The Muppets' Wizard of Oz

Kirk R. Thatcher USA, 2005

AKFilmFan's rating of the film Muppets: Der Zauberer von Oz

Right from the beginning w/ it's pop R&B twist on "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" & the 1st intro of the gang (Girls Gone Wild & Napster references give you an indication of the film's audience), you can see the Muppets gasping for air. A special that's so inept that it loses the magic of the source material & so unfunny that even Tarantino's sad cameo is the only joke since his pitch sounds better than the actual film.
