The Longest Blooper Reel Ever Made (In Muppet History*) *We Think
Movies attempting to retrieve cherished nuggets of pop culture often stumble, either by appealing solely to the die-hard minutia enthusiasts or clunking up the batter with unnecessary additions to the base material. (Enough with the human love triangles, get to the giant robots fighting.) Thankfully, this revival of Jim Henson's beloved characters gets the formula delightfully right, providing a googly-eyed nostalgia trip for adults while also retaining the original's sense of bright (and mildly subversive) wonder. All that's missing is a cameo from Shields and Yarnell, really. Kicking off with a boffo musical number, the story follows Walter (voice of Peter Linz), a small-town boy with a uniquely personal affection for the long-retired Muppets. (OK, he's made of felt.) Teaming up with his brother (Jason Segel, who also co-scripted) and the local schoolteacher (Amy Adams), they attempt to get Kermit, Fozzie, and the gang back together in order to save their studio from an evil oil baron (Chris Cooper, going all in). Director James Bobin (Flight of the Conchords) does a marvelous job of updating and honoring his material, weaving sly references to days gone by (the contents of Kermit's rolodex are a particular delight) into the mix of songs, celebrity cameos, and barn-broad puns that gave the original show its bubbly kick. (Fans of Animal and the Chickens will not go home disappointed.) Even the moments that don't quite work land with a cornball brio that feels wholly of a piece with Henson's universe. The result is a true family movie that still brings on the blissful, uncomplicated grins days after viewing. No matter what Statler and/or Waldorf might say, the show goes on. --Andrew Wright

The Muppets is based on the clever (and somewhat correct) premise that the once popular Muppets are now a group of washed up has-beens, long since pushed out of the limelight by awful shows like `Punch Teacher'. Sweetly cheerful couple Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) take Gary's brother (and Muppet) Walter on a trip to Hollywood. As long-time Muppet fanatics, they pay a visit to their heroes' famous studio in L.A (actually The Muppets was filmed at Borehamwood Studios in Hertfordshire), only to be horrified that the theatre has fallen into neglect and disrepair and about to be demolished for profit by oil tycoon Tex Richman (Chris Cooper). Intent on raising the money to buy the theatre back, Walter and Gary seek out Kermit, now dejected and living alone and in the past, in a bid to get the gang back together for one more show. The group have had mixed fortunes since they went their separate ways.Read more ›
I love the characters as they are so cheerful and full of life. The new movie features most of the original characters ( Kermit, Fuzzie, Gonzo, Ralf, Miss Piggy, Animal and so on) and new characters. The characterisation is excellent,as each muppet reflect their own distinctive personality. It really livens the film. The human characters compliment the muppet characters perfectly. Amy Adams and Jason Segel plays their parts beautifully and so charmingly, as you can tell this type of the movie is their main forte.
The plot is about the closure of a theatre, where the muppets share special memories.Gary (Jason Segel) and brother Walter embark on a trip to Hollywood and find out the muppets are in trouble. There is a connection between the brothers and the muppets as it becomes clear in the film. The two brothers help them out by reuniting the muppets, as they have headed to new pastures in life. A ruthless businessman threatens to close down the theatre until the the desparate muppets can raise certain amount to save the theatre and re-light the happy days remembered from earlier films. It relieves the nostalgic days that made Muppets a household name. The muppets are on a special mission.Read more ›
The story follows two brothers, Walter (a Muppet) and Gary (Jason Segel) as they embark on a journey to resurrect the Muppet entertainment troupe in an attempt to stop the old studio being knocked down by a boo hiss evil corporate boss. It's a well scripted piece that allows us oldies to revel in nostalgia, with quite a few references to past glories, and will hook in a young audience of fresh Muppeteers. It has a frenetic, fast paced humour and delivers jokes and laughs at a machinegun pace. There are big song and dance numbers, romance, Muppets, plot, jokes, and a whole helter skelter of good entertaining stuff. You'd have to have a heart of pure granite not to be entertained by this great film. It delivers a great message, that though the world has moved on, the gentler entertainments of yesteryear are still funny, and still entertaining.
It's a Muppet Classic, and after some of the previous films (where the essential characters of each muppet was subjugated to the needs of the character they were playing in a particular story) it's great to see the Muppets back to what they once where, an all round great entertainment troupe putting on a show.
5 stars, this is a must see.
