Telly: [after Jon Stewart and others are stuck in the dressing room] Oh, no! If they can't get out, that means there's no show. And if there's no show, then all those people who wanted to hear the music will be sad. And if all those people are sad, they might not go to work tomorrow! And if they don't go to work tomorrow, the economy will collapse! And if the economy collapses, the country... will be... DOOMED! DOOMED, I tell you! This is terrible!

A lame attempt at Muppet entertainment
6 August 2005 | by (South Portland, Maine) – See all my reviews

Ever since we lost Jim Henson, Sesame Street has taken a turn for the worse. And this t.v. movie is no exception. I've got more than one complaint about this purposeless film. First of all, is that the real Radio City Music Hall? The auditorium looks like that of a high school, and even the hallways are insipid. Call me overly sensitive if you want, but I bet there's a bit more to the hall in the real place. And what is all that fiddle-faddle about the door sticking just by getting shut all the way? And digging underneath it-indoors? Are you kidding me? And the way they finally do get the door open... well, if you must see this movie, I won't give it away for you, but it's really dumb.

Next, there's Grover driving everyone to the performance. I thought this would be pretty interesting (who doesn't love Grover after all?), but why oh why did they have to include the bit with them ending up in New Mexico? That was, to put it lightly, extremely idiotic.

A few of those guest stars, such as Tyra Banks, Cindy Crawford, and Conan O'Brien, who needed them??? Out of the many song selections, only Jimmy Buffet's performance of "Carribean Amphibean" with Kermit and the frog band and a much-changed Kenny Loggins' rendition of "One Small Voice" were any good; the rest was all garbage, especially that En Vogue number.

One thing I did like the movie was the set design. Those shots of the Muppets working backstage were as good as the shots of any Muppet movie. But that just isn't enough to save this film alone I'm afraid. I highly recommend passing it up. I know one thing, I will do my best to avoid letting my children see it. Hopefully it will be out of print by the time I even HAVE kids.
