Quotes

Demon: [confronting Sahu as Big Bird and Snuffleupagus stand beside him] Prince Sahu, every night for the past four thousand years, I asked you the same question. I have asked the question 1,600,041 times, and not once have you given me the correct answer. I can assure you it has been very boring for me, and it's probably useless to ask the question again. But since I have no choice for the 1,600,042nd time, you have ten seconds. Where does today meet yesterday?

A Wonderfully Weird Sesame Street Movie
13 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I very highly recommend this Sesame Street film for you and your children to watch. It is supposed to guide viewers through the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, but it is done through the memorable characters of Grover, Oscar the Grouch, Bert and Ernie, and Big Bird. Kids can also get to learn a little bit (albeit filtered through the lenses of Jim Henson productions) about Egyptian mythology. Older viewers(those between the ages of eighteen and about thirty) will thoroughly enjoy this as a piece of nostalgia and camp, especially as relived through memorable characters of their childhood. One can't help but to laugh at the weird juxtaposition between Big Bird and the ominous Egyptian god of the dead, Osiris. Cookie Monster's song, which helps him remembers not to eat pictures of fruit and other food products, is hilarious and the most memorable part of the film.

Viewers of all ages will love this movie, so sayeth Osiris.
