To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
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.
As with other reviews I purchased this dvd specifically because I love the song 'The love has gone'. How disappointed I was to realise this song had been omited. I feel so cheated and would very much like to take Disney to task for this and would like an explanation. I would never have purchased it had I known.
I understand why they cut the Belle song. The voices were not great but, really, no one listens to muppets expecting good singing. What we do miss, by the omision of the song, is emotional impact, and sympathy, at what is a turning point for Scrooge. Dear Disney, please reissue uncut, I want a little cry!!
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! :)
This film is wonderful, but everyone knows that. My family and I watch it every Christmas. The "missing" song that various reviewers have complained about IS included on the Region 1 DVD, but only if you watch the full screen version. The old original Region 1 DVD included the song as well, but the Region 2 versions (including the one that was part of a box set) do not - they are exclusively widescreen. By the way, please don't buy this or any other Region 1 DVD and then give it a bad review simply because you don't have the means to play it! P.S. The blu-ray (in a set) does not include Belle's song either, sadly
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!
