First Muppet movie is full of wonderful songs, plus guns.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Muppet Movie is a pretty likeable road trip romp with singable songs, but with some guns and slapstick violence. Throughout the movie Kermit is being pursued by men with guns and a couple shots are fired. Miss Piggy and Kermit are captured, Kermit almost gets his "brains scrambled" in a crazy electrical machine, and there's a final stand-off with guns drawn. But the Muppets always get away from the bad guys in a fun way (thanks to Miss Piggy's karate chops). There's some drinking -- Miss Piggy and Kermit drink wine with straws -- and minor characters smoke cigars.
