  • After that first second we quit wondering: This is magic, after all, so who wants to know where Henson is? show more

  • Cute without being insipid, funny without being childish, The Muppet Movie contains enough magic to please all ages. show more

  • There’s a fair amount of Hollywood magic in the way director James Frawley and Henson’s Muppeteers stick Kermit and friends into scenarios in which he’s riding a bike, rowing a boat, and walking in cowboy boots. But the less showy effects always defined the Muppets. show more
