Reviews
Mine: Kind of cute, but pretty much just for the kids.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Enjoyable showcase for Jim Henson's irresistible characters, charting Kermit's odyssey from a Georgia swamp to Hollywood. Unnecessary movie-star cameos and pedestrian music score can't dim Muppets' appeal in their first feature film. Trimmed from 97m. after initial release.

Chris and Leonard Maltin are WAY too hard on this AMAZING movie!!! Who doesn't love the Muppets?! I think the cameos are really fun and I appreciate them now that I recognize the actors. (When I was little, I just loved the Muppets.) There are songs you can sing along to and the movie is sweet and funny. This is a classic.
