About the Film
Muppet domination continues with a hilarious new movie from Walt Disney Studios. Jason Segel, Academy Award®-nominee* Amy Adams and Academy Award®-winner** Chris Cooper join everyone's favorite Muppets and an all-star celebrity cast in a comic adventure for the whole family. While on vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world's biggest Muppet fan, his brother Gary, and friend Mary uncover the diabolical plot of a greedy oil millionaire to destroy the Muppet Theater. Now, the Muppet-loving trio must reunite Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and their friends to stage the greatest Muppet telethon ever and save their beloved theater.
Ironically, this film should be called The Moopets
As a youngster in the 70s and 80s, I was practically weened on The Muppets. In my university student days, I became all nostalgic and re-watched all the shows and movies again. I loved the sense of humour, the underlying adult humour, the imperfections. The Muppets were the best comedy act ever.
This .. monstrosity .. of a film is a highly sanitised version of The Muppets by people who think they know what The Muppets were about. Unfortunately there is very little of The Muppets left in The Muppets. Both technically and script-wise. Technically since practically everything - including the puppets themselves - are contracted out to third parties. The Henson family/Co. have little involvement (ironically the Creature Shop provided the costumes).
The CG removal of arm rods and puppeteers reinforces Disney's approach to clean and sanitised products. Back in the Henson days, practical on-set approaches were used with little post-production work. Watching a Muppet movie or TV show was theatrical. Now it seems the computer is king.
Honestly - do yourselves a favour and go back and watch some of the original Muppet movies (many available here on iTunes). You will notice the difference in both performance and script. The Disney Muppets are not the same anymore.
WOW REALLY WOW
A fun-filled family film!
