    The Muppets must reunite to put on a show and save their theater. Like The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle a few years ago, The Muppets cashes in on its nostalgia, supposing that the audience misses their bygone days. And while I vaguely remember enjoying the show as a child, there isn't much about the original that this film brings back. Whereas The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle had some remarkably funny puns, there isn't much to laugh at here. I chuckled a couple times, mostly at the remarks by the two curmudgeonly spectators, but there weren't any guffaws. Most disappointing were the musical numbers with the exception of Chris Cooper's rap; during her songs it seemed that Amy Adams was forcing a grin, knowing she should look happy. The plot unfolds just as anyone knows it would. Overall, I wasn't impressed by this film, but Muppets fans might find something worth liking if only for the nostalgia.

    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
