I have to admit, there's a sort of dopey, cute, harmless charm to this movie. It actually doesn't stink.
The animated action movie nevertheless delivers -- da-dum -- more fun than a barrel of monkeys.
The film's creators haven't learned the Pixar strategy of creating a resonant story as the foundation of a film. So we get a formulaic tale of a lazy nonconformist who learns to take his responsibilities seriously and saves the day.
Journalism is all about having the courage to write the truth even if it will get you mocked by your relatives and co-workers, so here goes: Space Chimps is hilarious.
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.
Space Chimps is delightful from beginning to end: A goofy space opera.
