The Muppet Movie

We salute Jim Henson’s birthday with the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, muppetational movie of all time! Kermit packs up a life in the swamp to head out on an outrageous cross country trip to pursue a showbiz life in Hollywood, picking up new felt-lined friends on his hysterically heartwarming, song-fueled, all-star-cameo-packed-journey. It’s more entertaining than humanly possible and will have you humming all day! Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection. The lovers, the dreamers, and me.

“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

“Demonstrates once again that there’s always room in movies for unbridled amiability when it’s governed by intelligence and wit.” – Vincent Canby, The New York Times
