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.
"I always dreamed we'd be back here."
"Dreams? Those were nightmares?"
Songs are pretty good and none of them were really bad or annoying. Can't help but love Jason Segel, he's awesome. Not amazing, but was pretty enjoyable. I always liked the old cynical muppets in the balcony criticizing everything. Plus celebnapping Jack Black was hilarious. Good clean family fun. It knows it's ridiculous and a movie and acknowledges it. But who's in a relationship with Amy Adams for 10 years before proposing? That's unrealistic.
This would probably be a solid, "not perfect or even great but still solid" 3.5 stars were it not for just how poorly conceived the idea of Walter is. By putting him at the center of the movie, Segal commits one of the worst crimes you can commit in a movie by making the most bland, least interesting character your protagonist and audience surrogate. This is most painfully obvious when they take what should be the emotional peak of the movie (the whole group of original Muppets singing "The Rainbow Connection") and place it right before what they perceive to be the emotional climax of the movie, which is Walter finally finding his "talent," which is...whistling? OK? Don't care.
I didn't love it like everyone else. It was certainly well-acted/puppet-ed, well-scripted, and well-produced and directed. Overall, though, it felt fake to me. It presented the Muppets as if they'd been gone since the heyday of The Muppet Show. They acknowledged the first Muppet movie, but they seemed to forget that they've had several theatrical films since then. No mention of The Great Muppet Caper, Muppet Christmas Carol, Muppet Treasure Island, or Muppets in Space. Also nothing about Muppet Babies or the fact that the muppets have appeared on Sesame Street and in advertisements constantly.
Basically, I'm saying that the Muppets never left, but this movie wants me to believe that they've been missing since the 80's, and now it's…
Great family fun, pure cinematic joy from start to finish, some of the songs grated for me but I recognize that is my problem.
In the begging, of the movie there a guy who name Garry. And also has a Muppet when he was a childhood he had him the whole time and also when he was a child and they were little kids, they grow so fast. The Muppet who was name Walter
Middle- My favorite of the movie is when they try to reach for 10 million in order to save the show because the Muppet need that money in order get back in the show because without that money they are going to be broken.
End- What did I like, about the end of the movie is that the Muppet got the show back and also Kermit the frog step outside of the those door and the media took picture of the Muppet. They were taking picture of the Muppet because, they got they show back as they wanted. I like this movie because it is a good movie
I liked it
This story was pretty adorable, but the movie was slightly slow, and I found myself waiting for it to end. I loved every song, and the acting was pretty good, but something about the structure made the time go by very slowly.
For those of us old enough to remember the muppet show, this is a fun nostalgic return to our childhood, but I wonder if kids today are just so modernised that they can accept it. Most of the cameos are only going to be known by adults, but good old fashioned fun for those who appreciate it.
A wonderful piece of cinema. Full of joy and not at any point patronising or cynical. Magnificent.
