Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
They're closer than you think.
When Kermit the Frog and the Muppets learn that their beloved theater is slated for demolition, a sympathetic human, Gary, and his puppet roommate, Walter, swoop in to help the gang put on a show and raise the $10 million they need to save the day.
It's fine if you don't like this movie, but it probably means you're an angry, hate-filled asshole, and fuck you.
I AM A MUPPET REBORN!!!!!!!
I do not condone a man to have sexual relations with a muppet.
It's like beastiality when you think about it.
While not as good as I first remember, you can't deny that you walk away from the viewing with a nostalgic twinkle in your eye, a whistle on your lips and a spring in your step... and after all, isn't that the point?
What's not to like about The Muppets? Funny, charming and endearing The Muppets work on all levels for all ages. This isn't the funniest film i've seen BUT I can't remember the last time I sat watching a film with a smile on my face for the whole 90mins.
All The Muppets gang are here including new edition Walter and I must say he is rather adorable. Jason Segel and Amy Adams are an item who are very twee and sickly but play it wonderfully and it totally works to the films credit. Also I must add, there are plenty of cameos but much of them are a case of blink and you'll miss them. I was surprised to see…
"..Your fans never left you, the world hasn't forgotten. All you need to do is show'em again!"
...and so I was drunk and sad and distraught and knew I needed something that would make it impossible to frown, to cry, or to anger. I noticed I had a forgotten copy of The Muppets and suddenly I knew it was the recipe for joy I needed now, now more than ever before...and I was right.
After all these years, I never forgot. I needed their love, and they gave it to me in spades.
Off television for 30 years and off the big screen for 12, The Muppets are finally back in a whole new adventure to dispense the third best gift in the world: laughter. This time, instead of the late Jim Henson at the helm, Jason Segel, James Bobin and others succeed in filling some big shoes thanks in large part to their nostalgia for the characters.
The plot centers on two brothers Gary (Jason Segel) and Walter (voiced by Peter Linz), one a man and the other a Muppet (either someone was adopted or theirs something odd going on). The two along with Gary's longtime girlfriend Mary (Amy Adams) travel to Los Angeles to find The Muppets are no longer together.…
I sing these songs in the shower
Highly Favorable 👌👌👌
The biggest problem that I've always had with 2011's The Muppets is its outsized focus on new characters Walter (performed by Peter Linz), Gary (Jason Segel), and Mary (Amy Adams) when the main characters should really be the Muppets themselves. Ultimately the movie is a lot of fun though, and that makes it worth the watch.
A fun entry into the Muppet franchise and one that feels most like the Muppet show of my childhood. great songs and cast. and did I mention its got Muppets...
(8) Why do I always come here? I guess I'll never know. It's like a kind of torture to have to watch these movies... (8)
I have a lot to say about this one, so let's get right into it.
First things first: I like The Muppets. I don't consider myself a huge fan by any means (after all, I've only watched this movie six years after its release date), but they have a special charm. For me, they are the optimistic and upbeat franchise par excellence. More than any Disney or Pixar name, more than My Little Pony, more than any feel-good movie. It doesn't matter how awful you're day, your month, your life has been, The Muppets…
I love this film so much. It really puts you in a good mood too.
Yup, still love it. If I'm ever feeling depressed just need to queue the Tex Richman song and I'm good. Genuinely funny even after ten or more watches.
Task # 16: A Disney musical
I remember enjoying the parody of this trailer, The pig with the froggy tattoo, and knew that Bret Mckenzie won an Oscar for Man or Muppet. The things I like about this were most of the songs (probably because they sounded so much like Flight of the Conchords), and some of the meta jokes. The bad guy, Richman, seemed pretty weak, especially his sudden change of heart. A lot of the Cameos were underplayed, and they seemed to have some good ones.
If The Muppet Movie so beautifully gave us the origin story of those fabulous, wocka wocka wacky kooky musical Muppets, than The Muppets serves as the pinnacle of what makes these characters great. Beautifully serving as both a nostalgic trip down memory lane and a comeback film, the film stars Jason Siegel, Amy Adams who's more interesting here than she is Lois Lane, and a convenient Muppet-looking character named Walter who rush to bring Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, and the gang back together to put on one, big telethon before Chris Cooper the greedy oil baron tears the Muppet theater down for oil. Sure the plot is as stereotypical as it gets, but don't you expect kooky whackos in…
Films ranked from 2011 that I would give four stars or higher.
