The Muppets Review

The Muppets Review.

“It’s time to play the music” “It’s time to light the lights” “It’s time to meet the Muppets on the” new Muppets movie tonight!

In a world filled with paranormal, rough, edgy movies, it’s always nice to be able to take the family to see your favorite green frog. I am not saying all the movies that have come out this year are not family friendly, just that it’s nice to have this movie for all ages. I am a fan of another movie series which a movie that came out earlier this month is from, but I would say it has too much bite for the whole family. The Muppets on the other hand is a movie I can 100% without second thought, tell you to go see it with everyone no matter the age.

Now I do have a few things that I think didn’t work out great for this movie, which I am going to point out first so I can end this on a good note with everything else.

Jason Segel didn’t only star in the movie, he wrote it. Now over all I believe he did well at both, I just have a few issues which I am going to list out below.

-There was too much Gary and not enough Muppets in some of the movie.
-The background story for Walter at the start takes a little too long.
-There were a couple parts of the story that I just thought were incomplete.
-Splitting so many storylines didn’t work out, because they took from each other too much. It made parts of the movie seem too broken up.

Okay, that is all of the bad.

12 years after their last movie landed into theaters from Space (Muppets From Space), the Muppets returned to the big screen together again. Kermit was great as always along side Fozzie, Beaker, Dr. Honeydew, Miss Piggy, Swedish Chef, Rowlf, Animal, Pepe, Sam Eagle and the rest of the awesome Muppet gang as well as the newest Muppet Walter. Along side the Muppets were Jason Segel and Amy Adams, who worked wonderfully off of each other. Chris Cooper played the evil Tex Richman who wants to take over Muppet Theater to knock down and drill for oil, with his right hand men Bobo and Uncle Deadly. The cast was FANTASTIC. The music was terrific and the always classic “Rainbow Connection” was in the movie as well and is still the best song of them all.

Now it’s time for my rating system for this review.

Music: A
Cast: A+
Story: A-

Over All Movie: A+

  1. Longtime Muppet fans will undoubtedly have more fun than young ones, but for the most part, it's a witty, delightful romp, that shows you that you can still be funny, without ever being mean still in 2011. Good review. Check out mine when you get the chance.
