Leave it to our favorite fuzzy freaks to breathe new life into Dickens' oft-told tale.

It all turns out to be quite touching as Muppet movies go.

The little green guy just isn't quite the same these days.

Neither drama nor comedy, it's safe stuff, and most un-Muppetlike. So much for great expectations.

The Muppet Christmas Carol isn't terrible, by any means. But it's resoundingly moderate, with merely passable songs by Paul Williams, and only occasional real laughter.

It's enough to make one wonder if Jim Henson would have wanted things to take this course.

Director Brian Henson, son of the late Jim Henson, has captured his father's vision and carries on the tradition better than anyone could have expected.

Like all the Muppet movies, this one is a musical, with original songs by Paul Williams (my favorite is the early chain-rattling duet by the Marley brothers). It could have done with a few more songs than it has.
