The Muppets are Back!
We haven’t heard much from our friends since The Muppets’ Wizard of Oz in 2005, but thanks to the brilliant writing/producing of one Jason Segel, The Muppets return from their 6 year hiatus and bring us an instant classic. THE MUPPETS ARE BACK!!! It may be my love of funny musicals, Jason Segel and Amy Adams, or maybe just my love of the Muppets in general. But I loved The Muppets (2011)! And I’m not the only one, scoring a certified fresh score of 97% on Rotten Tomatoes has to be proof that this Muppet film is the real deal. I don’t care if you have kids or don’t, if you like musicals or not, hell, even if you don’t know who the Muppets are, you should really see this movie.
The Muppets (2011) is full of nostalgic memories of the Muppets glory days, classic musical numbers, bright human actors, and plenty of star studded cameos. The cameos were so well placed and always left you asking yourself, “is that who I thought it was?”. Even NPH had a perfect line while answering phones for the Muppet Telethon, “Yeah, I don’t know why I’m not in it.” NPH can do no wrong. Other cameos included Feist, Dave Grohl, Whoopi Goldberg, Donald Glover, Sarah Silverman, and even Mickey Rooney. Jack Black and Zach Galifianakis play great support roles late in the film also. The Muppets won’t make your abs hurt from laughing, or leave you thinking it was an Oscar award winning masterpiece, it just genuinely made me happy throughout the whole film. I don’t know what else you could ask for? Why wouldn’t you want to smile through an entire movie? Do not wait to experience The Muppets, grab your loved ones or grab yourself (preferably before you’re in the theater), and go see this movie. You can thank me later when your life is a little brighter because of it.
