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…
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…
A hilarious script is punctuated by a catchy soundtrack & the crazy antics of a colorful cast. Great nostalgic family fun!
So many famous faces appeared in this film and I had a great time identifying all of them that the plot wasn't very important. Very predicable but cute to see The Muppets again. Never liked The Muppets but catchy songs like "Am I a Man?" and "Mnah Mnah" made it fun and interesting.
With the help of some new friends, Kermit reunites the old gang in order to save the Muppet Studios from being demolished by an evil oil tycoon (played by the excellent Chris Cooper, who even breaks into a short rap).
This is a loving tribute to the Muppet shows/films of old. Jason Segel and team do the Muppet name proper justice, and although the story has a predictable outcome, it's exactly what we fans expect.
Quite a few laughs. Very formulaic, but they know this and play up to it. Enjoyable.
Here's the thing with The Muppets (2011), it was a great way to introduce The Muppets to younger audiences and it was an alright movie. I saw this in the cinemas when it was first released and I remeber feeling that it just didn't feel like the originals.
The Muppets (2011) is about two 'brothers' called Gary and Walter. Gary is a normal human being and Walter is a Muppet though nobody raises an eyebrow. Walter has been a huge fan of The Muppets for years, ever since he was really young and when Gary and his girlfriend Mary are having a 10th anniversary holiday they bring Walter with them to see The Muppet studios. When he gets there he…
Upon release, it was such a relief that they hadn't messed up the big screen reboot of The Muppets. A few years and a sequel later things don't seem as flawless but there's still so much joy to be had. Now, being over familiar with the soundtrack, many of the non musical moments still appear as a surprise but this is a musical and it's those songs that really bring a smile to your face. Man or Muppet may remain the most well known but Me Party, Life's A Happy Song, Let's Talk About Me and Rainbow Connection are the real highlights. Mah Na Mah Na is just the icing on the cake.
