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.

    I watch this movie with my little eight month old son- and he loves it. It's the only thing that quiets him down when he is fussy. Still a classic and enjoyable for both children and adults. - Noga Rosenthal
