Product Description


Kermit takes center stage in this hilarious, parody-laden celebration of Muppetry, pulsating with original music, a star-studded cast of human cameos, and a heartwarming story reminiscent of "It's a Wonderful Life." Joan Cusack plays the deliciously villainous Miss Bitterman, a ruthless banker who succeeds in foreclosing on the Muppet Theatre only days before Kermit's Christmas extravaganza. As Kermit loses his livelihood, he plunges into the "I wish I'd never been born" mind-set instantly recognizable to George Bailey fans. It's going to take some Divine intervention (Whoopi Goldberg is cast as God, no less), plus a little help from a heavenly "Clarence." Despite some moments where the script seems adrift (how hard it must be to live up to the irresistible precedent set by the 1979 premier Muppet Movie) and some humor that borders on risqué, Fozzie and the gang are in fine form. The message is sweet: dreams are as vital to life as loyal friendships are to see them through. (Ages 5 and older) --Lynn Gibson

2.0 out of 5 stars meh, not great but not offensive Dec 16 2010
I didn't find it offensive like a lot of reviewers did but this movie was pretty boring and choppy. It really wasn't funny either, I missed the muppet humor. Then again I don't know how much humor the muppets could inject into it's a wonderful life. What humor there was was very slapstick, not the wit your used to with the muppets. I expect some inuendo from the muppets but this was a little too obvious-scooter was cage dancing in leather stripper shorts at a night club. The second half of the movie was better then the first so give it a full try to see if it's your cup of tea. It does turn into a heart warming tale but I would stick to A muppet christmas carol. Maybe if they had done it more along those lines it would have been better. Also, Joan Cusack was awful as a villian, it makes me sad to say so because I like her.

1.0 out of 5 stars One of the more boring movies Feb. 22 2012
By Apollo
This is one of the more boring muppet movies. Watch it on tv once and you have seen enough of it. I will watch it again on tv but won't pay for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Muppets enjoyed by the whole family. Jan. 6 2011
By Jenn
A Hilarious movie! Our ages range from 6 to 35 years...we all enjoyed it! Some laughs in there specific to the adults, but not inappropriate for the kids.

3.0 out of 5 stars Involved Parent! Jan. 8 2004
By liplash
The movie wasn't spectacular, but it was passable Christmas Muppet fair. However, the reviewer who was offended by the Propecia joke is even more stupid than the film was. Propecia is a hair loss medicine NOT a prostate medicine... I repeat... NOT a prostate medicine. God Lord, when you shut off that movie after 30 minutes did your children hit you over the head with your DVD Player? Yours is one of the most dim-witted reviews I've read in some time. It's not fine art but it's certainly NOT offensive! I'd let my kids watch it any time they pleased.

1.0 out of 5 stars awful Dec 16 2003
I love the Muppets and used to watch The Muppet Show each time it was on, so I was thrilled to hear about another Muppet movie. I thought that the Muppet Christmas Carol was great, and I was looking for more like-minded entertainment. This was not it. The comic insult dog does not belong in a Muppet special. Nor does a scene that's a parody of Moulin Rouge (complete with Piggy saying "Will you sleep with me tonight?" to Kermit in French). I was greatly disappointed by this movie. Stick with the old classics -- this one is not one of them.

Whatever happened to the good-humoured Muppets. This movie was just plain disturbing. Somehow the magic created by Jim Henson is impossible to recreate because this movie plain sucked. Now I am not a god-fearing Christian, so Whoopi Goldberg portraying God didn't bother me. What bothered me was the sexual innuendo and of-beat jokes that just seemed mean-spirited somehow compared to the old Muppets we have all come to love.
I had to turn this movie of after 30 minutes because I just couldn't stand it anymore.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Modern Muppet Twist on a Christmas Classic Dec 15 2003
By Steph
I'm not really going to go too much into the plot; I will just say it is a modern muppet version of "It's a Wonderful Life" with some other movies thrown in the mix :) This movie has a lot of big names and guest appearances such as Whoppi Goldberg, Joan Cusack, and David Arquette just to name a few, plus all of the muppets! The DVD version also has muppet bios, bloopers, and deleted scenes - although not as entertaining as I had hoped, but still nice little extras. If you love the muppets, I would highly recommend adding this movie to your collection.

1.0 out of 5 stars Would give it 0 stars if I could. Dec 13 2003
Shame on everyone who took part in this. The Muppets have been dragged through the mud with this abysmal movie filled with inappropriate, suggestive dialogue and situations. DO NOT let your children watch this awful, shameful movie. And Whoopi Goldberg?!?!?! Puh-leeze ... This is a travesty from start to finish. Instead, watch "A Muppet Christmas Carol," "Muppet Family Christmas," or "Christmas Eve on Sesame Street." Even the early John Denver/Muppets special, inexplicably unavailable on video, is far better than this embarrassment. Avoid, like the plague.
