After a few inconvenient mishaps in the 90s, the Muppets return to lively form in 2011.

I had to watch The Muppets twice before I even liked it.The 1st time I watched The Muppets I HATED it.The 2nd time I picked it up at the local library & I wasn't sure if I should give it another chance.I'm glad I did though because I enjoyed it the 2nd time around.Some songs were way corny especially the 1st 1 & even though I HATE musicals I've loved The Muppets since I was a little kid & that's what helped me sit through it all.The 1 Muppet I wished they would've included but left out was Rizzo The Rat.I wouldn't buy the movie but it's good enough that it's worth taking a look at

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 …

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 …

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?
