The Muppet Movie

In the first of the many Muppet movies, Kermit the Frog attempts to sorta explain how the gang got together on his way to make it big in Hollywood. Entertaining but sometimes gets too carried away. The plot is uneven, but it is most definitely made up by its jokes and the countless cameos. An entertaining film that's one of the best (but not the best) of all the Muppet flicks. Very likable; there is enough material to keep children and adults entertained! The songs, however, are horribly corny. Followed by The Great Muppet Caper.
