    the best part is watching for references....

    like the box that said Goelz Enterprise (or something like that)

    a Animal key chain...

    and the outtakes.....HILARIOUS!!!

    You got us lost....YOU LOSER...

    and my fave

    my weak knees.....

    oh yeah i also liked

    how did i get in here?

    haha

    Sarah

    ok so the movie isn't the best, but i liked it more than most....of course i'm a sucker for sickingly cute (unless it's elmo!)sure it wasn't the best...but i don't think it was NEAR as aweful as some people have said

    I agree totally, Sarah. It's not the best thing out there, but it ain't no Disney direct-to-video cheapquel! And, it really isn't as bad as some have made it out to be on here.

    My favorite parts were-

    Kermit comes face to face with a Young Jim Henson
    Middle-Aged Statler and Waldorf
    And the Outtake-
    Goggles:"Waitaminnit, EVERY SCENE'S A NUDE SCENE!":concern:

    But I think this was supposed to take place in the mid-60's.....

    The time discrepancy bugged me. It was set in a modern setting from what I remeber. And what was with the Wizard of Oz references through the whole thing? The parts with the puppets were great. The aprts with the humans were aweful. And I also didn't like the Rowlf reference. That made no sense. Were they saying that Rowlf was a real dog and got turned into a muppet? Made no sense.

    I didn't think it was the best, but it was funny, and it was cute, and who couldn't like a movie with the loveable muppets in it?! I thought that the outtakes were the best part, and I really enjoyed the characters, even if I didn't really like the whole plot.

    My favorite part, like most people's, weas the outtakes. They were just so wqacky and goofy and-Muppety. Now if only the REST of the movie had been like that...
    *Sigh* :sympathy:

    It wasent the best thing thr JHC has put out, but it was good (But it had the voice of the dog that I cant stand, she seems to play alot of diffrent caracters now rugrats, Clifford, Barbie repunzle it sounds like a chain smoker and my little sisters of cource watch all of these and it drives me nuts!!!) but it was funny in a kid sorta way :) ;)

    Kermit's Swamp Years

    I know this is old news, but I just really have to vent right now. Why and How does Kermit the Swamp Years suck so much? The SFX was terrible, the story was a snoozer, the characters nothing special, and it was aimed at kids! Thats not the way it works. I love the Muppets but I'm sick of them sucking do-nuts! Also, since I'm on this rave, am I crazy or should they have NOT made Gonzo an alien. Why do all the new muppet movies dissapoint and frustrate?

    :boo: :boo: :boo:

    *cowers* I think it was to introduce a new generation of kids to the muppets....and I kinda liked it.....not as much as VMX!!!! but It wasn't horrible...that's a harsh word

    Wrog, horrile is too light a word to give the film. It was detestable, unwatchable, sick, sad, stupid, the puppets looked aufull, the actors (apart from Mary), where so un hip it is a surprise their bums didn't fall off, sorry but it was not good.

    Meh, the punk version of Rainbow Connection at the end by Me First & The Gimme Gimmes was pretty neat (that band rocks lol).

    Yeah, but that is the only good of the whole darn thing.

    I was going to get the DVD of swamp years to complete my collection of Australian muppet dvds available in Australia which currently stands that at 3 including swamp years. I am thinking twice whether to get the DVD now, is it that bad?

    the trailer I saw of it didnt look that great but I will get it anyway I think.

    Here are the reviews from last year...

    http://www.muppetcentral.com/articles/reviews/tv-film/ksy.shtml

    My opinion is that sometimes we can make the mistake of thinking of this as a Muppet movie (like the first film or Caper) when it really isn't a "movie" at all. It's a direct-to-video release like Muppet Classic Theater not a full-length feature film. I think we all agree it could have been better, but expecting a full-blown Muppet movie may not be the best approach since it is not really accurate.

    In my opinion it is worth getting for the sake of it, but brepare to be dissapointed.
