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…
Reboot has retained a quorum of its cleverness: the stage name "Moppets" used for scuzzy Muppet doppelgangers, traveling by map or proceeding by montage. Yet, Kermit entreats the kids to do better, to find better entertainment, and while he isn't being sincere, he may be right. There's something about this entire reboot that feels shallow, as if the reemergence of the Muppets is enough. There's a joke on how the Muppets are a dead franchise, by having a studio executive tell us about the contemporary state of the Muppets as a dead franchise, and we're supposed to laugh cause the franchise is clearly making money again. Other attempts to update the humor fall flat, e.g. Chris Cooper raps. Nostalgia man.
The Muppets fall very much into a 'love it or hate it' category. Few people are indifferent. Ostensibly a kids puppet show Henson and co layered in levels of self awareness for the adult audience that made it work on more levels. Only Pixar have ever done it as well.
It had been many years since the Muppet movies had been big events and in considering a new film there were bound to be concerns around their relevance and the willingness of a modern audience to accept their wholesome approach in a more cynical world. The answer was to make the film about those very subjects.
Walter is puppet with a human brother Gary (Jason Segel). When Gary and long…
The Muppets were a little before my time, but I still have a few hazy nostalgic memories of them floating around my brain (does anybody else remember the animated 'Muppet Babies'?). Though predictable in all sorts of ways, and lightweight in all sorts of others, this film hit all the right notes, told all the right jokes, and had me giggling from beginning to end. If you're not smiling when you come out, I'll be very surprised.
This movie is a nostalgist's dream. Being a little nostalgic, this was fun, I really liked Walter's story especially his ending. Jack Black nearly made the movie for me, his performance alone is 5 stars. But anyways, it's a fun movie, has some cool cameos and is a nice kids/nostalgists movie.
I don't even need to say why this movie rocks.

I remember vividly when I heard there was going to be a new Muppets movie. It wasn't quite the reaction I had in 1997 when I found out there was going to be a new "Star Wars" movie, but it wasn't too far off. The Muppets are very near and dear to my heart, and always have been. When I excitedly shared this news with people I knew, I found that most of my friends and family had kind of ... moved on.
It was good preparation for when this sweet, delightful movie finally came out. *I* saw an adorable, gentle picture full of sweet humor and great songs, as did my…
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.
