The Muppets - Movie Review

The Muppets are finally back on the big screen after a 12 year haitus. The story follows Walter, a huge Muppet fan, and his brother Gary (Jason Segel) who must help the Muppets raise $10 million to save the Muppet Theatre from being torn down by Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) who plants to drill for oil underneath the theater. The Muppets have all gone their seperate ways but Walter reunites them and together they put on one last show.

I'm a huge Muppets fan, so as soon as I heard there was a new Muppets movie coming out, I knew I had to watch it. I found the movie a little cheesy but hilarious. There is a lot of humor only adults would get and like most Muppets movies, there are plenty of celebrity cameos including Sarah Silverman, Jack Black and Zach Galifianakis. It's a great movie to reminisce about the Muppets and their history as it includes the original theme song of The Muppet Show, which aired on tv in the 1970's and 80's. Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy are always really fun to watch and the songs are catchy (Mahna Mahna plays in the credits!). Go watch it!

The Muppets comes out in theatres tomorrow, November 23rd.
