I am still astonished, aftet first seeing it two decades ago, how massively awe inducing and magical the first Muppet Movie was. The chemistry, the laughter, the friendship, the feeling. Will Muppet Movies ever get back to eing even close to the impact of the original trilogy? The A list guest stars?(not some F rate NBC stars) The original heartfelt/moving, and fun songs? (Like Movin Right Along, etc) That epic feeling of th eMuppets coming together for an epic cause(ie: when you see th eMuppet gang stand up to Doc Hopper in the Western town) Those great cameos(like Big Bird and later every single Muppet in the closing number...Oscar in GMC, or that huge Muppet Show/Sesame/Fraggle crossover at the end of TMTM) Most of the film taking place outside(Hello JHC, its called reallife locations, not stuff cardboard sets on a Universal or Disney World set) IMHO VMC was not a very good direction for the Muppets...it was a great har har, inuendo filled mess...and it was good to see various cast alumni back...and MFS, had an EPIC first 15 minutes then poo'ed out soon after. Im just hoping JHC and the writers can get out of this decade plus writer and creativity block and get back to making Oscar worthy mind blowingly great films again...not forgettable of the times stuff that get suniversally panned by critics and fans alike.
