Last night I was browsing through Netflix wondering what new movies I could add to my queu, and then suddenly, Being Elmo appeared! I couldn’t believe it – but yes, there it was, and available for online streaming no less! If you are a member of Netflix, you have your puppeteer homework for the weekend. Watch. This. Movie. I’ve had the opportunity to see it a couple of times and can’t say enough how excellent it is. Don’t believe me?
– Roger Ebert, EBERT PRESENTS AT THE MOVIES
“GRADE A! A MARVELOUS MOVIE! It’s a documentary about Kevin Clash, who became the voice and operator of Elmo, the tomato-red fur ball and emissary of hugs who is without a doubt the most beloved Muppet of his time.”
– Owen Gleiberman, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
“[ONE OF THE FIVE BEST INDIE MOVIES TO SEE THIS MONTH] REMARKABLE…a heartwarming story of how one person realized his dream, and made significant sacrifices along the way.”
– Leonard Maltin, THE HUFFINGTON POST
“CRITICS’ PICK! A winning tale of the persistence and creativity behind one of the most famous and fuzziest faces in the world.”
– Neil Genzlinger, THE NEW YORK TIMES
