Muppets FloppedBy a customer , 13 May 2013This is ok for kids, however, if you're a fan of 'Muppet Christmas Carol' and 'Muppet Treasure Island', you will be disappointed! This doesn't even come close! I prefer the original Wizard of Oz, and if the muppets make a re-make of a classic they need to either make it as good as, or better! They did that with Christmas Carol and Treasure Island. Again, music wise, no particularly good catchy songs to sing along to like in the others. It's the same with 'Muppets in Space'. The 90s films were the best.

Muppet fans avoidBy a customer from Hemel Hempstead , 02 Jan 2010As an avid Muppet fan I was dissapointed. The origonal Oz film is much better. The muppets are great when they are singing or inacting with real people but put them in a film and the illusion is lost. Sorry but there it is. And I am a puppetter as well.
Great Kids FilmBy a customer from Peterborough , 01 Jul 2009Fantastic fun, my kids loved it and their dad
Not exactly Judy GarlandBy a customer from Stone , 28 Jan 2009
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideThe story and presentation stick reasonably closely, allowing for the actors, to the book's plot, and therefore quite close to the previous - let's face it - iconic film (1938 or so). But it suffers from having less music - and what there is of a lesser value - than in the earlier version.
Authenticity good point: the magic shoes are their proper colour (silver) rather than ruby.
It's pleasant to see the usual suspects, of course; and the activities of Miss Piggy (being, among other roles, Wicked Witch of the West) as a Biker Queen are pretty good (hommage a Richard Wagner and all).
But, alas, I don't feel compelled to see it again - pity. Are the Muppets better in shorter takes, I wonder, than protracted works of this kind? More research needed: watch for later reviews of similar shows, then.
