The Great Muppet Caper Reviews

The usual pleasures are all here, but the puppeteers seemed especially intent on giving themselves logistical challenges this time around.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Perhaps the shallowest of the three classic Muppet films... But even an imperfect Henson movie is bound to have quite a lot of charm.

Muppets in London on a retro musical robbery-romp.

That first film with the muppet crew had to be a success; this time it was more difficult. Nonetheless, the caper plot that Henson and company worked out manages to hold adult interest for quite a while.

During their late-70s heyday the Muppets won huge TV audiences with their corny puns and showbiz in-jokes, but stretched to feature length the formula loses some of its snap.

The songs are routine, but the inconsequential plot leaves plenty of time for engaging asides.

We don't care about some dumb diamond the size of a baseball, and as Muppet fans we're probably also indifferent to Henson's ambition to satirize old movie genres.

The movie contains several more cheery, Disneyesque songs than are necessary, but they are made tolerable by the presence of Kermit and Miss Piggy.

My least favorite Muppet movie. But it's still the Muppets, so it's worth a viewing.

Too much Miss Piggy. I always hated Miss Piggy. Kermit was too good for her.

Lacks the warm wit of the original movie, but hey, the old-school Muppets were a funny bunch of freaks!
