'Space Chimps' may bore the family

Performing circus chimp Ham III (voiced by Adam Samberg) is recruited by NASA to retrieve the missing Infinity Space Probe, which has been sucked into a wormhole.

Performing circus chimp Ham III (voiced by Adam Samberg) is recruited by NASA to retrieve the missing Infinity Space Probe, which has been sucked into a wormhole.

Ham joins professional astro-chimps Titan (Patrick Warburton), Luna (Cheryl Hines) and Comet (Zack Shada). Unfortunately, there are only three seats in the space shuttle, so technical genius Comet is forced to remain behind with Ham’s mentor, Houston (Carlos Alazraqui).

Emerging through the wormhole, Ham, Titan and Luna crash-land on the planet Malgor where megalomaniac Zartog (Jeff Daniels) is exploiting the Infinity Space Probe to enslave the rest of the population. The chimps join forces with loveable alien Kilowatt (Kristin Chenoweth) to outwit Zartog and restore peace. Too bad Space Chimps is a bore.
