The Muppets : Wizard of Oz product reviews

Join Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and all the Muppets as they turn everyone's favourite classic tale into a musical, madcap adventure that shines brighter than Emerald City!

The fun starts when the Muppets team up with an all star cast that includes Grammy Award winner Ashanti, Oscar ® nominee Queen Latifah, David Alan Grier, Academy Award ® winner Quentin Tarantino and Jeffrey Tambor. Ashanti sparkles as Dorothy, an aspiring singer whose dreams of fame and fortune seem worlds away from coming true in the Kansas trailer park where she lives with her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry.

But when a tornado transports her and Toto (Pepe the King Prawn) to the magical land of Oz, Dorothy meets the Wizard, who promises to make her a superstar ? if she and her wacky new friends, the Scarecrow (Kermit), the Tin Thing (Gonzo) and the Cowardly Lion (Fozzie), can defeat Oz's #1 diabolical diva, the Wicked Witch of the West (Miss Piggy)!

DVD Special Features:
    •  Outtakes and Bloopers - Oz Oops!
    •  Backstage Disney - Pepe's Exclusive Making Of
    •  Extended Interview with Quentin Tarantino

I have been a Muppet fan for nearly as long as I can recall, and now my 6 year old son has caught the Muppet bug too, which bring joy to my heart. Classic, kid-safe comedy that doesn't involve fairy godparents, cats with wierd headgear, or mutant creatures with 1960's language skills... great stuff for today's new generation.

This Muppet movie takes a new look at the classic Wizard of Oz story and gives it a twist in a way only they can, with wacky humour, layers of jokes for kids and adults alike, and some truely enchanting songs cropping up everywhere. Yes, this IS a musical, so if you are expecting more of a movie format, you might find yourself groaning a bit... but give it a try, you just might like it.

With familiar faces popping up all over the place, and of course all the famous Muppets making an appearance (even good old Swedish Chef makes a cameo) you'll just fall in love with it.

Overall, well worth the effort and cost if you are a Muppet lover... if not, give it a go and find out what you are missing.
