Muppets from Space was 1999's attempt to tell Gonzo's extraterrestrial origin and it's a pretty fun flick. The Muppets are all living under the same roof and grooving to funk hits when speciesless Gonzo gets a message from the stars. It happens. Or could it be in his head? Meanwhile, Miss Piggy hopes to become a news anchor. This could be her big scoop. The usual Muppets formula is used, with plenty of guest-star cameos and a strong villain played by Jeffrey Tambor (who nevertheless gets his spotlight stolen by his bear sidekick - he's the best thing about this movie). As far as musical numbers go, it's cover band material or action put to soundtrack. While the focus is strongly on Gonzo and Rizzo (a good pairing, as always), the other Muppets get some fun stuff to do as well. A fun afternoon's amusement, with some foam rubber heart.
Sadly not much takes place in space.
