A terrific literary drama and character piece that shows how the process of creating art can be seen differently by those doing it and those looking at it from the outside.

We live in a nostalgia obsessed age, so I suppose it was only a matter of time before someone dusted off The Muppets. Thankfully, it was someone who cared more about the integrity of the property than they did about making a few bucks.'The Muppets' is just a delightful film. With a giant heart on its sleeve, it sings and dances its way through a breezy hour and a half of cheerful, can-do storytelling. That's not to say it's dumb. Far from it. It actually has a deceptively sharp wit, but it's never snarky or mean spirited. This is a feel good movie for everyone. I can't recommend it enough.

Once upon a time, a good-natured hippie called Jim Henson stuck his hands up some socks. This eventually led to him collaborating with the Children's Television Workshop, with whom he produced "Sesame Street", a supposedly ground-breaking television programme designed to educate children.Seeking a more adult audience, Henson produced "The Muppet Show". Essentially Tina Fey's "30 Rock" with felt and psychedelics, the series saw a suave frog, narcissistic pig and various other creatures (called "muppets"), gathering at a theatre to put on old fashioned, vaudeville shows. Audiences loved it.Released in 2011, James Bobin's "The Muppets" is set decades after the demise of "The Muppet Show". Written by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller, the film's formulaic plot finds various muppets attempting to save their old theatre from a mean corporation. Most of the film milks the supposedly outmoded, archaic nature of "the muppets" for sentimental, emotional value. This is the film's big mistake. The muppets always offered a postmodern, mocking take on old fashioned vaudeville theatre. Zany, and even kind of edgy, there is little about them that is archaic. Though "The Muppets'" first half is routine, unfunny and overly sentimental, it nevertheless climaxes strongly. When our heroes eventually put on a vaudeville show, the jokes start flying, best of which sees a quartet of singers performing a funny, a-cappella version of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Other memorable moments include Jason Segel singing "Am I a Man or a Muppet?" and Kermit the Frog singing "The Rainbow Connection", made famous by Henson in his first Muppet movie. An effervescent Amy Adams co-stars.7/10 – Who'd have thought Kurt Cobain would be saving puppets in 2011?

In spite of some initial development problems – like the distinguished Muppeteer Frank Oz turning the movie down because of his dissatisfaction with the script – 'The Muppets' managed to be, as of today, the highest grossing Muppet movie of all time. This big financial success may come off as a surprise, considering that this was the first theatrical Muppet movie in 12 years. Although Frank Oz expressed his dissatisfaction with the script, I would say that the simple, but very effective script (written by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller) is the movie's best aspect and maybe the biggest reason why the movie performed so well. From what I gather, the movie's plot is very similar to other Muppet projects, which is a perfect way of not alienating the old fans while reintroducing the characters to new ones.Walter (voiced by Peter Linz) is an everyday Muppet who finds it somewhat hard living in the human world, despite of having a very supportive human brother, Gary (Jason Segel). One day his life changes dramatically – he discovers the classic Muppet show and is amazed by the Muppets performing in it. When Gary and Gary's girlfriend Mary (Amy Adams) plan to celebrate their 10th anniversary in Los Angeles, they invite Walter to accompany them and in the meantime visit the Muppet studio. Walter there finds out that an evil oil tycoon, Tex Richman (Chris Cooper), wants to buy the studio and raze it to the ground because, apparently, there's oil beneath it. The Muppets' only way of keeping the studio is raising 10 million dollars, and the only way to do so is to put on a show.'The Muppets' has all the charms of previous Muppet projects – the abundance of gags, the musical numbers and the cameos – and all of these elements are perfectly combined in one satisfyingly enjoyable movie. The humor in the movie is very self-referential, sometimes self deprecating, and sometimes even filled with subtle social criticism. No matter the form the humor takes, all the jokes and the gags in the movie, with the exception of a rare few, are fun and entertaining. The musical numbers are colorful, original and could easily warm the heart even of some cold bastard who doesn't like musicals (like me). And of course, there are the celebrity cameos, which were quite unforgettable and delightful.While, just a few moments ago, I hailed the effectiveness and the simplicity of the plot in regards of reintroducing the characters to the news generations of fans, I fear those newer fans (myself included) might have a somewhat harder time enjoying the movie than the old fans, since they lack the nostalgia factor. The main character in the movie, Walter, grew up with The Muppet Show, he idolizes its characters, but those of us who didn't have such an experience growing up could have a harsh time emphasizing with him as the movie's protagonist. By all means, the lack of a stronger protagonist in no way affects the movie's fun value, but occasionally you need something more from a movie than just fun value to be truly amazed.Rating: 7/10 Read more at passpopcorn.com

This movie is hilarious and the Muppets are as fun as ever. Kermit, Fonzie,Gonzo, Miss Piggy & of course the new character Walter. I was in tears of laughter when the Man or Muppet song came on. The other good thing about this Muppet movie is that the show did not revolve around the Muppets but instead focused on Walter and his brother. This is what made the movie so funny.The Muppets is really entertaining for young children and older audiences. The songs are also better than modern pop music. This movie is definitely a must watch. Your never too old to watch classic Muppets movies and this is just like the many other Muppet movies that have been created. Good job to the director and all the cast.On a final note Jack Black was a perfect celebrity to pick for the movie although the cameos were a bit overdone.
