Pretty Lame

I went in with an open mind and fond memories of Jim Henson's past treasures, like The Labyrinth and Dark Crystal, but was severely disappointed. The character dialogue was horrible, the unnecessary use of mild and almost illicit profanity (what the fuu...zzy,) in a movie geared for children was a big fail, and the Freudian slips, (sorry to disrobe you,.. uhh I mean disturb you,) was a really lame attempt at inappropriate humor, which all my kids caught. Not enough time was spent on the monster's characters or their interactions with the other characters. The plot was terrible. The acting was barely passable. Overall, this movie had a lot of potential, but fell flat on it's face.

Not scary

My family (kids aged 10 and 8) loved this movie and we enjoyed it too. It was nice to watch a family friendly film that didn't have any bad language or sex scenes!
