Raucous Muppet spoof of a classic gets a wee bit edgy.

A mess

We’re big Muppet fans and expected to be a bit disappointed. After all, a human is the star and the Muppets are supporting players. And if you go in expecting that, things will probably seem fine for the first half. But then the whole thing also loses the Wizard of Oz thread. Afterward my 5yo said he “hated it.” My 10yo said, “The Muppets are supposed to be weird, but not that kind of weird.” The main human, presumably chosen for her singing, doesn’t even sing much — another human that’s famous for singing doesn’t get to sing at all. Hard to figure out how this was fumbled so badly.
