    This film is brilliant, and the Muppets are magical. The Rainbow Connection always hits me right in my heart. Jim Henson was a genius of Walt Disney proportions and the creations thought up by him and the people of his company will live on forever.

    The thing about the film is that it isn't necessarily hilarious, but sweet and touching. The main muppets and especially Kermit are so fully realized that you forget they aren't autonomous beings. Their performers seem to disappear and you believe in them. Kermit is such a sweet, gentle soul and he's a bit of an underdog whose belief in himself is always slightly shaky, but he always finds the strength to come through in the end.

    Although a lot of the singing voices were terrible, I enjoyed the tunes. And the cameos were surprising. Choosing this movie at random, I didn't really expect to see anyone apart from the muppets themselves. 7 years 9 months ago

    The Muppets are everything that's wonderful and pure about show biz. Not sure if I would have laughed out loud so much as an adult, but rewatching this with my young kids, we were in stitches during many parts. 3 weeks 6 days ago
