In just a few short words: FANTASTIC!!! I had high hopes for the movie, as I loved the original (have the soundtrack CD). I loved the original TV Show... Have always liked watching the new attempts at another muppet movie. Jim Henson has to be sitting up there with a MONSTER smile on his face, to see his beloved original characters come back to the modern movie screen in such a great way. The movie had a great balance of what made the original Muppet Movie so good. They had the one-liners that they KNEW they were in a movie. They made fun of themselves, them made fun of the typical antics of the movie. And a lot of places where you were ready for a predictable punchline or event... didn't happen. A lot of great cameos through out the movie. A lot of great references to the original movie. The new Muppet character fits right in. The storyline was great. Animal was awsome... "In Control...." Rainbow Connection was perferct.... Mananah to finish off the movie... Highly enjoyable. My 10yr laughed out loud many times. My 3yr old was also entertained... and this 38 year old jumped back in time and remember seeing the original the first time. Great Great Family Movie... worth the $50 it cost to go. (Yes for a 10:30am show... 2 Adult, 2 Kids, Popcorn, 1 Drink, and an Icee... $50)... but I am glad that I did. Can't wait for the BluRay to see the xtras.
