User Review

Tough To Beat Gonzo & Rizzo

Rating: 8/10

Good special-effects, funny and likable characters and an interesting
story all made this 1999 'Muppets In Space' movie much better than I

This one featured more of Gonzo and Rizzo, my two favorite characters.
The movie, in fact, centers around Gonzo. Miss Piggy played a lesser
role than normal, which also pleased me.

A tiny bit too secular-liberal in parts but overall, not offensive and
definitely entertaining. It looks great and sounds good on DVD, too.

Some have said this was the best of the Muppet films and perhaps that's
true. I wouldn't argue.
