The Muppets Take Manhattan


(out of 5)

The Muppets are back, and this adventure is just as delightful as the previous ones. The cute and adorable puppet-marionettes have decided to stage their own Broadway show, and so head off to New York with dreams of making it on the Great White Way. When they get there, they must contend with all manner of misadventures, the most notable one being when Kermit The Frog bumps his head and gets amnesia, separating him from his group and getting him lost in a fog about who he is. This leaves Miss Piggy to fend for herself while pining for her froggy lover. A tuneful score and wonderful, family-friendly humour make for a great film that everyone (including adults) can enjoy.
