In the spirit and tradition of Bob Hope and Bing Crosby, Sesame Street makes a road trip movie for kids to watch. At a time when things were good in America and Sesame Street was a top rated children's show, Jim Henson took his characters from the television screen to theater screens. A time when Big Bird is not sure that Sesame Street is the right place for him, a six and a half foot yellow bird. Who would have thought?
Ken Kwapis directs this beautifully done film with great landscapes and cinematography to boost. Back when this film was made, Henson was still alive and performing with the muppeteers, along with old friend Frank Oz. All the main Sesame Street characters on the show at the time were cast into this film, which enriches its wonderlust for children of all ages. After all these years, "Follow That Bird" is still loads of fun to watch.
Considering that this is a children's movie (we're all children at heart), I give this film an 8.
