Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: There's always room in movies for unbridled amiability when it's governed by intelligence and wit. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Jun 1, 2015

Fresh: Jim Henson, Muppet originator, and Frank Oz, creative consultant, have abandoned the successful format of their vidshow, and inserted their creations into a well-crafted combo of musical comedy and fantasy adventure. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Jolson sang, Barrymore spoke, Garbo laughed, and now Kermit the Frog rides a bicycle... If you can figure out how they were able to show Kermit pedaling across the screen, then you are less a romantic than I am: I prefer to believe he did it himself. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jun 1, 2015

Fresh: One of the funniest family films of the 1970s. – Richard Luck, Film4, Jun 1, 2015

The Ultimate Gem of The Muppets

The Muppet Movie is the best of the Muppet movies. It has a simple story, Kermit the Frog (Jim Henson) and the rest of the Muppets go to Hollywood to become rich and famous (and to make people happy). The characters are all great, the songs are perfect, and the celebrity cameos work really well (Steve Martin is definately a favorite). Buy The Muppet Movie, you'll not be disappointed!


The best kids movie ever! The soundtrack alone was outstanding.
