The Muppet Christmas Carol Reviews

November 27, 2007
The fit between sentiment and satire is not always a comfortable one and the more dedicated fans of either the story or the Muppets may leave theaters dissatisfied.

Nothing can really diminish the late Jim Henson's irresistibly appealing characters.

This is the dullest and least successful adaptation of the Christmas chestnut I've ever seen.

Good fun.

There's no great show of wit or tunefulness here, and the ingenious cross-generational touches are fairly rare. But there is a lively kiddie version of the Dickens tale, one that very young viewers ought to understand.

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.

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.

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