A perfect blend of Charles Dicken's timeless classic and The Muppet's joyous humor and fun. We watch this movie every year without fail and it is just as good as the first time. Good fun for all the family.
We have an on-going family tradition that must always be obeyed - to watch The Muppet Christmas Carol every Christmas Eve just before bed! Everyone knows the story, but trust me you haven't lived unless you've had it told to you by Gonzo (playing Charles Dickens) and Rizzo the Rat. Loaded with some legendary songs that you can't help but sing along to, this film will get you firmly into the Christmas spirit, I guarantee it! Ok, so Michael Caine may be a little tone-deaf when it comes to singing but I can't sing either so I'm in no position to criticise haha! We had this on VHS before and so didn't get the extras (the bloopers are a must see) however a bit gutted that they cut down on one song and edited out another altogether - hence 4 stars for this DVD not the 5 stars that the film in its entirety really deserves. All-in-all I would strongly recommend this for all the family, old or young! :)
Ein lustiger weihnachtlicher Film, nicht nur für Muppetsfans. Eine lustige Variante von der Charles Dickens Weihnachtsgeschichte. Meine Tochter 3,5 liebt ihn auch. Leicht trockener Humor, wirklich super! :-) Wenn die Rezension hilfreich war würde ich mich über ein nützlich freuen! :-) Danke!

This was bought to watch with my Dad over Christmas as a Christmas Carol is his favourite. However, we took him instead to see it at the theatre and as he stayed just 2 nights and the other day we went to the cinema to see Cats we didn't have time to watch it. We will put it somewhere sensible for next Christmas and look forward to watching it then!
What a fantastic dvd, we watch it every year and no matter what age we reach, it still makes us smile, ages ranging from 21 up to 56 yrs. Great acting and puppetry , very clever props and well worth viewing. "...and a merry Christmas to one and all," said Tiny Tim as he sat on his stool near the mean fire , his stick leaning on his leg. x
There are many christmas films that people love. But for me, this film stands head and shoulders above the rest.
This heartwarming take on the classic Dickensian Christmas allows for you to really reach the heights of happiness on what is or many, the happiest day of the year.
The casting of Michael Caine as Scrooge works perfectly as we see his transformation from miserable miser to frivolous fellow. We go on a journey with Scrooge and it is no easy task but Caine rises to it with aplomb.
The Muppets as always provide great amounts of laughter with their quick jokes, clever songs and great character combinations. The back and forth between Rizzo and Gonzo is a classic example of how to perfectly craft your characters interaction to make it feel real, even though we definitively know that our beloved Muppets sit in a slightly different reality than us.
If you have not seen this film, go get it. Wait till December the first and then fill your house with the joy of the season.
