Critic Reviews for Sesame Street Presents: Follow That Bird
By and large, the script by Tony Geiss and Judy Freudberg and the direction by Ken Kwapis don't strain for yuks; what they seek, and more often than not attain, is a tone of kindly kidding.
If you have kids, check this one out for nostalgia's sake and a chance for them to see the Children's Television Workshop in its younger years.
Good work from Sandra Bernhard, director Paul Bartel, and Hollywood favorites John Candy and Chevy Chase, as well as some fine moments with Kermit, the Cookie Monster, Ernie, Bert, Grover, and many of the other Muppets.
Can't go wrong with a film that features Snuffleupagus!
Great family adventure with favorite characters.

A movie I watched probably two million times as a child, I am now able to pass it on to my daughter. Hilarious performances from Dave Thomas and Joe Flaherty and a huge list of great cameos. This is one of the essential kid's movies.More
This was one of my absolute favorite movies when I was little and I still love it. I haven't seen it in a while so hopefully it'll still be great when I see it again. Yup...still awesome!More
Just like the Muppets Movies and Toy Story franchise, Follow The Bird is a good exemple of a cute and sentimental message of importance to have friends. Ken Kwapis made in is picture your best work until now.More
