Telluride Film Festival: Sunday at the Palm - "The Muppet Movie"
Free. Concessions Open. “Jolson sang, Barrymore spoke, Garbo laughed, and now Kermit the Frog rides a bicycle. ‘The Muppet Movie’ not only stars the Muppets but, for the first time, shows us their feet. And if you can figure out how they were able to show Kermit pedaling across the screen, then you are less a romantic than I am: I prefer to believe he did it himself. He's pedaling on his way to Hollywood, and ‘The Muppet Movie’ itself is one of those origin stories so beloved by comic books. We've learned how Spiderman came into his extraordinary powers, and now here are the earliest days of the Muppets.” – RogerEbert.com
