Muppet movie everBy Richard Brown from UK , 13 Apr 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Not only is this the best Muppet movie ever, but thanks to the narrator reading Dickens? lines, it is one of the best Christmas Carol adaptations. Caine is good in that he plays it straight rather than a pantomime villain, and the result is so watchable, that I soon forgot that I was watching puppets most of the time!
There are a few problems though. First it this is a PAN & SCAN release. The second is (controversially) that one of the key songs (When Love is Gone) has been cut, which was many people?s favourite.
So roll on the Director?s cut!

Must See Christmas MovieBy Hotscotjimi (9 reviews) , 04 Jan 2013This is a staple of movies that I watch every year at christmas. It is a great movie to get you into the christmas spirit and is a good play on a classic story. Many films have been made of this book but this one is a great version and makes a difference from the over made film which is more or less a carbon copy of the book so this is a breath of fresh air since it is a little bit different to the others. This is a great movie for both children and adults with jokes that children might not get. So get this into your DVDs that you will watch at christmas with the family.

Best of the MuppetsBy midlandsman (24 reviews) , 30 Dec 2012First it has to be said i have never been a great Muppet fan, but this is the very best of them. I also have to admit I am not far off 50 and watched just about every version of the Christmas Carol ever made and this I think is the best one ever made. Yes it has to be watched with a very large pinch of salt and yes a few bits got on my nerves that had to be fast forwarded through. That said it was. fun and had the whole story covered a must for kids and feel good for adults. How Charles Dickens would have felt about Puppets im not sure just watch and enjoy a warm and well created film.
