The Muppets

The Muppets

They're closer than you think

Release Date: Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Rating: Rated PG

On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds.

To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino house 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.

Pure, unadulterated nostalgia. Brought me back 20 years and made me feel like a kid all over again. That being said, as a film it has it's share of pacing, structure flaws. Very enjoyable for audience of adults who grew up with these characters, but I don't know how kids will be able to keep up with the barrage of the dated jokes.
