The Muppets get real
15 September 2002 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews



A biting and direct parody of two gay muppets, clear enough stereotypes for anyone choosing to acknowledge it, that plays it for all its worth. Although it has a very old-fashioned gays-are-never-happy kind of ending it still cleverly plays on the stereotypes.

Great musical score by Spencer Day.
