The Muppets was great, and quite frankly delightful
Last night I went to see The Muppets, and yes I know, WAY overdue since it came out last Wednesday. My initial draw to this version of The Muppets was Jason Segel’s involvement, who may finally get by being a bit underrated as a funny man. I never loved The Muppets, but always liked them (I mean who doesn’t?!), and my best memory of The Muppets growing up may very well be the spoof they ran on Muppets Tonight and showed a clip of “Seinfeld Babies”… classic. I did see the original movie though, and I can admit it was watched on my own on one very exciting night in college, but can equally admit to how much I enjoyed that one. Well this one really was just a fantastic movie.
It was absolutely geared towards a younger audience, but in no way did that take away from the awesome fun that was had while watching this movie. There were funny scenes, great dance/song scenes, the Muppets, and overall a really great story. Also, some pretty cool celebrity cameos, and Jim Parsons (Sheldon Cooper) definitely had the funniest one… challenge me on that, I dare you.
I think everyone can enjoy The Muppets though. I have no idea where a complaint on that movie can come. You will love it. I promise. Also, Jason Segel is the man and anything he does is amazing. But The Muppets may always be amazing, now that I think about it.
For now, enjoy this song that is stuck in my head.
