up. A few scientifically accurate astronomical details are included which should (hopefully) encourage youngsters towards furthering their knowledge of such wonders. Dialogue is clearly voiced and the humour is, I think, capable of being understood by most typical six or seven year olds. There was a family with three or four very young children sitting two rows behind me and the film seemed to hold their interest throughout. I think this is a worthy sequel to Space Chimps 1 (which I also think was under-appreciated) and deserves a higher rating than it is getting so far. Ideal for entertaining young kids (and for introducing them to a bit of science) and sufficiently wittily scripted for accompanying adults who haven't completely lost contact with their inner child.
