    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. Expand

    There’s a fair amount of Hollywood magic in the way director James Frawley and Henson’s Muppeteers stick Kermit and friends into scenarios in which he’s riding a bike, rowing a boat, and walking in cowboy boots. But the less showy effects always defined the Muppets.

    After that first second we quit wondering: This is magic, after all, so who wants to know where Henson is?
  3. It's also very well written by Jerry Juhl and Jack Burns and directed by James Frawley ("Kid Blue," "The Big Bus") with a comic touch that never becomes facetious.
