The best Muppet movies are the ones that use a high concept idea The Muppet Christmas Carol, while the worst tend to be the latter-day television specials which are cheap, and in-jokey with little substance. Even the newer movies sell themselves on pop culture cameos more than innovation. Muppets Take Manhattan is middle ground, being too inoffensive to stand out and not imaginative enough to impress.

It's all about Kermit wanting to put on a show (which is almost every damn Muppet movie in existence) on Broadway and his efforts to be taken seriously. The rest of the gang lose faith extremely quickly and abandon him (some friends!) leaving Kermit to bluff his way into an industry that wants nothing to do with him. Not taking no for an answer, he persists. If this is a somewhat autobiographical tale of Jim Henson and Frank Oz's humble beginnings it does lend a credible edge to the material. I think that Henson/Oz do their best work when being daring and edgy (The Dark Crystal , Little Shop of Horrors, and this Muppet adventure, being shot in and around the real Manhattan instead of studio sets, stops just a little shy of that. Kermit keeps complaining that the script for his big show is lacking "something" that he can't quite figure out.

Not the newest of the Muppet genre but it's absolutely fab. It's the good old singing, dancing Muppet adventure that we all know and love.
Coming to Manhattan to put their musical on the stage at Broadway the gang come up against some unexpected hitches. Cue split up and dispersal of the Muppet team around the country. But don't panic folks they're soon back singing and dancing together... ...there's only one hitch - where's Kermit?
This is a fantastic family movie and one both big and little kids will love. It has everything that makes the Muppets great.
Fab fun for all!

Muppets have been with me all my life i introduced muppets to my son via sesame st. and gradually to the movies and he loves so i got boxset for him at christmas and he loves it.The muppets
take manhatten is a funny story with twists in the story and kermit becoming phil-up-phil after been hit by a taxi.This also introduces the 3 frogs bill,gill and jill who are very funny indeed.Its not as good as the great muppet caper but its up there.I think this is the jim henson starring muppet movir so it basiclly kermits last movie as well and in my view its a very good movie for all ages

This DVD is great, the only problem is that it hasn't got alot to offer as special fetures it could have given some extra footage but besides that point it was great seeing another Muppet Movie apart from Muppets From space on DVD. The movie was great as it is on video, they did cut out alot of little minor things here and there but all in all it's a great film which every time you see it you'll find something funnier about it.

A frankly somewhat disappointing second entry in the Muppets' cinematic canon. Jim Henson & Co's follow-up to 1979's 'The Muppet Movie', it does not have it's predecessor's wit, sharpness or heart. The celebrity cameos aren't as good either, and the high water mark would be Joan Rivers, were it not for the bemusing nature of her inexplicable scene.
In some ways, it is not fair to compare MTM to the better instalments such as 'The Muppets Christmas Carol' and the second-but-most-recent 'The Muppets'. This film harks back more to the television series, with the plot taking a back seat through a large portion of the running time to a sequence of (not very good) musical performances and comedy sketches. Unfortunately, that doesn't really work for cinema-length pacing. By the time the plot came around again, the friends I watched it with had lost interest, and the fairly satisfying conclusion could not redeem it for them.
Fortunately, Kermit and his cohort can afford to spend a bit of good will on a miss. Good will is the one thing the Muppets have always generated in plentiful supply...
