I don't know.
I think it's the English river.
Oh. I'll take a picture of it. Say cheese!

When the final copyright credits appear, Gonzo appears under them and says "Whoa, wait, don't go home yet. Say cheese!" Gonzo then takes a picture of the whole audience and the screen goes black when he takes it because the flashbulb "blinded" the audience. After the screen goes black, Gonzo's voice is heard saying, "I'll send you each a copy." See more »
For kids, this film is like a kind of methadone for the heroin that is known as Pokemon (in other words, watch the muppets to get off of Pokemon even though there is no comparison to the muppets). For some of us adults who grew up with the muppets, and this movie in particular, it's a kind of small-scale piece of homage heaven. This is a fun movie, plain and simple, which parents won't find too bad either. Story takes the trio (Kermit, Fozzie and the Great Gonzo) to London as journalists who have to investigate dastardly jewelry robberies. There's plenty of great gags, horribly awesome puns, the cool flavor of the 'Jewel of the North Atlantic', and a few cameos (John Cleese and Peter Ustinov notably) surrounded by the nut-house that is the muppet world make this a near must see. The musical numbers, by the way, are close to perfect. Jim Henson's first feature length film as director is close to being his best, though not quite.
