To be honest about this one, I had absolutely no intentions on going and seeing The Muppets. I’m not exactly sure why, but for some reason it just didn’t intrigue me. Like everyone else, I did love them when I was a kid, but I just wasn’t into it.
Kermit & Crew Are Back!
The real turning point for me was hearing from a couple of friends that had seen the film. They each told me they loved it and that I HAD to see it. I finally relented and decided to go give it a shot.
Let me tell you – they were 100% right.
I have to admit that I was a little rusty on my Muppets history. It has been years since I had watched anything Muppets related. With that being said, it didn’t take long to remember everything that I loved about them when I was a kid.
Cameos, Cameos & More Cameos
The guest appearances from all of the big-name celebrities was something that was somewhat expected. The real surprise was the number of stars that kept popping up throughout the movie. We saw: Jack Black, Dave Grohl, Zach Galifianakis and John Krasinski to name a few.
The Bottom Line
You would be foolish to miss out on The Muppets. Even though I wasn’t completely sold prior to walking into the theatre, my mind was completely changed. The Muppets is a film that anyone, whether they’re 5 or 80 years old, would enjoy. Jason Segel took the reins while writing The Muppets and really did an excellent job reviving this classic franchise.
