good, if overly long
24 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This 56 minute, 24 second documentary can be located on the special edition DVD of the film "Labyrinth". It covers the conception of the film (they made the right choice in Bowie, as Micheal Jackson would have been a disaster). It also goes into the sketches for the various Muppet characters and features interviews with various cast and crew members. I would have enjoyed a fairly more recent retrospective documentary on the film, but for a documentary that came out around the same time as the film, this doesn't feel as fluffy and just used to drum interest into ticket sales for the film as much as other documentaries of it's time. That said, at almost an hour, this is still too long by a good 20 minutes or so.

My Grade: C
