"Where everything seems possible and nothing is what it seems."
Director: Jim Henson
Writer: Terry Jones
Genre: Fantasy, all the way, baby
Seemingly alienated teen Sarah wishes for the goblins to take her annoying baby brother away. Oddly enough, the sexy Goblin King Jareth is more than willing to oblige. Many Muppety adventures ensue.
- "It's only forever. Not long at all."
- Excellent appearance of the Knights and Knaves problem!
- Jareth disguised as a beggar in the maze ("Hello, Hedgewart." "*Hogwart*"... "Hoggle!")
- The bog of eternal stench!
- "Chilly down with the fun gang... Just strut your nasty stuff."
- A film so hip/enjoyable/cheesy that Brooklyn clubs have sing-along fests...
