The Muppet Movie : 4 of 5
I didn't waste any time renting this movie after enjoying the music on the 25th Anniversary CD! I don't remember if I saw this in the theater (I think I did), but it was wonderful to see again, since I didn't remember hardly any of it! The plot is really fun, since it starts with Kermit's humble beginnings in the swamp, and follows him as he travels to Hollywood, meeting all of the other Muppets on the way. The songs are fun to watch, since they really make them big production numbers with all kinds of dialogue and action. I love the special effects - I still don't really know how they made Kermit ride the bike! My favorite scene is when Miss Piggy and Kermit have their intimate dinner, with Steve Martin as their waiter (there are tons of cameos from other stars, too). Animal gets some great scenes, too, and saves the day by eating Dr. Honeydew Bunson's growth pills and turning into a giant! Gonzo's song by the campfire is a beautiful moment, too - I think I like his song better than Rainbow Connection. Time to rent the next movie!
