A great way to deal with a hard subject
14 November 2002 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

This is one of the saddest movies I have ever seen. Filmed after Jim Henson's death, the Muppets work to discover information about Henson so they can plan a memorial.

In typical Muppet fashion, the muppets have taken a difficult subject and found a way to handle it in a touching, funny, and sad way. I love this movie!
