Synopsis


It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie
What would life amongst the Muppets have been without their unofficial leader Kermit the Frog? That's the question posed by this made-for-TV confection, which not only spoofs the Yuletide classic It's a Wonderful Life, but also takes satirical aim at such pop cultural phenomena as Moulin Rouge and Fear Factor. The plot is set in motion when typically evil banker Rachel Bitterman (Joan Cusack) forecloses on the Muppets' famous variety theater, with the intention of building a gaudy nightclub. But Bitterman's machinations take a back seat when apprentice guardian angel, Daniel (David Arquette), shows Kermit (voiced by Steve Whitmire) what conditions would have been had Kermit never existed. Without going into full detail, suffice to say that a Kermit-less world would have found Miss Piggy (voiced by Frank Oz) running a fraudulent psychic hot line, Fozzie Bear as a homeless derelict, and Sam the Eagle as a caged dancer at a rave. Decked out with cameo appearances by everyone from Whoopi Goldberg to the cast of the TV series Scrubs, It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie debuted over NBC on November 29, 2002. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    The quality of the picture is good to very good as is detail and color. I'm not a muppets fan so here goes. The story is largely filler with various muppets tumble around and into each other. Basically, this is a retelling of Its A Wonderful Life with Kermit playing the Jimmy Stuart role. I'm sure children will like it but it will play less well to adults.

    Really Bad

    I love the muppets and grew up with them. I bought this, not having seen it, to share the experience with my seven year old. The message is awful and the whole Whoopi Goldberg as a sometimes clueless, mostly snarky God is not easy to explain to a young child. Not sure what age group this was for- I didn't find it watchable and it is definitely not for kids.

    This movie is not the best as compared to the likes of "A Muppet Christmas Carol" but it is still enjoyable. The blu-ray was a nice gift for my mum and she had never known about this since it was a for-TV movie. She was happy to have received it, but when I get as easy a chance to snag "A Muppet Christmas Carol" I will 10/10 be doing that.

    The movie is a classic. No complaints about the actual movie at all. The only problem is the digital copy code. I had to contact the vendor due to the code coming up as Suits Season 1 instead. They did fix it and send me a new code after a few emails back and forth.

    If I would of known someone was playing God in it I wouldn't of bought it. I thought it was very disrespectful to have anyone even attempt it let alone make a mockery of it the way it was played out. I grew up with the Muppets, and have loved watching them but this was beyond disappointing.

    I bought the Blu-ray only for the purpose of the digital HD Copy. When I checked the code, it was Not for the movie Verry Merry Muppet Christmas. It was for the TV Season Suits in Standard Definition. I emailed Universal and they have not replied yet.

    This made-for-TV transfer (by Universal) to dvd is most welcome. Both the humor and drama is more refined than the original Muppets show, with references to "It's a Wonderful Life", and other classic film. Anyone who likes the Muppets should love this. The Extras are hysterical.
