Firstly, answer me this...do you like the Muppet Show? Would you like it better on acid? This is definitely a bizarro classic from Mr. Peter Jackson filled with demented puppets who work on a variety show. It manages to be gross, weird, musical and even adorable making it quite the thing to see. The problem is that it runs a little long, it's entertaining but only for so long before one forgets to care. Still a frog singing about heroin, a sodomy obsessed wolf, and a gun totting Mrs. Piggy clone (that is a Walrus) make for quite the film. I don't really know how else to describe this but if you are offended by anything it's probably in here and well if you've only seen his "Lord Of The Rings" prepare for muppet shock!
