Time Out says

2 out of 5 stars
Coupling the men-on-a-mission antics of ‘Armageddon’ with the catch-all sci-fi pastiche of TV’s ‘Futurama’, ‘Space Chimps’ is an underwhelming slice of lowbrow CGI entertainment. When a hi-tech space probe veers off course on to an uncharted planet, a team of NASA chimpanzees are assigned to a retrieval mission. With Owen Wilson clearly unavailable, SNL alumnus Andy Samberg provides the voice for Ham, the laconic jokester forced to prove his worth. Despite a painfully lurid visual palette and some limp scripting, ‘Space Chimps’ at least succeeds as undemanding multiplex fare.
Written by Tom Huddleston
