Family friendly and utterly charming, The Muppets Take Manhattan is a gem. The most successful kids films are those that entertain adults as well, and the person that pioneered that concept was Jim Henson. In this film, his Muppets, well, take Manhattan, and everyone’s hearts along with it.
If you haven’t seen it in years, you’ll be delighted at the actors and cameos: Dabney Coleman, Brooke Shields and the mayor of New York himself, Ed Koch.
And the wedding? The wedding is a movie musical lover’s dream. Featuring Big Bird.
