Sad, Disturbing, but funny.
22 May 2009 | by Futurama_FanaticSee all my reviews

I happened to find this controversial film online. And I was on a mission to watch all banned films in the USA, so I decided to watch it. And it was sick, sad, disturbing, putrid, and so many other terms. But funny.

It begins with Ernie coming home to Bert however he noticed that Miss Piggy wasn't there. It was because of the rumors that Bert and Ernine were gay... Ernie is, however Bert isn't... And I won't say the ending, but it is rather sad.

The Muppets actually look like the actual ones besides being life-size instead of puppets. And I love how it makes them seem like real people in real life. So if you manage to find this film online, watch it. (Before the cops find out!!!)

Overall: 7/10
