Space Chimps


“Space Chimps” is a comedy adventure about two NASA chimps that are sent to a galaxy far, far away. One chimp has ‘The Right Stuff,’ and the other, a good natured goofball, has ‘The Wrong Stuff.’ The two chimps find themselves on a strange, uncharted planet, where they embark on a fantastical journey to save its inhabitants from a tyrannical leader.

Dove Review

This movie has more great lines than a wrinkled face. This film is genuinely funny; an outer space adventure that will appeal to family members of all ages. Kids will delight in the high action and fascinating characters.

The animation is vivid and colorful. The movie has positive themes about being your own person (chimp?), and overcoming your fears. The chimps come up with clever quips like, “It’s so easy a human could do it,” and “He’s a chimp off the old block”. Our staff laughed at the same parts – a good omen for this film. Enjoy “Space Chimps!” They’re more fun than a barrel of…well, you know.
