on the road again, just can't wait to get on the road again...
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.
There's a kind of magic that during this period of popcorn capeflix and dreary thrillers we can watch a movie filled with so much heart and love that it's about to burst. The Muppets is pure joy from beginning to end, and not only celebrates the legacy of Jim Henson but of the wonder of cinema as well.
Revisiting the film with my almost-2 year old, I'm reminded at just how close to perfection this film is. THE MUPPETS amazingly balances nostalgia, meta context, and just goofy, good ol' fashion comedy. I really love how this film is a not-so-subtle commentary about how Disney bought the Muppet franchise and didn't really do anything with it: mirroring the disrepair of the Muppet Studios & distant relationships between our Muppet heroes. And the film plays (almost) all the right notes for long term fans: the reference to the "standard rich and famous contract" from the original MUPPET MOVIE, references to The Muppet Show (longtime Muppet fans will appreciate that Walter discovers the Muppets during an episode of the Show with guest…
Brilliant, though the first half was much better than the second.
Still humming the tunes this morning.
For me the highlights of the film were two adorably ridiculous musical numbers:
* "Am I a man or a muppet?" in which Gary (Jason Segel) and a muppet named Walter both go through an existential crises.
* A scene in which the villain (Chris Cooper) randomly starts rapping all kinds of amazing lyrics and finishes it off by rapping "Little Muppets it's time to give up your dream".
Other than that, the film is kind of cute, but I'm a bit disappointed. Was hoping this film would be funnier and a bit more quirky. I really do enjoy Amy Adams in these sort of roles though, she's great at them.
Your favourite puppet pals are back along with the fabulous Jason Segel and Amy Adams. Great film for the family with music, comedy and cameos of Jack Black, Selena Gomez and many more. In my opinion one of the best live action films to come out of Disney in a while.
Wer „Die Muppets“ im Kino verpasst hat, muss den Film nun auf Blu-ray nachholen. Ein guter Witz jagt den nächste, der neue Muppet-Film ist einfach wunderbar und die Lieder machen auch noch gute Laune. Wenn einer eingestaubten Franchise ein großartiges Comeback gelungen ist, dann sind es die Muppets. Bei solch einem tollen Film mit einer Prise Nostalgie, braucht es kein 3D und eine modernen Computereffekte. Die Muppets sind liebenswert und ein muss und zwar genauso wie sie sich hier präsentieren.
Good movie along with second one only i saw in cinemas between in February 2012 and April 2014. the songs was good
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
