Product Description

Product Description

Muppets double-bill. In 'The Muppet Movie' Kermit the Frog leaves his swamp and heads for the big lights of Hollywood to fulfil his dream of becoming a star. Along the way, he becomes involved with the usual Muppet cast, including the dazzling Miss Piggy, the charming Fozzie Bear and Gonzo the Great, and encounters such celebrities as Orson Welles, Steve Martin and Bob Hope. Whilst in 'The Great Muppet Caper' the Muppets come to London to investigate the disappearance of Lady Holiday's jewels, but Miss Piggy is fitted up for the theft. Many English actors make cameo appearances, including John Cleese and Robert Morley.

From Amazon.co.uk

The second motion-picture outing for the adventurous Muppets, The Great Muppet Caper, 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 from 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, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This movie is fun for all the family and has cameo roles by John Cleese, Joan Hickson, Diana Rigg, Peter Ustinov amongst others. You can't help but marvel at the ingenuity of Jim Henson. For me, the best and most suspenseful of all the Muppet movies; it has some really great moments - the muppets arrival in a totally gross, sleazy hotel in West London, a Busby Berkeley synchronised swimming sequence with the wonderful Miss Piggy, all woven around an absurd story line - romance between Kermit and Miss Piggy, and a jewellery robbery at a famous London fashion house. All you need is a bowl of popcorn, a comfy sofa and this DVD if you need cheering up!

Propably the best Muppet movie. A wonderfull absurd humor (notably the running joke with Kermit and Fuzzy being brothers in this movie) and some of the best songs in the series... My only complain is little to no special features. Compering to how packt with special features "The Muppet christmas carol" was it sad to see my favorite Muppet movie to have only one feature which had nothing to do with the movie...

Still! While no bonus features may be a big disapointed to some it's still a wonderfull Muppet film that will make you laugh really, really hard!

This is one of the most funny Muppet Movies, where the whole muppet cast travels to London. How can you go wrong with Jim Henson at the helm?

Bought this for my 9 year old nephew - who had recently seen the latest muppet movie. He was thrilled and loved it. As it was much, much older - I had wondered if it would be dated and not have the same appeal as the newer film but all his favourite characters were there and it was fast-paced and funny. Great buy!

Who really cares that this film isn't casablanca or titanic. Its a good yarn well done with funny and insanely catchy songs. God bless the muppets

The Muppets are a great show. If you like them you will love this. I took the kids to see the latest Muppet movie and they loved it. So I bought a couple of the original films on DVD for home viewing. It really appeals to younger viewers even though some of the scenery is obviously dated. Well worth having!
