Sesame Street Presents: Follow That Bird Reviews
Filled to the rim of star cameo's and although this film is simply and aimed mainly for children it has enough humour for adults to appreciate.
Much better than I thought it would be and surprisingly stands the test of time...
Some of this film a tad too cheesy for me to get fully into, and I never really understood why it was so important Big Bird have to move away with other birds either.
A handful of great cameos and I'd say the songs were alright: like two were really good, but some like the Blue Bird song or the Flying Upside Down song were pretty bad.
I think this movie works more for nostalgia reasons that anything.
The Story Follows Big Bird as he is sent to Illinois to live with a dodo family unhappy with his new family he runs away and tries to head back to Sesame Street before A bird social worker or two unsuccessful circus owners get him so its up to members of Sesame Street to get him first
There's also a number of fine songs that drive the story forward and it's nice to see every one getting their fair share of the action; Grover (Frank Oz) steals the show and Oscar the Grouch (also performed by Spinney) and Maria (Sonia Manzano) have a number of effective gags as a mismatched team.
The film, perhaps, would've benefited from a secondary plot, but by the end of it all, it's the youngest members of the audience whose opinions really matter.
