The Muppets Take Manahattan (1984)

A wonderful blast from my childhood. Kermit and his buddies have just graduated from college. They put on a musical for their senior variety show and everyone tells them that it is good enough for Broadway. The Muppets go to New York City figuring that it will be a quick and easy show to sell. However, every door is slammed in their faces. Kermit tells his friends that they need to move on and he will let them all know once the show is sold. He starts working in a diner owned by Pete (Louis Zorich) and his daughter Jenny (Juliana Donald). Kermit is about to give up until he finds a producer who wants to put the show on, Ronnie (Lonny Price). He writes to all his buddies telling them of the good news and they begin to arrive in the Big Apple. However, Kermit is soon missing and the show can not go on without its star.

I loved watching this movie again as an adult. I loved the Muppets as a child so I know I saw this even though I did not remember many of the details. The Swedish Chef still makes me laugh. This is one of those movies that kids can enjoy but that the adults will not find boring or tedious. A great movie to watch with your kids or when you want to feel like a kid.
