Just a really fun, warm, fuzzy movie featuring the loveable Muppets. While I prefer Muppets Take Manhattan myself, this is still an excellent showcase for the antics of Kermit, Piggy, Gonzo and the all the rest of the unforgettable characters.

The original and best of the Muppet movies. The Muppet Movie balances witty and sometimes corny humor with joyful cameos and a touch of unbridled optimism. The Muppets will eternally stand for hopefulness and togetherness, whether you're a child or an adult.

The move to film was an easy one, for the Muppets. Great movie.

I LOVE this movie. The music, the characters and the story. Maybe it's that I grew up with the muppets and continue to enjoy their individual characters. Who doesn't love a huge Animal coming out the roof of a buildling. I was shocked when I watched this movie with my 2nd grade class. 1st none of them had seen it or knew about this movie. There were not a class that was into movies, but they really did not seeem to enjoy this movie. Maybe it's a generation thing.....however, my kids will watch that muppets!!

Unfunny, and Painfully Slow

I'm very thankful that The Muppet Movie is not my first exposure to these characters. I've seen many of their movies before, as well as their TV show, so I know that these characters are capable of being funny. Had I seen The Muppet Movie first, however, I likely would've avoided the muppets like the plague. A truly terrible film in just about every respect, The Muppet Movie is a disaster, and I find it strange that other people don't see that.

In a nutshell, The Muppet Movie is about Kermit the Frog, who is convinced he may have a career in film, and goes on a crazy road trip to Hollywood, picking up new friends to come along. Things are further complicated, however, by a villainous man named Doc Hopper, who's intent on using Kermit to promote his fried-frog-leg business.

This is n...

Better then you probably remember

The Muppet Movie is a triumph in technical achievement and complexity in childrenís cinema. Itís easy to miss, especially in hindsight, but The Muppet Movie is surprisingly complex. and at the end the characters do fail, they try to create something and fail, but the ending is still happy because it doesnít matter if you ever bring your dreams to fruition or not, itís the pursuit of dreams that makes life worth living, Itís purpose that breaths character in to life. The Muppet Movie takes that surprisingly deep concept and makes it palatable to children as well as adults by adding awesome comedy and endearing Muppet characters to the mix. The movie is also enjoyably from its shocking technical achievements. The Muppets are only made of felt and plastic, but Jim Henson and company re...
