THE MUPPET MOVIE tells the rags-to-riches tale of Kermit the Frog's leap to fame and fortune. It's Hollywood or bust when a small frog in a small swamp hears about a big audition in Tinsel Town. Against all odds, Kermit hits the road to the big time with only his bicycle and his dreams. Along the way, he meets a beautiful actress (Miss Piggy), a stand-up comedian (Fozzie Bear) and a whole troupe of talented friends who join Kermit as he heads West. It's sure to be a lights, camera, action-packed good time!

Now as an adult, I can report that this movie has grown with me. Now I can appreciate some of the underlying trepidation and melancholy that a child would never even notice. (How would you describe the tone of Gonzo's haunting desert song? And what do you suppose is the "voice that calls the young sailor," that possibly draws Kermit on to his own destiny? And why does the movie set fall apart in the final sequence of the film? These are not questions for a child to consider, let alone answer.)
But forget all that. It's there, but it doesn't really matter. What matters is that this film is beautiful, and if you hold the beauty of childhood within your heart -- at any age -- this movie can reach you.
It's such a beautiful movie. The soundtrack is amazing, by far my favorite. The plot is really silly and fun. There's so much more I could list, but then this review would be a novel.
Buy this movie, it's so worth it <3
I randomly watched the 'Muppet Christmas Carol' movie last Christmas, and ever since, I have been totally obsessed with the Muppets, and puppets in general. I bought the whole show, and am currently working on my movie collection, so I got this: the original Muppet Movie. And may I say, not only is this the single best Muppet movie, it ranks #1, right now, in my top 10 best movies of all time list. Everything you could possibly hope or look for is in this movie: its got the comedy, the drama, the weirdness, the imagination, and the best songs in a non-musical movie ever. I've met people who don't like the Muppets, and let me say this... those people are miserable. The Muppet movie is all about fun, happiness, and getting teary at the end when the rainbow comes in through the roof, 'cuz all you can think is: rainbows don't exist in movies anymore. Not real, genuine, non-corporate owned ones, anyway. Nowadays it's all blood 'n' guts 'n' nasty humour.
Seriously, watch this movie, and your whole perspective on life will change, and you'll become a happier person. It's that special Rainbow Connection.
As for the new one they're putting out; I hope for the best, even if it is Disney, and I hope that it renews people's interest in the Muppets.
