The Finest Muppets Film Of Them All

The more I think about it, the more I realize that I never really liked the Muppet films. Don't get me wrong, I love the Muppets themselves, and The Muppets Take Manhattan is one of my all time favorites, but the rest of the Muppet movies haven't quite met my fancy. Alas, this bright new Muppet film, aptly titled The Muppets, was not only a Muppet masterpiece, it's also perfectly fun for even Muppet novices.

In a purposely cheesy and paper thin plot, the Muppets and co must raise 10 million dollars to save the Muppet Studio from being torn down by oil tycoon, Tex Richman. The only way to do this: Put on a show! (Of course!) But will the new wave of audience members, who have long since forgotten the Muppets, fall in love with them again?

The Muppets is not only a practice in nosta...

The Muppets review

Walter, a huge Muppets fan, lives with his human brother Gary (Jason Segel). Tex Richman (Chris Cooper), an oil tycoon who has plans of drilling to the Muppet's theater's expense, was overheard by Walter. He tries to look for Kermit to explain the dilemma of raising $10 million to repurchase the theater. Kermit tries to assemble the gang for an important show. Not much impressive camera work or cinematography except for the travels. Soundtrack was classic with some new cuts. Humor was sometimes too childish though mostly funny. Unfortunately, you can't have Segel lead a film of this magnitude, so the most interesting parts were the Muppets themselves. Cooper impressive as always even for a wacky antagonist. Screenplay despite its certain coyness, has its moments: Kermit: "Maybe yo...

I must admit, I'm a bit biased. I'm a huge fan of the Muppets and Jim Henson in general. My rating reflects that. But, I loved the memories that this film brought back. And I loved the general feeling of nostalgia. Jason Segal, who helped write the film, brought an Aptowian presence to the film. I thought the inside jokes and what some might call, cheesy, humor added to the film. I also loved the little gags, like major plot points just being told to us. And, then, another character tells us that someone just told us a major plot point. Brilliant! But, most of all, it was fun. And isn't that what a good movie should be. I mean, who wants to sit through 100 hours of Ben-Hur (I happen to like Ben-Hur) when they can watch The Muppets?

Not the Greatest Muppet Movie Ever

It's a good thing Jason Segel didn't go with his original idea for this film's title: The Greatest Muppet Movie ever. It isn't close to being that, but that doesn't mean it isn't an enjoyable and nostalgic throwback to remembering the past films of the franchise. Segel, for his part, and Amy Adams throw themselves into the material with energetic exuberance that carries a lot of the film's slower parts. The cameos are great, but I think that less may have been more with the cameos in the past films and that isn't the case here (there's a celebrity telethon - an excuse to pointlessly show a few famous faces without many laughs.) The best cameo, actually, hands down, is Muppet Walter's human counterpart, shown in Walter's reflection in a mirror. The songs themselves are fun, but lack t...

A Unique Movie That Proves Disney Still Has It

The Muppets is a unique movie and I liked it. So far, it is one of the best movies of 2011. It does have its downsides, but is very enjoyable.

The Story: Keep in mind that this is a family film, so nothing can be too complicated. It is very limited, but I found it cool that a guy, who doesn't know he is a muppet, wants to be a muppet. His travels to Hollywood are well done and I really liked the set pieces. So not bad.

The Style/Cinematography: Can't ask for too much here, but I think it was well done. Just when i was about to get bored with a song or a scene, the movie would cut perfectly to something else. Also, plot points were told to the audience when things were a little too obvious, which I liked. It was unique enough to keep me interested. Also, the scenes in L.A. were nice ...
