The Muppets Take Manhattan Reviews

This follow-up to THE MUPPET MOVIE and THE GREAT MUPPET CAPER is not as good or as hip as its predecessors, but the Muppet gang remains fairly charming. The plot follows the old "Hey kids, let's put on a show" story line--except that this time the barn is Broadway and the "kids" are Kermit and friends presenting "Manhattan Melodies" at a college campus. They feel that the show is good enough for Broadway, so everyone goes off to conquer the Big Apple. There they find the doors of all the reputable producers firmly closed, although one unsavory character (Dabney Coleman) is interested, providing they kick in $300 each. Crestfallen, they all go off in different directions to raise money for their show, with various adventures and encounters with the film's guest stars (making for some fun celebrity spotting) on the way.
