“The Muppets” is in theaters now! Here is the official synopsis, the official trailer and my review…
On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. With secret, signature, celebrity cameos, â€œThe Muppetsâ€ is in theaters now!
I was able to take my 3 and 7 year old boys to “The Muppets” and they both loved it! I grew up in the 80′s and remember watching the Muppets as a kid, but had forgotten how funny they are! Sometimes the shows I remember being hilarious aren’t nearly as great after 15 years, but the Muppets are timeless! They were even more funny that I remembered! I always enjoy watching shows that I loved when I was young, with my kids and this is a perfect example. “The Muppets” was made for children and adults of all ages! You might not be laughing at the same things as the kid next to you but I can guarantee you will be laughing! My boy’s favorite part was the “Forget You” by Camilla and the Chickens. I loved the “Man or Muppet” by Jason Segel. It was clever, catchy and I can’t get it out of my head! (I ended up getting the soundtrack as soon as I got home) “The Muppets” was a fantastic movie and I can’t wait until it comes out on DVD so we can watch it again and again!
