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?
"..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.
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…
Nostálgica, divertida, honesta y extremadamente fiel a sus principios esta película de los Muppets esta plenamente realizada para respetar a todos los fans que crecieron viendo "The Muppets Show" (entre los que me incluyo) y seguramente agradará a algún infante de esta época aunque ciertamente este producto dependa mucho de la nostalgia.
PD: Jason Segel se esta consolidando como un buen escritor de comedias.
Essentially this film is a bit like "Enchanted". It's pretty great fun and it's got plenty of laugh out loud moments, but underneath it all it cannot help but be a romantic comedy at heart. Now if you are a fan of rom-coms then all power to you, but for me, that's a strike against the movie. There's a lot of "meta" stuff in the film where it references itself. For example: a character will enter a scene apologising for being out of breath because of the musical number they were performing in the scene prior. However, this almost feels like an admission that if they were to give us the film straight up, it'd be a bit lame.
It's one of those films that you watch with a smile on your face from the beginning to the end. A real feel-good nostalgic film.
It also has some of the best cameos I've seen.
Pure, heartfelt, joy for everybody who grew up with The Muppets. Life is certainly a happy song!
In interviews for the movie, Jason Segal, star and co-screenwriter, commented how much he loved the Muppets and The Muppet Show growing up. That love is apparent throughout "The Muppets", a true return to form for the beloved Henson creations. There is pure affection for the characters and the material.
This becomes apparent in the second half of the movie when the characters stage a telethon to raise $10 million to save the Muppet Theater from an evil oil tycoon named Tex Richman (played winningly by Chris Cooper). The moment the curtains open and you hear Kermit "It's the Muppet Telethon" and they break into the theme song, you feel transported back to the classic 70s TV series. The movie…
What makes this movie such a joy to watch is that it feels that the people who made this film really cares about the muppets and everything feels from the heart. It never feels like a cash grab which was anyones first thought when they heard this movie get made.
A wonderful reintroduction for these characters. Hilarious, touching, the perfect tone and wonderful performances by the human actors. This was an absolute joy to watch. The musical numbers were fantastic and the opening musical sequence sets the tone. One of my favorite Muppets movies and an incredibly happy nostalgic trip.
