Its time to get things started!
I love The Muppets, I mean who dosent love them, they are a great batch of loveable characters all with their own different personalities and not to mention HILARIOUS!!!
Walter(Peter Linz), Gary(Jason Segel), and Mary(Amy Adams) are going on a trip to L.A. and while they are there they go and visit The Muppet Studios but find out that Tex Richman(Chris Cooper)wants to destroy The Muppet Studios for the oil underground. So its up for our trio to get the muppets together and do one final show to save up money to get back their studios.
I was very excited to see this movie for so long and I finally got to see it today and it was not disappointing. Seeing all these characters that I love back doing what they are doing made me incredibly happy. You can tell Jason Segel is a huge Muppets fan and knew how a Muppet should be because he did a great job writing this film. The jokes were very clever and hilarious and had a lot of charm.
Of course with a Muppet movie you need songs to go along and the songs in the movie are surprisingly really good. I wouldnt mind buying the soundtrack. My favorite song would have to be Life's A Happy Song. A lot of the other songs were catchy and had some songs had their funny moments.
This may be on of the funniest films of the year next to Bridesmaids. The script didnt have a lot of jokes just for kids a lot of them were cleverly written that parents or fans of the Muppets will find very funny. Of course they have jokes that break the 4th wall and here they are hilarious and this movie knows it has musical numbers unlike most musicals that dont even mention them. A great example is after the song Man Or A Muppet which was sung by Gary because of problems with Mary, he mentions how he just sung to her all of his feelings...its hard to describe the joke but its funny
Like most Muppet movies they are a bunch of cameos. The main cameo with the most screen time was an actor who I hate, Jack Black, the one good thing I can say about his cameo is that you see get hurt so that was fine by me. The best cameo is during Man Or A Muppet. A little backstory: I love the show The Big Bang Theory in my opinion its the funniest show on TV and the best part about the show is Jim Parsons as Sheldon, he is hilarious in the role. So during the song Walter starts singing and looks in the mirror and see a human version of him played by Jim Parsons and Jim starts singing and his facial expressions are just amazing that I lost it during that scene.
Overall, I would say The Muppets is one of the best films of the year and probably the most enjoyable film of the year. If you are a big fan of the Muppets you will love this film.
PS The Toy Story short before the movie was very enjoyable and funny. In my opinion it was better then Hawaiian Vacation which was in front of the very disappointing Cars 2.
