Movie Info

L. Frank Baum's enduring fantasy story gets a new and very funny spin in this made-for-TV comedy.

When a tornado makes its way through the trailer park Dorothy and Em call home, the young woman is spirited off to a magical land known as Oz, where she accidentally kills the most wicked witch in the land.

Raucous Muppet spoof of a classic. Tweens and up.

It's not on a par with the Muppet movie madness of old, but it's darn close.

A disastrous failure.

We're a long way from the creative energy, heart, and charm of Henson's Muppet movies, even though I'm not ready for the Henson Company to stop trying.

When you dig down and actually find (and watch) the new Muppet material, some of the magic is still there.

Something's gone horribly wrong at Muppet Central, and it's high time somebody fix it.

Audience Reviews for The Muppets' Wizard of Oz

A disapointment, really wanted to like this but its so flat and a huge anti climax :(

Dont get me wrong there are all the usual Muppets and afew nice touches but this really could of been done better. The tunes are uninspired and the look is poor and obviously done on weak looking sets with some poor bluescreen but the costumes are good and the feel is pure Muppets, I just feel they could of gone to town abit more with locations and human casting.

It has some good gags and some funny in jokes in it. Loved the bit with Quentin Tarantino and the 'Are you related to Frank Oz'? bits but hated Ashanti being in it. It?s the Muppets and I love them but it?s not the same as it was.
