(click picture for trailer!)
I’ve been waiting for AGES to see this movie, i have seen very little episodes of The Muppet Show when i was little thanks to reruns but that still didn’t conceal the fact that this was one of my Most Anticipated Films of 2011.
In This film, Muppets Megafan, Walter accompanies his Human brother Gary (i say human because oddly enough, walter is a muppet himself) and his Girlfriend Mary (lol it rhymed) to Los Angeles for their 10th anniversary. While they’re there they take a tour on the old, broken down, muppet studio. There Walter accidentally uncovers an evil Oilman named Richman (ironic no?) and his plans to tear down the studio so he can siphon the area of it’s oil.
So with the help of Gary and Mary (lol) they confront Kermit the Frog and convince him to round up the old gang for on last gig in an attempt to raise $10,000,000 to keep the studio.
The Muppets is the first Theatrical release in 12 YEARS, The last being Muppets from Space i believe. This is my first Muppets film, i know, embarrassing. I absolutely LOVED this. The comedy was spot on, i was laughing almost the entire time, my friends and i would even rewind specific parts just to watch them again. I loved the slapstick humor, it reminded me of Mel Brooks old films :D
The wide list of Celebrity cameos was very awesome and every appearance was so random you couldn’t help but smile.
The musical numbers were very catchy, i might even get the soundtrack soon haha
Heartwarming, feel good comedy, adventurous, it’s one of those films that proves you don’t need loads of profanity to make a great comedy. Mel Brooks showed that, Monty Python troupe showed that, and The Muppets show that
