Movie Reviews

A wonderful show

"Although the DVD hasn't been released yet, I have a copy of this wonderful tv special on video, so let me be the first to write a review.
This special is exactly what it promises to be: John Denver taking the entire muppet gang on a camping trip. You see them hiking, fishing and building a camp. John also takes Rowlf flying and tries to help him get rid of the hick-ups by doing acrobatic stunts. At the end of the day everyone gathers round the campfire to tell stories and sing songs.
At one point, Kermit's nephew Robin is feeling sad about being so small and then John reminds him how precious it is to be young and see the world with innocent eyes by singing "Catch Another Butterfly" to him. At the end of the day he sings Robin to sleep with the sweet lullaby "No One Like You".
Rocky Mountain Holiday features some well known traditional songs, as well as some Denver standards like "Poems, Prayers and Promises" and "Grandma's Feather Bed". There is also one song that John wrote especially for this occasion. It's called "Durango Mountain Caballero" and most Denver fans agree that it's one of the best he's ever written.
All in all, this DVD will undoubtedly prove to be money well spent, not only for Muppet fans and John Denver fans alike, but really for everyone who's able to look at the world with wonder and see the simple beauty that is always there for each and every one of us."
Very disappointed

"It's my fault for assuming the title was changed, but I thought going in that this was the Christmas Special I remembered seeing as a kid, and found out the hard way after opening the DVD. If you're a fan of John Denver's country music and the muppets, then add a star to this DVD. If you really wanted "John Denver & the Muppets: A Christmas Together," don't make the same mistake I did, and skip this one. Hopefully that will be released soon."
A little known Muppet "movie" deserving of attention

"John Denver and Jim Henson were good friends in real life and teamed up on several occasions (Muppet Show episode, John Denver and the Muppets Christmas Special, and Rocky Mtn. Holiday) to produce some good old fashioned family entertainment. In fact, according to Jim Henson's son, Brian, the story line for this movie stemmed from the episode of the Muppet Show that starred John Denver, in which he spends the entire show trying to convince the gang to go camping with him (note: this is according to the bonus features on the John Denver episode of the Muppet Show on DVD).Rocky Mtn. Holiday contains the typical Muppet one-liners (John: "The mosquitos aren't bad", Kermit: "Aren't bad?! They're delicious!") and Muppetisms (Fozzie, claiming to speak 'Bearish' had a miscommunication problem with a wild bear thanks to dialect issues - she speaks Grizzlie, he speaks Paddington!) that make Muppet productions enjoyable. Although this movie was produced in 1982, it is timeless thanks to the natural beauty of the scenery and the ageless Muppets themselves.For a tv movie that was produced in the early 80's, I am rather impressed with it's transfer to DVD. There are no special features, unless you count trailers for other Muppet movies or scene selection capabilities, BUT... the color is bright and the sound is well balanced. At a mere 47 minutes (thanks to tasteful selective editing out of the Rowlf / John flying scene), I am not sure this qualifies as a "movie" exactly, but it is a worthwhile purchase nonetheless, if only for nostalgia reasons. And, for those of you patiently (or impatiently?) waiting for the JD & Muppets Christmas to come out on DVD, you'll be pleased to know that the song "It's In Every One of Us" is also in THIS movie.Enjoy!"
I' m moving to Colorado!

"This Dvd is great. It has classic Denver songs and inspires with great shots of the mountain scenery and wildlife. It has something for everyone: the usual subtle adult humor the Muppets have a knack for, and the kids will love it too. Mine watch every day!"
