Too much sexy stuff & inappropriate content

This movie is not appropriate for kids! Early on there's scene with Beaker and he makes a wish and a woman in a tight fitting short red dress appears by his side hugging and touching Beaker. Shows women as sex symbols and that it's okay for men to want them solely for their sex appeal. Then the little prawn guy flirts with, oogles, and makes suggestive noises/comments to any lady who appears. Pass on this one!

Unbelievable - NOT for kids

I cannot believe this received an “age 4+” rating. At 11 minutes into the movie a woman an an extremely low cut dress with TONS of breast exposure is introduced as the result of a “wish” made by Beaker. She is very obviously meant to be sexual and is moving around, kissing, and pawing at him in a seductive manner. 100% NOT appropriate for kids and I was astounded it was in a muppets movie. I can’t even attest to the rest of the movie because we immediately turned it off. We have four sons and are raising them to understand that viewing women in a sexual manner is not appropriate. Likewise, that it is inappropriate for women to dress and behave sexually. But in a movie for CHILDREN?!! Good lord…..no thanks!!
