The Muppets Take Manhattan
That's what the show needs... More Frogs & Dogs & Bears & Chickens & Whatever
After graduating from college, Kermit & the rest of the Muppets decide to take their stage show "Manhattan Melodies" to Broadway however, it doesn't turn out to be rasy & they end up divided, working in a range of different jobs, waiting for a miracle
The Muppets were together again & taking no for an answer as they took on the Big Apple in this fantastic entry in the franchise directed by Frank Oz.
It's a film I've always loved & one that continues to get better with each subsequent viewing, it is both hilarious & heartwarming with a magnificent score/songs (Saying Goodbye is a beautiful example) & faultless (as well as obvious) jokes, all accompanied by some gorgeous location work, the usual star cameos & a truly showstopping finale
This was to be the last Muppet film of the 80's but it did spawn the successful Muppet Babies TV series

about his favorite musicals.
Nah, not a big deal. John Landis (American Werewolf in London/Blues Brothers) and I go way back. College buddies in fact, if you’d believe it. #johnlandis
watching: Into the Night (1985)
Ed Okin (Jeff Goldblum) leads a joyless existence. He hates his job as an aerospace engineer. To make matters worse, his wife is cheating on him. Well, take heart Ed, your life is about to get a lot more interesting, really fast. While at the airport, he bumps into beautiful but ditsy jewel thief Diana (Michelle Pfeiffer), on the run from an ensemble of thugs (David Bowie, Dan Aykroyd, Roger Vadim) who will stop at nothing to recover the emeralds she has pilfered.
