Should have been much better by MBreslau August 27, 2012 - 3:17 PM PDT

Nice concept, if somewhat reminiscent of "The Muppet Movie".
I stuck with it as long as I could stand it. always hoping it would get better; but alas, my tolerance for stupidity was exceeded after 45 minutes.

Jim Henson, like Gene Rodenbury and Walt Disney, was one of a kind and can be imitated, but never be replaced.
