Critic Reviews

  1. 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.

    Who doesn't love an animated, anthropomorphized-chimpanzee-starring, sci-fi romantic comedy?
  3. 42
    Story remains Vanguard's weak point.
  4. Why would you take your kids to see Space Chimps, an uninspired animated feature about chimp astronauts, when you could take them instead to see "Wall-E"? And if they've already seen "Wall-E," you're really lowering the bar by venturing into this one.
  5. 40
    Enjoyably slim family entertainment.
  6. 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.
