Muppets from Space [DVD] [1999]

Muppet movies are perennial family favorites, and there is the usual large helping of good-natured fun in Tim Hill's Muppets From Space. Columbia TriStar has taken full advantage of the DVD medium with this disc, which has a great deal to recommend it. The anamorphic transfer of the film is as good as one could wish for, with the colorful visuals expected from a Muppet movie rendered gloriously. The Dolby Digital 5.1 audio track is also of high quality, and all the music and dialogue is crisp and clear. The bonus materials on the disc include both the original theatrical trailer and the teaser trailer, in addition to trailers for some other family films. Also included are some brief talent profiles, an enjoyable music video ("Shining Star" by the Dust Brothers featuring Jeymes), and an amusing selection of outtakes. By far the best extra feature is a live video commentary (similar in style to the feature on the Ghostbusters DVD) with director Hill and Gonzo, Rizzo and, briefly, Kermit. Though it offers absolutely no insight whatsoever, it is one of the funniest commentaries ever made for DVD, and in many ways the equal of the film itself in terms of sheer entertainment. In fact Columbia TriStar's disc is a triumph in every respect, and is probably essential for any fan of the Muppets.

    Synopsis


    Muppets from Space
    At long last, the secret of just what the Great Gonzo happens to be is revealed! As Gonzo and his friend Rizzo hit the road in search of their roots, Gonzo makes a shocking discovery: his parents are actually space aliens from another galaxy. After announcing this startling news on Miss Piggy's talk show (hey, if Ricki Lake and Rosie O'Donnell can do it, why not Miss Piggy?), Gonzo finds himself the subject of a dark and mysterious government conspiracy, led by the nefarious K. Edgar Singer (Jeffrey Tambor). In time, Gonzo is forced to choose: should he hop on board the UFO and sail off to live with his family, or stay on Earth with the friends he knows and loves? Muppets From Space once again pairs the late Jim Henson's creations with a stellar cast of human beings, including F. Murray Abraham, David Arquette, Ray Liotta, and Andie MacDowell. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      I watched a lot of Jim Hension studio stuff as a kid, and I'm thrilled to find the pieces as an adult. They really do have an intelligent, sweet-natured charm that is both appealing to adults and child-appropreate. We bought this to share with my five year old niece.

      I grew up watching the Muppets. Muppet Movies are the best and are a must have for many collectors. The DVD played smooth and is fun, family entertainment without the swearing!

      Was excited to see this one in the $5 movie bin. I loved it as a kid and it has been a blast sharing it with our children. They love it just as much as we did!
