Muppets double bill at the New Beverly

THE MUPPETS TAKE MANHATTAN and THE MUPPETS CHRISTMAS CAROL provide singing, dancing, musical-comedy Christmas entertainment for the whole family. These are two of the best films starring Jim Henson’s famous creations. Although the MUPPETS CHRISTMAS CAROL takes liberties with the text in order to accomodate the casting of frogs, rats, and pigs (not to mention the fact that there are two Marleys), it emerges as one of the better film versions of Dickens’ immortal tale, with a good performance by Michael Caine as Scrooge (doing a wonderful job of playing it straight while surrounded by non-human co-stars).
