Film Review: Sesame Street:Singing With The Stars

Michele Wilson-Morris

From the very beginning, Sesame Street has been an innovator in finding ways to help educate children. In "Sesame Street: Singing With The Stars," they had some help from huge celebs like Jason Mraz, Andrea Bocelli, Alicia Keys, LL Cool J, Adam Sandler, Hootie and the Blowfish, and many others who are doing their thing while the muppets sing and dance along. It's a double whammy of star power when the muppets meet music, and the winners are all in viewing range of this great DVD. Sesame Street has had a major upgrade in both its look and coolness factor as the artists all sing melodies that sound just like you're listening to your radio, and the muppets are rocking to the groove with the dance moves of 2012. "Sesame Street: Singing With The Stars" is very entertaining, and children of all ages will find themselves enjoying it. This is a DVD that the entire family can enjoy together as new memories are made and old ones are brought back to life. The timeless and faithful Sesame Street process of learning how to count are matched to lyrics sung by today's hottest artists, and the process is brilliant.

Slow changes in scenery make it ideal for younger viewers, but not too slow for those of us over 21 and then some. This is a blue ribbon film like only Sesame Street can do, and it also comes with a CD that has 5 songs on it so little ones can sing along in the car. The world was so much better when we all lived on Sesame Street, and watching this will take you back there and make you want to stay.
