Space Chimps

Overall B

For Human Beings becoming an astronaut may be a privilege, but it feels more like conscription for Ham III (voice of Andy Samberg), one of NASA's chimpanzees. So it is with reluctance that the little primate embarks with his crew (voices of Cheryl Hines and Patrick Warburton) on a dangerous mission to retrieve a lost space probe.

Why is Space Chimps rated G? Space Chimps is rated G by the MPAA

Despite their professional careers in the space industry, these chimps resort to name calling, veiled sexual comments, occasional bathroom humor and the use of terms of Deity. One character accuses an alien of being drunk. Moments of peril include characters being chased through a cave (one is eaten), attacked by giant aliens and shot at with barbs (one character is hit). Characters also engage in other risky behavior. Some aliens are frozen in a lava-like liquid. Animated characters include stereotypical depictions.
