Poor excuse at a "muppet" movie
Joel D. Ealy | 05/29/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"let's hear it for disney.

they screwed up the entire spirit of the muppets on this movie, and on the recycled album.

there is no more spirit of adventure or zany antics, just a stupid urbanized tale- but it does not work.

the CGI was cheap, the songs were uninspiring, and the plot was expected.

this record is 60% already released.

whatever."
Great Fun !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"okay im going to be frank with you . I adore THE WIZARD OF OZ.It was my favorite story growing up , so naturally i was drawn to the MUPPETS WIZARD OF OZ.I was nervous , I mean what if they screwed up the story? Well , I said to myself if it turns out to be worthless at least Ashanti will sing and make it at least bareable.

I was pleasantly surprised.

It was imaginative witty and clever with cute acting , but one thing really drew me in - and that was the music.Okay we all know that Ashanti has a buttload of talent but wow ! She is really a gifted young lady.Every song she sings becomes gold , and they all have great upbeat tunes .While the muppets have enjoyable songs Ashanti was the highlight for me . I reccomend this album to anybody who enjoyed THE MUPPETS WIZARD OF OZ."

"I'm giving this 3 stars because it's 1/2 a good album. I bought it out of nostagia for the song "Halfway Down the Stairs," which I haven't heard in 20+ years. (The rest of the classic Muppet songs are good, of course, but that is my favorite track.) I could do without the songs from Muppet Wizard of Oz, which are mediocre at best, but put up with them to get the rest."
