Movie Reviews

Everything you'd ever want in a Muppet movie
Steven Swain | Rocky Mount, VA USA | 08/27/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

""The Great Muppet Caper" is not the definative Muppet film (check out "The Muppet Movie" [1979] for that distinction) but it is a very solid outing from Kermit and the gang. The celebrity performances and cameos (even Jim Henson, Muppet creator, shows up) are well-done, with just enough campiness to make them funny for kids, but just enough restraint to keep it interesting for adults. The bike riding scene in the park is first rate, as is the Esther Williams-style water dancing sequence with Miss Piggy as its star.In short, this British-influened slice of cinema is more sophisticated than the aforementioned "Muppet Movie" and less silly than the subsequent films. It's a great choice. Buy it without hesitation."

Great fun, great laughs, and great muppets

"I've only seen this movie on a recorded-off-TV format, but this is probably one of the funniest movies you can see (at least with Kermit the Frog in the starring role), and certainly the best Muppet movie, as far as I'm concerned.The movie begins with Kermit, Fozzie, and Gonzo in a balloon, floating high above the city, reading the credits as they roll. ("Kermit? What does B.S.C. stand for?" "I dunno..." and "Nobody really reads these do they?" "Well sure they do. They all have families.")Once the credits finish, the balloon plummets to the street, where the trio introduce the movie with a large song-and-dance number amidst a chaotic street scene, complete with a robbery on set!The rest of the movie is loads of laughs as Kermit and his friends travel to England for their newspaper to interview Lady Holiday (Diana Rigg). Their Muppet entourage grows when the three book their stay at the Happiness Hotel, a run-down England hotel occupied by a crew of lazy Muppets.Kermit, Fozzie, Gonzo, Miss Piggy, Animal, Dr. Teeth and the whole gang eventually team up to foil Lady Holiday's brother (Charles Grodin) and his three partners in crime from stealing the fabulous Baseball Diamond at the Mallory Gallery. It's pure, hilarious, and classic Muppet mayhem.Kiddos and adults one and all will most likely enjoy this movie, and you don't have to worry about any unclean humor whatsoever.I'm in my late teens and I still laugh at this movie. Definitely worth the money."
The Muppets are the funniest performers in the game!! | Warrensburg, MO | 05/21/1999

"Any movie that features the Muppet gang is going to be great, but the ones produced while Jim was still below the scenes are the best. This movie has so many wonderful moments -- the background nonsense during "Hey, a movie!", Gonzo's demonstration of how to hail a cab, Statler and Waldorf's heckling, the way people can't tell Kermit and Fozzy apart, and a hilarious cameo by Peter Falk...just to name a few. And it even has Charles Grodin before he became a boring late night talk show host. Terrific fun!"
