Critic Reviews of "The Muppet Movie"Chicago Sun-TimesJune 01, 2015
Jolson sang, Barrymore spoke, Garbo laughed, and now Kermit the Frog rides a bicycle... If you can figure out how they were able to show Kermit pedaling across the screen, then you are less a romantic than I am: I prefer to believe he did it himself.TIME MagazineMay 06, 2008
The transition from the yank-'em-off-if-they-bomb lunacy of the TV show to the coherent narration of the film is not a complete success.VarietyMay 06, 2008
Jim Henson, Muppet originator, and Frank Oz, creative consultant, have abandoned the successful format of their vidshow, and inserted their creations into a well-crafted combo of musical comedy and fantasy adventure.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
Slapstick chases and weak movie references look tired, while the attitude towards Miss Piggy and Camilla the Chicken is, well, less than progressive.New York TimesMay 09, 2005
There's always room in movies for unbridled amiability when it's governed by intelligence and wit.People MagazineJune 01, 2015
With charm for the kids and in-jokes for their parents (when Kermit's bicycle gets mangled, he quips, "I thought I was gone with the Schwinn"), Muppet creator Jim Henson tries to give everybody a little something.Q Network Film DeskAugust 15, 2013
while The Muppet Movie is certainly entertaining, the shift to a coherent, linear, feature-length narrative deprives the film the show's brilliantly structured inanityThe DissolveAugust 13, 2013
With his Muppets, Henson found a balance between fuzzy post-hippie positivism and self-deprecating wit, and he added in the same quality that made many of the era's cultural phenomena so charming: simple problem-solving.Movie MetropolisAugust 02, 2013
'The Muppet Movie' is one big road trip, and like 'The Blues Brothers' there's a payoff not just at the end, but around nearly every corner. Music only sweetens the deal.Looking CloserNovember 25, 2011
This isn't about one sock puppet's search to be all that he can be. It's about a community combining their talents to bring joy to the world.
