Jim Henson’s Turkey Hollow: Directed by Kirk R. Thatcher. With Mary Steenburgen, Jay Harrington, Graham Verchere, Genevieve Buechner. The Emmerson family heads to the quaint town of Turkey Hollow to visit Aunt Cly. Tim and Annie quickly grow bored without the Internet, and soon try to track the howling hoodoo, an elusive monster the locals dismiss as a legend.

“u0026quot;Turkey Hollowu0026quot; includes some legitimate laugh-out-loud moments, a mostly terrific cast, and four memorable u0026quot;monsters,u0026quot; but it also includes some inexplicable choices. Chief among these is a reliance on toilet humor (literally, in one scene), which feels completely out of place in such a naively cute story. Iu0026#39;m no prude, but hearing these jokes, along with words such as u0026quot;fugly,u0026quot; in a family Thanksgiving special is strangely jarring.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eItu0026#39;s especially noticeable because the show works just fine without these gross asides. The funniest moments all come from the characters themselves. The aunt characteru0026#39;s cranky hippie persona feels just right, especially her unexpectedly adorable interactions with the townu0026#39;s sheriff–odd that this subplot is really the best thing in the whole movie.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eItu0026#39;s also odd to see Ludacris filling the narrator role usually reserved for Kermit the Frog in Jim Henson productions. Maybe Kermit was busy that week.”
