The Muppets Take Manhattan


(1984) dir Frank Oz w/Kermit, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie and all the rest plus cameos by Art Carney, Gregory Hines, Joan Rivers, Elliott Gould, Liza Minnelli, Brooke Shields, John Landis, and more [94 min; DCP]
When the Muppets’ college show is a big hit, they decide to take it to Broadway, which brings adventures that could happen only in the Big Apple – including a bout with amnesia for Kermit that turns him into a total square. The movie ends with a wedding between Kermit and his porcine love, which is part of the show within a show – or could it be for real?

“MUPPETS TAKE MANHATTAN, the third Muppet film, is an anomaly… a departure from the first two Muppet endeavors.” Read Deirdre Crimmins’ commentary in her Brattle Film Notes essay
