The mortgage is coming due on the Muppet Theater. If Kermit and company can pull off a spectacular Christmas show, they’ll be able to buy it. Otherwise, it’ll fall to the evil Miss Bitterman who inherited the bank from her recently deceased father. She wants them to fail so she can demolish the theater for a trendy nightclub. When things go wrong on Christmas Eve, it looks like the gang will be separated for good.
Fortunately, their plight has caught the attention of an angel in Heaven. When God sends “DannyL” down to help, Kermit wishes he’d never been born. The results surprise him. But how can his revelation that he does matter help them out of their situation?
If you think the plot of this movie sounds like another Christmas movie, you’d be correct. Still, the gang manages to keep us entertained through the entire story with a fantastic show at the theater and with Fozzie’s hilarious attempts to get the money to the bank on time to name a couple fun moments. Some of the jokes will go over kid’s heads, but will make adults laugh out loud. There seems to be a bit too much sexual humor, usually involving Joan Cusack’s Miss Bitterman character. Most of it will go over kid’s heads, but why it needed to be there in a kid’s movie is beyond me. Speaking of whom, Ms. Cusack is over the top, but in a fun, campy performance that does fit the movie. David Arquette is a tad bumbling as DannyL, but Whoopi is enjoyable as God. And there are more cameos then you can shake a stick at.
I guess my biggest complaint with the movie is that it’s not as funny as I was expecting. They take parts of the story quite seriously without the trademark gags and puns we expect from the Muppets. Still, it’s a fun Christmas movie that will be enjoyed for years to come.

I am a huge fan of the muppets so I ordered this the minute I realised that it was out, when I watched it I was really disapointed at the few funny jokes there where and how the plot line seemed feeble and weak, not worthy of the muppets, the ending wasn't right for me and didn't even seem to make sense (you make up your own mind about this remark if you ever watch it)
The basic plot line is that the morgage payment is due on the muppet theatre and Kermit and his friends will be evicted by the evil banker if it isn't paid in time.
This only gets 2 stars from me because it was very very bad compared to the earlier films by the muppets, this one to me seemed like a way to just squeese money out of the franchise without a thought towards the plot line.
This isn't a bad movie to watch but if you are a muppets fan I'd recommend you stick to the muppets christmas carol.

I have been a big fan of the hillarious antics of the Muppets since a kid and the wonderful 5 star 'Muppets Christmas Carol' has become somewhat of a tradition each year in our household!
So I was looking forward to something new from our furry, felt friends and adding to our Christams viewing - sadly however 'A very muppet Christmas' won't be becoming part of that tradition!
Recorded on channel 5* over Christams (the fact that it was on 5 alone should have set alarm bells ringing!)
What a let down! It just comes across as being a complete mess and not very funny, in fact I found it quite melancholy with very few laugh out loud moments in at all, (the only one I can remember was beaker getting his hands caught in the window!)
The guy playing "God's" assistand came over as a real drip where they could have made his role quite funny, even the usually fantastic Whoopi Goldberg (playing god (I assume)) doesn't manage to shine in this.
This could have had potential to be a good film if they'd tried harder buy unfortunately I'm going to give this an E for effort as it falls about as flat as one of Fozzie Bear's jokes!

Forget The Muppet's A Christmas Carol. This is very far removed from it! It's a TV movie rather than a feature film so perhaps the comparison is a little unfair.

As has been said previously, this is The Muppets version of A Wonderful Life. All I can say is that it was OK with only one joke I can remember! Certainly not like the classic Muppets of old. The highlights for me were when the Grinch characters appeared and the Muppets musical version of A Christmas Carol (Moulin Scrooge!).

A couple of times that were references that I felt unsuitable for a young audience especially when we The Muppets theatre turned into a pole-dancing club!

OK but don't expect too much.

When I ordered this DVD I expected a Muppets movie as witty and ingenious as the Muppets Christmas Carol. The disappointment was great, the story is boring, there are almost no gags. I rate this DVD with one star for the two or three times we had to laugh.

Not a classic Muppet caper to say the least. Whoopi Goldberg aside, the human characters are the worst in any Muppet movie I've ever seen - some of the acting is truly AWFUL! Also, the film contains a little too much innuendo for a U-rating.
