The Muppets

More for 30-50 year olds who grew up watching The Great Muppet Caper over and over, and less for the 5 year olds of now. However, let's face it, 5 year olds will love anything.

Kermit tries to bring back his has-been act... which is kind of reflective of reality... too reflective in fact. It made me a little sad, until I realized I didn't really care and that if I wanted to see a Muppet movie, I know where to find one or two. It's not like the world is in dire need of another Muppet movie....

However, as a Muppet fan, I dragged my husband to see this movie. He LOVED it. He laughed so hard. It was a very funny, charming, and at times ridiculous movie. Take your spouse, take your kids, and take your parents and your neighbors and go see this movie.

I enjoyed the references to the other Muppet movies. That's something other Muppet movies never did, and it was kind of a fun addition... which is weird 'cause I usually hate when movies do that.

Jack Black was hilarious. And Gonzo and his chickens are awesome as always. Animal will never stop cracking me up. 80's Robot was totally gnarly. It's always nice to see the Muppets, even if they get a little dull sometimes, (Christmas Carol and Treasure Island, I'm looking at you.)

Now's the part where you rate your favorite Muppet movies. Ready? GO!

  1. I found the movie to be a perfect homage to the original muppets (even though most of the original voices and actors were replaced). I have to admit though some parts of the movie had me laughing sensationably loud and considering i pretty much dragged my feet to the theatres to see it thats a pretty awesome thing for a movie to accomplish. And i wasnt impresed by any of the previous muppet movies this one was the most enjoyable!
