Sing Yourself Sillier at the Movies is a Sesame Street direct-to-video compilation released in 1997.

In a spoof of Siskel and Ebert's Sneak Previews, Telly and Oscar are seen in a movie theater, reviewing the silliest songs from Sesame Street. Telly loves all of them and he gives them 5 "Wows". Oscar, however, dislikes them and gives them 5 "Phooeys" (but ends up liking the last clip).
