The Muppets (2011) Review

The much-loved Muppets are back on the big screen! They must reunite to save their old theatre from a greedy oil tycoon, with the help of three fans.

Walter never felt like he fit in with his life and especially with his brother . . . but that all changed one night when he saw ‘The Muppet’s Show’ on TV. It changed his whole world and he quickly became their biggest fan. Then a trip to LA to see the studio’s it was filmed in is when Walter realises that he must help to stop the studios being sold. Therefore reuniting the Muppets to perform together once again.

I have to admit that I was really looking forward to this film, from when it was announced! Yes I know probably rather sad but come on who doesn’t have a soft spot for the Muppets? You cannot help but enjoy watching them. With that in mind this film did not disappoint.

I loved the random songs, actually make that extremely random songs and dance sequences. Which are then referenced in the dialogue which makes it so tongue in cheek and very funny to the audience. I thought Jason Segel and Amy Adams were just brilliant choices for the roles, due to his comedy background and her over the top performance in Enchanted really set them up well for this film.

My favorite Muppet is obviously Miss Piggy, so hilarious to watch and totally owns all the other Muppets. Kermit really doesn’t stand a chance with her at all. Just brilliant to see the Muppets again especially as they are all so well-known to people of all ages.

However, we went to the 8:20pm screening on opening night on the biggest screen in the cinema and it was nowhere near full. Not many people into see it at all. So I will be very interested to see how this does at the box office!
