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.
"..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?
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…
Though this film has revitalised the Muppets franchise, I can't help but to notice it's not about the Muppets: it is, in fact, a love letter to the fans.
Jason Segel has successfully brought back The Muppets, with a heartfelt script, and a beautiful soundtrack delivered by Flight of The Conchords' Bret McKenzie.
I thought this film was cute. It followed the same old "Muppets lose their treasured theatre, Muppets scheme to get theatre back" plot but it was still enjoyable and fun. I enjoyed the 50s wholesome American parody style, and the cast was really good with some great cameos. It also did well in introducing a new generation of children to the Muppets! Nothing on the original films though
I'm not a fan of the Muppets or the cast, but this wasn't bad.
That's the first word that comes to my mind when I think of this film. Likeable. It doesn't have the heart of the likes of Muppet Treasure Island, and certainly nowhere close to that of Muppet Christmas Carol, but as a return to the theatrical arena, it does the job, and is solidly entertaining. A decent, if unspectacular, entry into the Muppet canon.
Los Teleñecos, después de años en el olvido y de películas cada vez más mediocres, regresaron en 2011 de la mano de Disney, con uno de los films más autoparódicos, metalingüísticos y autoconscientes de los últimos tiempos. Guiños y homenajes constantes a sus anteriores entregas, bromas que juegan con la lógica interna de la historia, todo maquillado de película infantil y que, aún así, es absolutamente recomendable para todos los públicos, tanto si alguna vez fuiste fan de los Muppets como si no. Salvo que no tengas alma, o la tengas sumida en la más oscura podredumbre, claro.
Y para colmo, con canciones a cuál mejor y, sobre todo, más pegadiza.
Una "feel good movie" de libro.
Great way to bring The Muppets back into the modern era. Has its heart firmly in the right place at all times, even when it shifts focus too much in Segel & Adams' direction. Also has some very obvious edits here and there that make the film seem choppy. Still, genuine to a fault.
I haven't had that much fun at the movies in a long time. The biggest thing I got from this film was sincerity. I could tell that Jason Segel et al really care for the Muppets and know who they are. That sincerity and understanding streaks across the screen like Gonzo being shot out of a cannon. Loved all the in-jokes and jabs. Especially loved the jabs at the cynical pop culture that had left the Muppets on the shelf in the first place. It just goes to show that there are some happy, positive things that modern cynicism and irony can't overshadow.
While I've only recently come to love and appreciate the Muppets for what they are and represent, The Muppets was still able to do what it set out to do: Make the Muppets relevant and entertaining in the modern decade.
The Muppets is about a man named Gary (Jason Segel), his girlfriend Mary (Amy Adams) and his brother Walter (who happens to be a Muppet). The brothers are big fans of the Muppets, so when they hear that Muppet Studios is being torn down by evil oil corporation CEO Tex Richman (Chris Cooper), they decide to help Kermit get the old gang back together to raise enough money to save it. I know it sounds like an overly-recycled plot but…
