Filmed right after the merger between Disney and Jim Henson productions, the Muppet's are featured heading to the greatest place on earth, Walt Disney World. Kermit and Robin take the gang to the swamp for a vacation in Califorina. It is the annual Bug Fry and it's a journey to the roots again for Kermit and Robin. However, the rest of the cast is less than excited about being in a stinking bog. When it is mentioned that they can see the fireworks from Disney, everyone is excited and wants to go to the park instead of being at the bug fry. Kermit says the'll take a short peak and be right back. As the Muppets accidentally break into the park, security tries to round them all up as they visit all of the parks. Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Disney/MGM. Finally, after being round back up, they get a chance to meet the one and only Mickey Mouse and show a huge musical number at the end.

It's also a very biased documentary, there's no clear representation of the opposition, it's more of a self serving piece for anonymous. But you know, faggory daggory do.

Ethan B (kr) wrote: Acquired taste is a perfect term for this niche market film. As far as sex comedies go, this is one of the better ones of the last 15 years or so. It combines a little American Pie with John Hughes-like characters. Ian (Josh Zuckerman) is a nice boy who longs for a girl to like him. He finally finds one on the internet and travels halfway across the country with his best friends Lance (Clark Duke) and Felicia (Amanda Crew) to meet up with her. Of course, along the way he rediscovers himself and comes to grips with his own identity. It's not the most original story, but what road movie is? It's all about the incidences that take place along the way.James Marsden often steals the scenes with his hilarious antics and dead-on portrayal of Ian's bullying pseudo-redneck brother, Rex, whose prized 1969 GTO Ian steals for his trip.As aware as the script and the direction is, it isn't perfect. Is Felicia really dumb enough to believe that Ian is really driving across the country just to see his grandma? If you intend to go on an 18 hour drive you don't just accept badly done lying. But it makes her presence on the road trip work and we ignore it.It never crosses the line of being too offensive--like many sex comedies try to be these days in order to separate themselves from the pack. It's amazing how we've entered into a new era of teen comedies in the last 5 years where most of them try so hard to be original that it ruins its natural charm. This one was made right around those turning-point years, but manages to remain mostly unfazed.I'm not usually a huge fan of this genre, but I enjoyed it's 80s/90s feel and great characters. I'd watch it again.Twizard Rating: 82

Lawrence's work, and took on his 1915 book, (published 5 years before Women in Love), The Rainbow. It is a very good film, with some good performances and visually amazing with it's locations and oddities we've all come to expect from Ken. :P It focuses on the young life of Ursula Brangwen (Sammi Davis), who lives with her father Will (Christopher Gable) and mother Anna (Glenda Jackson, playing the mother of the character she played in Women in Love) and her brothers and sisters. Ursula is courting soldier Anton Skrebensky (Paul McGann) and she has a lesbian love affair with her teacher Winifred Inger (Amanda Donohoe), who eventually marries Ursula's Uncle Henry (David Hemmings). Ursula gets a job as a schoolteacher, but finds misery from the schoolkids and headmaster (Jim Carter). It's good that Ken returned to do this as a prequel to the film that made him a household name, in terms of story and structure, it's not as good as Women in Love, but there's good performances on display here, (Davis is wonderful, as is Donohoe), and typical of Ken, there's alot of nudity on display!! :P

Tyler R (mx) wrote: It's about time Nicolas Cage decided to try again, and The Frozen Ground is proof that there is still a good actor behind the craziness. The film retells the hunt for a serial killer in Alaska. As of late, both Nicolas Cage and John Cusack have been turning in beyond lazy performances, especially John Cusack with his straight to DVD ventures. But here, both actors deliver in fine form, and help elevate this film above it's television movie feel. That's the biggest problem I had with this film. It all plays out like an extended episode of Law & Order or CSI. There isn't much of anything that is special or that hasn't been seen before. Other than that glaring issue, the film is good, and should act as nothing more than proof that these two actors are still good, they just need to give the effort.
