The Muppets: Movie Review

The Muppets: Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Nov 25, 2011
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

The Muppets are back with a whole new adventure. Starring Jason Segel and Amy Adams, the Muppets and three fans unveil a dastardly scheme! Find out more in the Kidzworld movie review!

The Muppets follows the story of two brothers, Gary and Walter. And although they are as close as two brothers can be, Walter can’t help noticing that he’s different, and worries about this until he discovers The Muppet Show on TV, people who look just like him!

For their 10th anniversary Gary decides to whisk his girlfriend Mary, a teacher who can fix anything, away from their home of Smalltown USA to Los Angeles and brings Walter along so he can see the historic Muppet Theater where the show used to take place. But when they get there, the theater has been long-neglected, and while sneaking into Kermit’s old office, Walter overhears the scheme of oil baron Tex Richman (played by Chris Cooper) to tear down the theater and drill for oil.

Reunion

Walter, Gary and Mary set off to find Kermit and tell him, but when they do, they find Kermit a little reluctant to reunite the old cast. Once he’s convinced, it’s a non-stop romp to find all the old members, and we run into some familiar faces along the way, like Animal in anger management therapy with comedian Jack Black! Reuniting the old gang isn’t their only obstacle, they also have to convince a television network to give them a slot to run their telethon, and raise $10 million dollars by midnight. Do they still have enough loyal fans and enough tricks up their sleeve to pull it off? You’ll just have to watch and see!

Star Struck

Be prepared to see cameo after cameo in this fun, quirky comedy. From comedians Jack Black and Sara Silverman to seasoned actors like Alan Arkin, there's even an appearance from Selena Gomez. It’s full of hilarious musical numbers (a memorable one being, “Am I a Man or a Muppet”), and heart warming moments that will make any audience say “aw”!

If you aren’t familiar with the old show, there are lots of explanations and clips to get you in the spirit, and Jason Segel and Amy Adams dance up a storm as soon as the camera starts rolling. People who watched the old show will feel nostalgic, and newcomers to the Muppets will hopefully not be seeing the last of them. The movie has its low points, but humor always wins out, and there are lots of cheeky inside jokes and asides for the audience. By the end of the film you’ll be wanting to clap for the return of the Muppets!

“Instruction in world history in the so-called high schools is even today in a very sorry condition. Few teachers understand that the study of history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this battle or that was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant. To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.”
