Overview

Great Muppet Caper

The second of the Muppet movies, The Great Muppet Caper, comes to DVD with a pair of transfers. The widescreen anamorphic transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and is preferable in every way to the standard full-frame image. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround, while Spanish and French soundtracks have been recorded in Dolby Digital Stereo. Subtitles are accessible in all three of those languages as well. Supplemental materials include a featurette about the Muppets, and trailers. This is a family-friendly release with excellent picture and sound quality.

My husband and I frequently quote this movie since we grew up on the Muppets. The characters are lovable and of course the dialogue is unforgettable. "We'll catch them red-handed. What color are their hands now?" We searched high and low for this film since it's out of distribution, luckily B&N promises it will be shipped shortly. I can't wait to introduce this one to our son. I usually am not a Charles Grodin fan, but how can you not respect a man who hits on a pig puppet?!

Our family has enjoyed this movie for years, and our video is almost worn out. There are wonderfully funny and memorable moments, that entertain each and every viewing. Our children are grown ups now, and still laugh and enjoy watching "The Great Movie Caper".
