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!!!!!!!
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 do not condone a man to have sexual relations with a muppet.
It's like beastiality when you think about it.
In the first, maybe, fifteen minutes of The Muppets I kept feeling like I was going to cry! I didn't forget about you, Kermit!!!! It doesn't help that I recently watched a "goodbye" special dedicated to Jim Henson from the early 1990s, shortly after his death.
The comedy was pretty funny at times and I actually enjoyed the catchy songs as well! There were a lot of references to various 1980s pop culture that may have been a bit too much in this nostalgia fueled film, but I still enjoyed it. I just really want to rewatch all the Muppet movies now.
Is it just me or is Walter not SUPER ADORABLE?!?
Yorn desh born, der ritt de gitt der gue,
Orn desh, dee born desh, de umn,
bork! bork! bork!
... At which point, upon completion of my happy little tune, I attempt to cook a live turkey with a toothbrush, a circular saw, and a shotgun.
Here's hoping this movie has kicked off a string of quality muppet films to come.
Still plays like a weird fever dream of mine. It's not perfect but I'm happy it exists.
Fun movie, I don't really think I saw the muppets as a child so I had no particular sentimentality for it. But it had some good gags and songs.
A delightful return of The Muppets after so long! A lovely post-modern revival completely knowing what it's doing and that it is, after all, a Muppet show movie.
Loved all the celebrity cameos mimicking the original and the ending can't have failed to put a smile on even the hardest person's face. Let there be more!
"Maybe you don't need the whole world to love you, you know? Maybe you just need one person."
I wish I was a muppet. Their world is so happy and friendly and full of adventure. And it's hilarious.
"You wanna get back together?"
I would be a manly muppet, lemme tell ya.
I repeat: fart shoes.
Another movie I wanted to like but wound up being disappointed by.
A very Sunday afternoon kind of movie.
An unchallenging Sunday afternoon watch, The Muppets is an attempt to bring the beloved 70s TV characters into 2011. Ironically, it feels a little dated, to the point where it's actually jarring when someone mentions the internet or Selena Gomez appears to remind you it's the 21st century. The whole "wasn't the past great?" message of the movie is sweet and well-intentioned but does give it the weird feeling that it's playing entirely for the over-30s market; something at odds with the slight and kid-friendly plotting. That said, it's cute and colorful throughout, there are several genuine laughs to be had and you'd have to have a heart of stone to not find it just a little bit delightful.
This was a really fun movie, had a lot of heart and the writing was consistently funny and engaging.
