The Muppets is a musical comedy that will definitely tug at your heart strings, not due to the sentimentality in the movie, but the nostalgia of the good old days when you were younger that this movie reminds us all of.
The movie stars two brothers, a girlfriend and the muppets of course. One brother, Walter, is a muppet (voice talents of Peter Linz) and the other brother, Gary, is human (Jason Segal). On Gary’s tenth anniversary with his girlfriend Mary (Amy Adams), he decides to take them both on vacation to Los Angeles to celebrate.
Pat of their tour in L.A is to visit the famous Muppet Theater and to their shock and dismay, they find it in a dilapidated state. The theater resembles one of those old abandoned houses found in every scary horror movie. Walter eavesdrops on a conversation and finds out that the plan is to sell the theater to an oil tycoon, Tex Richman, who only wants to buy it so he can tear it down and dig for the oil underneath. He then confronts Waldorf, one owner of the theater, who tells them that if he wants to, he can purchase the theater, but it will cost him 10 Million dollars.
The distressed gang of three then visits Kermit, who is doing well and lives in a fancy Bel Air mansion. On hearing the news, Kermit comes up with the idea of reuniting the muppets, who have all gone their different ways, and putting up a show to raise the money necessary to save the Muppet Theater. The four then set of on an adventure to reunite the muppets for a muppets telethon show and convince any large TV Network to give them a spot for their show. Meanwhile Gary’s focus and heavy involvement in the muppets’ problems causes a strain in his relationship with Mary, beating the purpose of coming to Los Angeles to celebrate their 10 year anniversary.
The movie is quite enjoyable, and the musical numbers will have you bopping your head to the beat. It is good to note that the humans in the movie don’t steal the show, letting the muppets take centre stage, and in the process reminding us all why we were so fond of them back in the day. The jokes at some points are rather weak but this does not stop it from being an overall entertaining movie. It is usually difficult to pull off a franchise such as this without disappointing the fans, but The Muppets will definitely leave you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside.
