This movie may be a little dated (It may be hard to believe, but it came out almost 20 years ago!), but it is definitely one of the best Sesame Street movies ever written.
I am amazed at the cast of this movie: Sandra Bernhard, Chevy Chase, Waylon Jennings, and Joe Flaherty just to name a few. They definitely add "spice" to an already good movie.
If you or your child is looking for a nice Sesame Street movie, I definitely recommend "Follow That Bird". I think it recently came out on DVD. If you have already seen it, you should see "Big Bird in Japan" or "Big Bird in China". However, they (especially "Big Bird in Japan")are a bit harder to find, and I don't think they're out on DVD yet, but they are on VHS. I do not recommend "The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland", however.
