Trivia

This in the first The Muppets film since the deaths of Jim Henson and Richard Hunt in which Rowlf, Scooter, and Dr. Teeth talk. Rowlf's only line is "Awwww!" at the breakfast table, when he finds out they're having bologna. Dr. Teeth's only line is "Shalom!", on the way to a bar mitzvah. Scooter was voiced by Richard's brother Adam Hunt, and his line is "Get your Gonzo T-shirts. Only ten bucks!" See more »

An entertaining film
17 July 1999 | by FilmCritic-3See all my reviews

With big summer blockbusters and special effects all around, how could the muppets fit in? The answer is: Very well! In this entertaining film, Gonzo believes that he is a space alien after he receives messages from outer space. This prompts government agent K. Edgar Singer (Jeffrey Tambor) to go after him. What follows is a funny and wild muppet movie that I think little kids will enjoy.

And for you old Muppet alumni, see this film ASAP. I believe it is one you will enjoy. WALDORF AND STATLER RULE!
