Fun to watch in a "Remember that one!" type of way. I was waiting for a John Denver type to come out and sing a number with them a la their greatest album ever! :-)

I really wanted to like this but the creepy hand of contemporary Disney gave this movie a saccharine, weird flavor.

Very entertaining for the entire family. It had a little bit of everything- all my favourites were back. Well worth waiting for. Cheers.

Best Movie Ever Done By The Muppets! I Simply Loved It! Disney Obviously Brought The Muppets For Something Good To Make, As They Hardly Ever Make Anymore Good Movies, You Know, Those Teen Shows. But, Anyway, This Was A Very Well-Written Movie, With Great Songs And Great Music, And I Reccomend It To Anyone Who Loves The Muppets.

Walter, a Muppet, lives with his human brother Gary in Smalltown. They became Muppet fans when they watched The Muppet Show in their youth. Gary plans a vacation to Los Angeles with his girlfriend Mary to celebrate their tenth anniversary, inviting Walter along so he can tour the Muppet Studios. Mary feels that Gary's devotion to Walter is detracting from their relationship.
In Los Angeles, the three visit the abandoned Muppet studio. During the tour, Walter sneaks into Kermit the Frog's office and discovers Statler and Waldorf selling the theater to Tex Richman, an oil magnate, and his henchmen Bobo the Bear and Uncle Deadly. Waldorf explains that if the Muppets can raise $10 million they can repurchase the theater. Walter overhears Richman revealing his plans to destroy the Muppet Theater and drill for oil underneath, and later warns Gary and Mary about Richman's intentions
