Review There are many concepts that work wonderfully in theory: communism, nuclear energy, monkeys in outer space. Sadly, just like their theoretical counterparts, very few successful practical examples exist. With a title like Space Chimps, one assumes a genial farce in which accident prone apes--opposable thumbs and all--cause chaos within a high-tech setting. Instead, Quest for Camelot scribe Kirk De Micco (here co-writing and directing) decides to go the blockbuster route. We want simian hijinks. Instead, we're offered a staid adventure with messages about courage, self-esteem, and living up to your potential...Space Chimps is a whiplash reminder of how CGI animation continues to cannibalize itself. Instead of finding new ways to employ the medium--as in the Shaw Bros.-inspired Kung Fu Panda, or the future-shock sweetness of WALL-E--this derivative big screen babysitter aims low and still manages to underachieve. In fact, this lax cartoon cavalcade avoids most of the format's flaws (stunt-voice casting, rampant pop culture riffing) and yet finds a way to be unoriginal...It consistently goes for the cheap laughs, mining way too many jokes out of puns, pratfalls, and the occasional reference to poop (these are apes, after all). The adventure is aimless and the feel-good message is mired in homogenized hokum. Extraterrestrial monkeys would appear to be an entertainment no-brainer. This movie took that maxim literally.
