The Muppets are back in a new zany comedy, Muppets From Space. The Muppets embark on a hilarious extraterrestrial adventure in hopes of finding out about Gonzo's past, and discover that Gonzo's family members are aliens from a distant planet!
Gonzo then gets a message that his relatives are coming for a visit from outer space! But when word gets out on Miss Piggy's talk show, UFP Mania, that the friendly aliens are coming, a secret government agency led by K. Edgar Singer captures Gonzo and goes to great lengths to learn when his extra-terrestrial family will arrive.
Now only the Muppets, led by Kermit and Miss Piggy, can save Gonzo and make the world safe for a friendly alien invasion!
Gonzo has always wondered where he came from and what species he belongs to, to quote "Muppet Treasure Island" - "and a, whatever you are" and this movie seeks to answer that question at long last. Gonzo starts to have strange dreams and in them he is told that his family are trying to make contact with him, and thus starts his quest to answer back. Soon though, this all catches the eye of a secret government agency he and his friends will be fighting for their freedom and still try to keep in contact with the aliens.
There are plenty of fun moments in this movie, it has everything that you would expect from the Muppet gang and all the familiar faces are there as well as bringing in a few new ones. There is a great dance number at the end, "Celebration", a fun song that always has me looking to it. The plot is good and seeks to answer the question of where Gonzo is from and ultimately, where does he belong? You have the classic moments that you could expect, especially when we have all the Muppets living together in one house, chaos ensues.
This is another fun movie from a great cast of characters.
