After the Muppets have been invisible in the cinemas for over 10 years now, so having a new muppet movie come out was a big surprise to me. But now that I've seen it, is my verdict that I think its a fantastic movie that is well worth your time, or do I think that it is a movie that you should definitely avoid at all costs? I actually think, it wasn't as good as I thought it was going to be, and it was kind of a disappointment. The film does very good at pulling at your heart strings and make you feel sorry for what happens to the characters, even if there are moments that are a bit iffy in the feelings. The pace of the film is very slow at some parts and it doesn't entertain as much as the past Muppet movies. I don't think it is a bad movie, but it doesn't give as much payoff as it could've been, especially for another Muppet film that I've been waiting to see in the theaters for over 10 years. Its good for kids, and you might be entertained by it, but overall it isn't the best Muppet movie, but it is good, but it isn't the best film I've seen this year.

What seemed to me like a nice return of the crew that gave puppetry a whole new meaning. Need I say more?

The Muppets

From all the throwback to all the cameos, The Muppets is a single minded movie that is not only for the kids but for all the fans that grew up watching them.

good addition to the story and cast in a typical muppet caper

The Muppets was one i've been waiting for a long time to see, and it didn't disappoint. Catchy musical numbers, a character rich, heartfelt plot, and nice special effects put this movie at the top of my favorites. Go see it. Now.

I didn't grow up with the muppets or anything, so feel free to hate my review, but I still didn't like it...

Loved it. Loved it. Loved it. Anyone who doesn't, must have killed their inner child many years ago. I feel sad for you. Dear Frank Oz, stop being bitter because you weren't asked to do everything. I know Jim is happy.

So the old gang is back and Kermit the frog is always in charge to make sure his friends are all good it's a good movie I really think kids should see it, and when you see the movie if you have any favorite Muppet character you can see it when you watch the movie now my favorite is kermit the frog!

A great movie! a little bit too cutesy for a muppet movie, but it's really fun. The songs are great and will probably get stuck in your head.

I have never hated a muppet as much as I despised Walter. What a corporatist little runt, far more soulless and money-grubbing than even Tex Richman. I didn't buy his "sweetness" for a minute. Nor did I care for any of these self-indulgent celebrity cameos taking screen time away from my favorite muppets. I was kind of hoping those evil muppets from Labyrinth or at least The Dark Crystal would come in and fucking eat Walter, Jason Segel and Amy Adams, those anti-Muppetic cocksuckers.

An exceptional take on a Muppets movie that was full of laughs and many outstanding songs. The Muppets also added a few new characters that fit right in with the fun and made the movie very enjoyable throughout. An awesomely enjoyable good time.

The Muppets (2011) - brings back the beloved Jim Henson creations and puts them in a whole new batch of funny and surprisingly heartfelt situations. It's a perfect love letter to those who are fans of the Muppets and even if your aren't familiar or a major fan, don't worry because this movie still works as a stand alone film. The heart is probably what works the most as it shows what the characters have been going through since they went their separate ways. They keep this theme going of the world moving on and the fans forgetting about the Muppets for who they used to be which can have it's emotional moments that fans and no fans will surely empathize with. The movie also keeps it's campy style humor which is very common in the Muppet movies. I find it the most funny when they break the 4th wall or when the make fun of their own intentional inconsistencies. Your favorite Muppet pals are still the same as before and they still keep respect to what their personalities are. They also feature a new Muppet named Walter who is the main character and is a huge fan of the Muppets. He's very likable and his loyalty really helps bring the gang back together. Like many other Muppet movies, there are a lot of celebrities both main and cameos. In short, all of them do a great job and they really understand the feel of being in a campy movie. A lot of the cinematography is shot beautifully and it works the best during the emotional song sequences. It also works in when the characters finally get the show going in the third act which is a lot of fun. The overall feel of the film is so happy and bright, it almost feels like something that "Sesame Street" would try to replicate. The music is catchy and a lot of fun. A lot of the songs are bouncy and energetic like "Life's a happy song" which is my personal favorite. Other songs like "Pictures in my head can be very heartfelt and will surely have Muppet fans drowning in tears. The Muppets have come back in a whole new limelight and are even better than they ever were. If Jim Henson was still alive, I'm sure he'd be proud of Disney for respecting something that was special to him as it was special to millions of other people (A)

Honestly, one of the best movies I've seen in 2011 and I can't get it out of my head.

Sebagai salah satu penikmat film musikal, beberapa opening act yang ditampilkan film ini sebetulnya memiliki lagu-lagu yang menarik. Entah kenapa, menurut saya, beberapa adegan-adegan tersebut kurang mengena, sehingga mungkin akan mudah terlupakan.

This movie is funny and nostalgic, you and your kids can have a great time watching this film.
