The Muppet Movie

If you were a kid of the ’80s then you know your kids will never truly understand how important the Muppets were to your cultural development. In this madcap update of “The Wizard of Oz,” complete with the hallmark zingy one-liners and puns that made the Muppets a favorite of Generation Xers, Kermit the Frog and Fozzie take an old Studebaker to Hollywood. On their way, they meet and collect a wacky group of friends and break out into some pretty soulful song and dance numbers. There are some guns and they do eat some frog legs, but overall the more adult content goes far over kids’ heads.
