Overview

One of the most popular characters on Sesame Street gets his own movie in this family comedy. Playful Elmo (voice of Kevin Clash) loves his blue blanket and would never want to lose it. So when it gets spirited off to parts unknown in the midst of a tug-of-war with one of his friends, Elmo sets out to find it and ends up in the grumpy kingdom of Grouchland, where Huxley (Mandy Patinkin) and the Queen of Trash (Vanessa Williams) rule over a dark and ill-mannered domain. Along with Elmo, several other favorite Sesame Street characters appear, including Oscar the Grouch (Carroll Spinney), Ernie (Steve Whitmire), and Bert (Frank Oz).

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Kryssa Schemmerling
It's refreshing to see a beloved TV character -- in this case, the fuzzy red Muppet tyke of "tickle-me" fame -- make such a delightful splash with his feature film debut. The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland begins when Elmo's security blanket falls into Oscar the Grouch's trash can. The familiar can proves to be the passage to Grouchland, where garbage abounds and a motley assortment of delightfully messy Muppet monsters (and a few humans) sing, dance, and indulge in bad behavior. There, with the help of his "Sesame Street" pals, Elmo must retrieve his blanket from the clutches of Huxley (Mandy Patinkin), a dastardly villain who, like our hero, has some important lessons to learn about sharing. Highlights include Patinkin's showstopping number about the glories of greed and the appearance of sexy songstress Vanessa Williams as the Queen of Trash. Bert and Ernie narrate, stopping the film whenever things get too scary to offer reassurances that everything's going to be all right. You would have to go back to The Muppets Take Manhattan to see these fuzz balls on such a wildly imaginative big-screen outing.
