"There's always room in movies for unbridled amiability when it's governed by intelligence and wit."- Vincent Canby, New York Times
"Jim Henson, Muppet originator, and Frank Oz, creative consultant, have abandoned the successful format of their vidshow, and inserted their creations into a well-crafted combo of musical comedy and fantasy adventure."- Staff, Variety
"Jolson sang, Barrymore spoke, Garbo laughed, and now Kermit the Frog rides a bicycle... 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."- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Cute without being insipid, funny without being childish, The Muppet Movie contains enough magic to please all ages."- Staff, TV Guide Magazine
