Overview

Frank Oz (the voice of Miss Piggy and numerous other Muppets) directed The Muppets Take Manhattan, which comes to DVD with a pair of images. The widescreen anamorphic transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and is preferable to the standard full-frame transfer. English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese soundtracks are all rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. Subtitles are available in all four of those languages, as well as Chinese, Thai, and Korean. Supplemental materials include trailers and an interview with Muppet creator Jim Henson. This is a fine release from Columbia/TriStar. More could have been done, but this release will please fans of the film and its furry stars.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Andrea LeVasseur
The third entry in the original Muppet movie trilogy and the first to be directed by Frank Oz, The Muppets Take Manhattan is not as memorable as its predecessors, but still manages to entertain on the same levels. The similar story line is present here as in the first two, as Kermit and the Muppet gang struggle to make it big and put on a show. This time, the group is striving for success in New York, rather than Hollywood or London. Some of the plot drags when Kermit gets amnesia and is separated from the others, as well as when the group gets depressed about the lack of funding for their Broadway show. For the most part, however, all the familiar elements are there, including the constant flux of celebrity cameos such as Joan Rivers, Dabney Coleman, and Gregory Hines. This was the last Muppet movie to feature the late creator Jim Henson; his son, Brian Henson, would later continue the series with The Muppet Christmas Carol in 1992.
