    After that first second we quit wondering: This is magic, after all, so who wants to know where Henson is?

    Almost 35 years later and this film still holds up really well. There is not much a story here but there doesn’t need to be. The characters in this movie are likeable and have a lot of charm, which make the film entertaining. Plus, the songs are pretty good. It may be different from the show but I think fans of the Muppets will be happy to see their favorite characters on the big screen. If you are fan of the Muppets definitely check this out as this a film with a lot of heart and charm. Full Review »

    songs, chase scenes, and slapstick humor.... they're a lot of fun.
