Three brainy chimpanzees are sent on an intergalactic test flight by scientists too daft to realize the primates are actually smarter than they are. What starts as a simian spin on The Right Stuff becomes a monkey-brained space odyssey as the apes fight to save an alien world from a despot who looks like the love child of a Teletubby and the monster from Cloverfield. While candy-colored graphics should dazzle kids, Space Chimps has little draw for audiences spoiled by the Pixar-given knowledge that CGI can entertain — and not just stupefy — moviegoers of any age.
