My kids adored The Muppets film we took them to last year so I knew that The Muppet Christmas Carol would be happily received.

My take: My 4 year old and I sat down and watched this movie this morning and both of us were utterly charmed. From the characters, to the storyline, to the music everything was perfect. Rizzo the Rat and Gonzo provided perfect comedic relief and grabbed the 4 year old’s attention time after time just as he was beginning to wander away. Michael Cane was brilliant as were the Muppets. The 4 year old also loved the blooper reel and we both learned how Christmas is celebrated around the world thanks to the bonus feature. I also enjoyed the Behind the Scenes Look and loved finding out that Brian Henson is the son of the great Jim Henson. A great Christmas movie for the entire family to enjoy!
