  • Overview
  • Details
In a fresh spin on a classic tale, the lovable Muppets head down the yellow brick road with Dorothy Gale (Ashanti), an aspiring performer who works at her Auntie Em's (Queen Latifah) diner in a small Kansas town -- until a twister sweeps the girl away to the Land of Oz. There, she encounters many favorite Muppet faces -- including Miss Piggy, Kermit and the rest of the crew -- in this charming musical adventure.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this Muppet caper operates on two levels, with numerous gags that mainly adults will understand. The movie includes mischievous references to R-rated movies (Kill Bill, Passion of the Christ) and pretty far-out rock and roll, like the legend that Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" album has been used as an "alternative soundtrack" to the 1939 Wizard of Oz with trippy results.

Sexual Content

Some talk on what constitutes "sexy." Leading-lady Ashanti wears some provocative outfits (for which she is upbraided by her aunt), and the Wizard at one point materializes as a Lara Croft-style super-hot videogame vixen in revealing CGI clothes.


No worse than the fantasy stuff in the 1939 movie -- which means both the Scarecrow and the Tin Man get torn apart, then reassembled. Streetfighting between the Wicked Witch Miss Piggy and Dorothy.
