The Muppet Movie (40th Anniversary Screening!)

After Kermit the Frog decides to pursue a movie career, he starts his cross-country trip from Florida to California. Along the way, he meets and befriends Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy, Gonzo and rock musicians Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. When Kermit is offered a job by Doc Hopper (Charles Durning) to advertise the fried frog legs at his restaurant chain, Kermit turns Hopper down. However, Hopper refuses to relent and pursues Kermit and his companions to a final showdown.

“Jolson sang, Barrymore spoke, Garbo laughed, and now Kermit the Frog rides a bicycle… If you can figure out how they were able to show Kermit pedaling across the screen, then you are less a romantic than I am: I prefer to believe he did it himself.” (Roger Ebert)

“There’s always room in movies for unbridled amiability when it’s governed by intelligence and wit.” (The NYTimes)
