Classic story retold in funny, touching Muppet romp.
A medley of familiar Christmas classics...with a distinct Muppet spin.
The Muppets are back in fine form!
There's a brilliant moment that finds Scooter in S&M gear, gyrating in a cage in a leather bar as Kermit ponders a world where he's never been born.
...will never make it onto the list of classic holiday flicks, but it's agreeable enough to warrant a mild recommendation...
[It's] a movie which at best provokes a few random chuckles and at worst makes me weep for the future of the Muppet gang.
The most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational Christmas movie I've seen in years.
It's A Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie is the Muppet take on the Christmas classic, It's A Wonderful Life. However, it's a halfhearted effort at best and is more of a spoof than an homage. All the comedy is sloppy, obvious, and overly cartoonish, with none of the craft that the Jim Henson Muppets had. David Arquette and Whoopi Goldberg give weak, bland performances that do nothing for the story. The only thing working for the film is Joan Cusack, whose cartoonishness is at least fun to watch. It's A Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie is little more than a second rate parody film, and slowly deteriorates into a series of loose comedy sketches. Still, it's the Muppets and one can't help but be drawn in by their charm.
The muppets' Christmas show is under threat as an evil woman wants to convert the theatre into a night club. Lots of funny moments and special guests including David Arquette and Whoopi Goldberg. I love Fozzie bear, his heart is in the right place.
You've got the guest cameos, Kermit and the gang trying to save the Muppet Theatre from financial ruin again, and the basic plot from It's a Wonderful Life, everything you'd expect from a Muppet movie. Some fun moments. The celebrities in the lead roles are going over the top in their performances though. And this string of Muppet movies taking the plots of A Christmas Carol, Treasure Island, and The Wizard of Oz don't seem as strong as when the writers come up with original stories.
How did the muppets get roped into such garbage? They should have just re-run the original christmas movie that was awesome.
