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.
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.
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?
An absolute delight! Fun for kids and grownups alike, The Muppets is a feel-good, funny film. There are plenty of good gags; I laughed out loud several times during my viewing. Lots of cameo appearances create some "surprise" moments: Dave Grohl, Neil Patrick Harris, Alan Arkin, Emily Blunt, and Jim Parsons... just to name a few.
A warm and fuzzy (like a Muppet!) movie loaded with fun jokes, big and small: that frog wearing a turtleneck, the Tex Richman rap, the ninja Muppet kidnapping... all pure gold. It's been years since I last watched any of the older Muppets movies, so it was hard to compare. The musical bits were short and sweet and not too numerous, and even those were usually pretty entertaining.
Not very funny.
I always watch the muppets movie and yes, they're all amazing.
Also, this one.
The muppets used to be retired *I guess* but they want to back on business.
So, they're back in kind of cheezy musical ways.
What a whimsical and lovely film.
I cried when they sang rainbow connection.
The reason this film did so well was because all of the heart and love that the star and screenwriter Jason Segel has for this franchise
Promising start. Too much focus on the new guy and the humans. Not enough focus on supporting Muppets. Generic third act. The Muppets making a show isn't interesting enough for this movie.
"Life's a Happy Song" has got to be one of my favourite opening numbers to a film. It's sets the tone and the movie hardly deviates from the happy-go-lucky attitude it promotes. Segel, Adams, and Cooper give it their all, and look like they're having the time of their lives.
The Muppets are still the stars, though. Their humour is always welcoming, never mean, with plenty of sight gags and absurdities. From the moment they do the theme song at the Telethon to the performance of the Rainbow Connection is just great, great stuff. Walter is a pretty good addition to the repertoire.
My only complaint is that it relies on a few too many pop culture jokes that seem dated only 4 years on. Or maybe I'm just out of touch.
This is also a great stoner film. Just sayin'.
I watched "The Muppets," thinking it was going to be terrible but as meta take on the Muppets' legacy, it wasn't bad. Yes Jason Segal makes the same dumb face for the majority of the movie and Walter the Muppet is kind of annoying but if Jason Segal and Amy Adams weren't there it would just be Walter and that would be worse. The actual Muppets are side characters since this is about Walter teaching the Muppets that they are still relevant. The story panders to nostalgia but pretends to be reintroducing the Muppets to kids. I think kids could figure out the deal with the Muppets without context but sure, Jason Segal. Kids don't know what Muppets are but…
I regret watching this. Solely watched it for Emily and Rashida's appearances and I still don't understand how they got them for the movie because it's an actual pieceashit
It's everything you would want in a muppets reboot and more! The Muppets does an excellent job of rebooting The Muppets because it keeps a lot of its nostalgic value while making the Muppets feel new and modern. it's funny, its caring, and it will have you in tears. Once again its everyting you could want in a Muppets movie and more.
