Product Description

Stop the presses! The crime of the century has occurred, and investigative reporters Kermit, Fozzie, and Gonzo are out to crack the case in this song-filled, star-studded extravaganza directed by the legendary Jim Henson. Our heroes arrive in London to interview Lady Holiday (Diana Rigg), a high-fashion designer whose priceless diamond necklace has just been stolen. But when Kermit mistakes lovely receptionist/would-be model Miss Piggy for her aristocratic employer, it's love at first sight. Unfortunately, Lady Holiday's scheming brother (Charles Grodin) is also wooing the sultry swine -- so he can frame her for another brazen jewel heist! Now it's up to Kermit and his Muppet pals to clear Piggy's name and catch the real culprits. Packed with music, remarkable production numbers, and hilarious cameo performances (including John Cleese, Peter Falk, Jack Warden, Robert Morley, and Peter Ustinov), this restored and remastered 50th Anniversary Edition of THE GREAT MUPPET CAPER is the wackiest story ever told! ~~(c) The Muppets Holding Company, LLC and BVHE.

This second motion-picture outing for the adventurous Muppets finds them in London hunting down jewel thieves while staying at the city's most cheerfully derelict dive, the Happiness Hotel. Filled with song and dance (and swimming!) numbers, this Jim Henson-directed feature is worth seeing, if for nothing else than to see the cantankerous Charles Grodin (Beethoven) swoon over Miss Piggy. But The Great Muppet Caper has a lot more going for it: cameos by John Cleese, Peter Falk, and Oscar the Grouch, among others; Miss Piggy parading down a catwalk; and Kermit the Frog on a bicycle. The Muppets are fond of breaking down that pesky fourth wall, which gives the movie some of its cleverest moments and will elicit the biggest laughs from the kids. (Kermit to Miss Piggy: "You're overacting. You're hamming it up.") By the time a framed Miss Piggy is freed and the real jewel thieves are caught, you'll forget the occasional slow spots and remember the musical numbers and the banter. --Kimberly Heinrichs --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I've only seen this movie on a recorded-off-TV format, but this is probably one of the funniest movies you can see (at least with Kermit the Frog in the starring role), and certainly the best Muppet movie, as far as I'm concerned.
The movie begins with Kermit, Fozzie, and Gonzo in a balloon, floating high above the city, reading the credits as they roll. ("Kermit? What does B.S.C. stand for?" "I dunno..." and "Nobody really reads these do they?" "Well sure they do. They all have families.")
Once the credits finish, the balloon plummets to the street, where the trio introduce the movie with a large song-and-dance number amidst a chaotic street scene, complete with a robbery on set!
The rest of the movie is loads of laughs as Kermit and his friends travel to England for their newspaper to interview Lady Holiday (Diana Rigg). Their Muppet entourage grows when the three book their stay at the Happiness Hotel, a run-down England hotel occupied by a crew of lazy Muppets.
Kermit, Fozzie, Gonzo, Miss Piggy, Animal, Dr. Teeth and the whole gang eventually team up to foil Lady Holiday's brother (Charles Grodin) and his three partners in crime from stealing the fabulous Baseball Diamond at the Mallory Gallery. It's pure, hilarious, and classic Muppet mayhem.
Kiddos and adults one and all will most likely enjoy this movie, and you don't have to worry about any unclean humor whatsoever.
I'm in my late teens and I still laugh at this movie. Definitely worth the money.

"The Great Muppet Caper" is not the definative Muppet film (check out "The Muppet Movie" [1979] for that distinction) but it is a very solid outing from Kermit and the gang. The celebrity performances and cameos (even Jim Henson, Muppet creator, shows up) are well-done, with just enough campiness to make them funny for kids, but just enough restraint to keep it interesting for adults. The bike riding scene in the park is first rate, as is the Esther Williams-style water dancing sequence with Miss Piggy as its star.
In short, this British-influened slice of cinema is more sophisticated than the aforementioned "Muppet Movie" and less silly than the subsequent films. It's a great choice. Buy it without hesitation.

This movie was a favorite of mine when it first came out. At 11 years of age my friends and I found it hilarious.

Now that I've seen it again after many years, I see why I had loved it so much. The songs are really well done ! There is A LOT of "dry" humor....funny for adults as well......and a level of sarcasm that can be appreciated by all ages.

In addition, this Muppet movie has an adventurous plot, so it keeps one's interest to the end.

I still enjoy it as an adult! In my opinion, The Great Muppet Caper is the best of the full-length Muppet movies.

I've always had a soft spot in my heart for the Muppets, even as I got older and started watching more "grown-up" movies.
Of the three Muppet movies made while Jim Henson was still alive, this was the first one I ever saw, and remains my favorite. The jokes are hilarious (my favorite being the recurring joke "We'll catch them red-handed." "What color are their hands now?"), and the puppetry is just incredible, especially during the scene where everyone goes for a bike ride.
Unfortunately, I can't give this 5 stars, because I'm not just rating the movie, I'm rating the DVD it's on. And quite frankly, the DVD stinks. Even though some bonus features (like on the "Muppet Movie" and "Muppets Take Manhattan" DVDs) would have been nice, what was REALLY lacking was the picture quality. The opening scene with Kermit, Fozzie, and Gonzo in the hot air balloon looked dirty and grainy. This film seriously needed to be cleaned up before being transferred to DVD.
So while the movie itself is great and gets five stars, I can only give the DVD three.

As I am indulging in all things British at the moment, I wondered how Jim Henson would be at a British murder mystery. The answer is absolutely fabulous!
In the opening credits, Fozzy complains about how long the credits are taking and says, "Does anyone even read those names?" "Sure," replies Kermit, "they have families." From there Henson takes you on a pure romp of fun, finding the humour in the British, in fashion design, in plot development, in seedy hotels, in Columbo, and in the Muppets themselves. Throughout the film, Henson also plays with the audiences' mind as he breaks down the barrier between the plot and reality. He was an incredibly clever man!
Also, if you have a favorite among the Muppets, yours will probably have his time in the spotlight. My favorites are Beaker and the Swedish Chef, and I was not disappointed in them. However, my appreciation for Kermit, Miss Piggy and Gonzo also grew in this film. (It's been awhile since I watched the Muppets.)
So, all in all, this is a good time for anyone, with humour and creativity there to inspire folks of all ages.

It's Kermit (Jim Henson), Fozzie, Miss Piggy (Frank Oz) and
Gonzo (Dave Goelz) like you've never seen them before! In this film Kermit, Fozzie and the great Gonzo play reporters for "The
Daily Chronicle" trying to find a necklace stolen from Lady Holiday (Diana Rigg) by her brother Nicky (Charles Grodin) and
Marla, Carla and Darla (Erica Creer, Kate Howard, Della Finch).
But at first they think Miss Piggy stole it! There are some funny
parts like when Kermit, Fozzie and Gonzo fall in the water and
fall from their hotel room.
Whenever you watch it you'll be "Steppin' Out With A Star And
feelin' High"
