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…
I don't see how anyone who loved Henson's vision could love this movie or think it had good writing and good voice acting. Sadly Kermit and the gang died when Henson did.
Loved it! I had a smile on my face the entire film!
Everything you could possibly hope for in a Muppet movie, and then some.
Perhaps it shouldn't be surprising that a film about characters who are undisguisedly played by weirdly unexpressive puppets could form such a fine self reflexive farce of cinematic artifice, but I'm genuinely shocked by how good this is each time I view it. It's also a hilarious satire/tribute of virtually the entire gamut of Hollywood genre tropes, in the vein of Pee Wee's Big Adventure. I suspect a whole short essay could be written entirely about that utterly brilliant 'Am I a Muppet or a Man' sequence alone.
This is the way you bring the Muppets back. Slapstick, satire, parody, big dance numbers, lights, cameras, special. It's a movie with heart and you can tell the people behind it really love the Muppets. And it's funny too.
The Muppets (2011) is a great start to rebooting the Muppets. And it can easily be considered as the best out of any of the movies. You have catchy musical numbers, great character dynamics, and a balance of breaking the fourth wall jokes. This movie is a reason in why I love the Muppets and everything about them.
“It’s time to play the music.”
Nobody was more excited than I was to hear that, at long last, we were getting a new Muppets movie worthy of a theatrical release with great talent behind and in front of the camera. The last great movie featuring the gang was, arguably, The Muppet Christmas Carol and it had been a horrible slide downhill since that shining star of Muppety greatness.
“It’s time to light the lights.”
Okay, some people were probably a bit more excited than I was but let’s just not argue with the fact that I was very, VERY excited. I love The Muppets. I have done since I was a child. If you don’t like The Muppets then,…
Madness and mayhem, all too often interrupted by saccharine moments and corny speeches about the Importance of Friendship.
It's a movie that seems to think irony means never having to say you're sorry: everything's served up with such broad nudges and winks, that it seems to cover itself against criticisms of sentimentality by throwing it's hands in the air and exclaiming 'You didn't actually think we were serious? We were only pretending to be sentimental!'
Nice try, but it doesn't quite work that way and the film could have done with less touchy-feely stuff and more explosions.
As someone who didn't grow up in America a while ago, the Muppets have always been a bit of a mystery to me. From the little snippets I've seen here and there over the years I couldn't figure out if it's a kids thing or a grownup thing.
And after seeing the movie I can safely say that I still have no clue. At times it seems ridiculously childish ad then they'll do a more mature joke or two.
Whatever it is, I didn't like it.
