655. The Muppet Movie

The Muppet Movie
Directed by James Frawley

Continuing my campaign of killing buzzes, we come to the Muppets.  I never got the appeal of the Muppets and can safely say after seeing this film that I still haven't.

Kermit takes a road trip to Los Angeles in order to make a movie.  He meets many quirky Muppet and human characters along the way.  Songs are song.  Orson Welles makes an appearance.  I feel like I am describing a really bad trip I had.

I think there are plenty of children's movies that can be enjoyable for adults.  This is not one of those movies.  I couldn't even enjoy the songs since they were sung in such obnoxious voices.  I just can't get into puppets.  Boyfriend loves the Muppets and one of our phone calls ended quite tersely when I said I didn't.  Oh well.

RATING: **---

Interesting Facts:

Bob Hope and Steve Martin both made cameos in this film.
