At the opening of the film, Kermit, Fozzie, and Gonzo are riding in a hot air balloon and commenting on the opening credits. Sample dialog: "Wow, a lot of people worked on this movie.", "Nobody reads those names anyway, do they?", "Sure. They all have families." See more »
"The Great Muppet Caper" had a fantastic start, as Kermit, Fozzie and Gonzo fly about in a hot air balloon. During their flight, they see the credits and make comments about them--priceless. And, the first 15 minutes or so of the film is great. However, when the actual plot begins, the show starts to drag. Much of this is because I wanted to see Muppets--not Charles Grodin, Diana Rigg and other human actors as well as some uninteresting plot about jewel thieves. And, because the Muppets are best when not over-burdened with plot and are allowed to just cut up and be silly, the more there was plot the more the film lost my attention. Now this is not to say that the film is bad or not worth watching--but as it progresses, the laughs do become less and less frequent. For my time, the best of the Muppet films were "The Muppet Movie" and "The Muppets".
