Brett McKenzie's Oscar-winning 'Man or Muppet' penmanship elevates this new generation Muppet movie from good to great. This film deserves to be in everyone's family DVD entertainment section. Characterisation is adorable and the arc of the story is competent and absorbing.
Wow who would have thought that the best musical numbers and self referential humour would be in "The Muppets". What a fun fun picture and an obvious labour of love for those involved. From the first notes of the first song I was totally hooked. If only real life was full of musical numbers. Didn't realize just how much I loved the muppets until reliving them tonight. Segal and Adams both pitch perfect here.
I would've loved this movie as a child. I would've seen it approximately 7 times in the theater. I would've dipped into my piggy bank and gone to the videostore to rent the VHS as soon as it came out. I would've wished for the VHS for my birthday or christmas. I would've watched it over and over again untill the plastic strip inside the tape melted. Too bad I've become a cynical asshole. 1 star.
