One of James Frawley's rare ventures into film directing. He more often directs for television. See more »
At the end of "I Hope That Somethin' Better Comes Along", when
Kermit the Frog and Rowlf harmonize on a final pair of long notes, they both hold the notes, audibly, until the end of the song, but Rowlf's mouth changes to a scat/improv line that he sings and we hear. (In other words, his voice is heard on two different musical lines at the same time). See more »

Gentlemen, that's straight ahead. Private screening room D.
Yeah, they're afraid to show it in public.

This is the first Muppet movie of the billion others that came out, and is also the best, by far! This deals with Kermit the frog going on a trip to Hollywood and meeting the other characters along the way. This movie, along with being already good, has excellent songs performed by the Muppets, including Rainbow Connection, Can You Picture That?, Moving Right Along and others. This movie, unlike the other Muppet flicks, carries a strong sentimental value to me. It's such a nice movie. Also noted is it's many cameos featuring Steve Martin, Mel Brooks and a dozen others. It's really one of the best family films out there today!
my rating-A plus. 109 mins. rated G.
