218. "Camera falls from airplane and lands in pig pen-MUST WATCH END!!"
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.
Rainbow Connection makes me cry everytime
There's more joy, originality and humor in the final Muppet Show sequence than in a single episode of the 2015-16 TV show.
A beautifully heartwarming piece of nostalgia that comes the closest of all the sequels to capturing the magic of the original Muppet Movie. There are occasional jokes that don't land and I personally wish the movie had cut off just before the final song, but the majority of this movie is BRILLIANT with a stellar array of meta-jokes and musical numbers to keep even a casual fan entertained. That's because even if you're not familiar with the Muppets or what they're about, the movie brims with enough of their laughter, joy, and perseverance to perform in the face of failure for you to catch on quick.
This movie is, in all sincerity, genius.
In a world that is much more complicated than the world the Muppets used to entertain, the gang and their schtick is still relevant. Rather than changing their style to fit modern audiences (which they did eventually do, to mixed success, in the recently-cancelled-too-soon Muppets TV show), they double down on the joy that can only come from an innocence of nostalgia. Everything is exactly like we left it, following the tragic death of Jim Henson. Some things have gotten shifted in the attic, but before long, the gang is back together and everything is just as musical as we remember.
But that is not the genius of this film. It's some emotional…
An extremely fun revival of the Muppets. The music is great, and I love the show they put on so much. Jack Black is fantastic.
I really enjoyed this film. I like most of the Muppet movies and this one was certainly more contemporary. I am a Jason Segel fan and find him hilarious, but I just didn't care for his acting in this film. He was a little childish and whiney and that put me off a little. The puppets were fresh, bright and clean and the voices were a great match. I really liked Chris Cooper as the villain and thought he did a great job. Jack Black was great too. It really does bring back memories watching this film. Especially during The Muppet Show montage. A good homage paid to Jim Henson's creations with hopefully more in the future. I think the Muppets are going to be loved by kids for generations. I mean, what's not to love?
"Am I a man or am I a Muppet?"
If you don't like the Muppets then you are simply a heartless individual. This movie was a fantastic reintroduction into main culture for the Muppets. It succeeds at being a feel-good family movie that is still enjoyable for all ages with plenty of laughs and some superb music (which, in my opinion, is what truly makes this movie). Jason Segel and Amy Adams fit well in their supporting roles and the plot is very clever. Overall this is a great family comedy that fits right in with the classic Muppet films of the late 20th century.
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
