Movie Info

Elmo loves his fuzzy, well-worn blue blanket better than anything in the whole world. In fact, they are inseparable...a perfect team. Elmo would never let anything happen to it-until a tug-of-war with his friend Zoe sends his beloved blanket into a faraway land and Elmo in hot pursuit. Facing life without his cherished blanket, Elmo summons all of his courage and determination and sets off on an action-packed rescue mission that plunges him into Grouchland-a place full of grouchy creatures, stinky garbage and the villainous Huxley. Elmo also learns an important lesson about sharing, realizing that he was selfish with his friend and responsible for what happened.

    You can't say crap about the muppets, sesame street, or elmo

    I never really was a fan of elmo, even growing up as a kid, but now that I look back on this film that I did see in theatres, I find it quite good. I am still not a fan of elmo, but besides that fact, it's pretty good!

    A fairly wonderful outing for Elmo. Never my favorite character, but who can resist his charm? Elmo is probably best suited as the lead in such a film. He has the most wiggle room, personality wise. It's great to see The Count and Cookie Monster popping up, even if they are used too briefly. Patinkin makes a very decent villain, and doesn't have to embarrass himself too much. Obviously, this is for very young children, but the trademark Sesame Street humor, enjoyed by all, remains in tact. The biggest problem is Burt and Ernie's constant interruptions, constantly giving away what happens. Damn those two!
