Intensely captivating

This film is a beautiful story of a man rediscovering himself through the power of music. The script is perfect, not feeling slow or rushed, but instead feeling captivating and powerful, while dedicating the perfect amount of time to the points it makes. The characters all feel like real people going through realistic struggles. This film is flawless and I recommend it to everyone.

Along with the Muppets and live actors, the DVD makes creative use of animated shorts, accompanying songs such as "Froggy Went a'Courtin." Songs like "If You're Happy and You Know It" and "O Susanna" should be familiar to young children, and if they're not tunes in the family repertoire already, this DVD is a fun way to teach them.

A few lines of dialogue are aimed at adults, but the action will appeal most to 2- to 4-year-olds who love music -- any kind of music. The special features include additional appearances by Garth Brooks, and Tim McGraw and Faith Hill who sing "Take a Turn." (Some guest appearances are plucked from Sesame Street archives).
