“On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, his brother Gary (Jason Segel) and Gary’s girlfriend Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theatre and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage a telethon and raise the $10 million needed to save the theatre, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. With signature celebrity cameos, Disney’s “The Muppets” hits the big screen Nov. 23, 2011.”
I LOVE the Muppets, have since I was a little girl. So when I was given the chance to pre-screen the new Muppet movie I couldn’t wait. I was a little scared they might have changed them too much since it’s been a long time since the last movie but I was very happily impressed with how they stuck with the same feel of the old Muppets.
As usual there was tons of cheesy music and dancing. Along with many celebrity guest appearances. You have to watch close to catch them all. In fact I’m going again this weekend to see it another time and I bet I’ll see more celebs I didn’t see the first time. This movie was stinkin’ funny too. At one point I couldn’t stop laughing that I thought I was going to pass out. LOL or should I say “maniacal laugh”.(go watch the movie and you’ll get that joke)
I have to say my favorite part is the celeb they got for the “Muppet of a Man” for Walter. I wont give it away but if you watch shows like “Big bang” or “How I Met Your Mother” you’ll see what I mean by funny.
If you’ve never seen or heard of the Muppets and love a good comedy I think you might like this movie. If you know the Muppets I think you’ll love this movie and love going back in time with everyone.
Also be on the look out. There might be some questioned answered like, “Will Kermit and Miss Piggy ever be together?” or “What would Animal be like without his drums?” or maybe “are you a Muppet or a man?” (I know sometimes I wish I was a Muppet or at least got to hang out with them)
For a family friendly, funny movie, I give this an A+ and I hope you’ll go see it too.
I was given free tickets to the pre-screening in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not asked to write a personal review but to be honest.
