I must say, this movie has a strange feel to it. It says Sesame Street, we see all our favorite Muppets and humans from the show, but it's the most un-Sesame Street atmosphere we've ever seen them in. Even the scenes on Sesame Street are odd, because it's not the 'studio' Sesame Street, it's a much wider, more 3-dimensional area. Theres no counting, singing of the alphebet, any of the things we commonly associate with Sesame Street. It's just all the characters in a road flick that borders on 'action/adventure movie' with some catchy songs.
All in all, it feels more like a regular Muppet movie, just with the SS Muppets instead (of course that transcending legend, Kermit the Frog, has an appearence). It's cute, although I imagine some small children could be scared by some tense parts, it's long, but it's a pretty good movie. I actually think adults who grew up on Sesame Street got a bigger kick out of it then kids, who will probably want Big Bird to start playing word games with them again.
