  1. I never saw this in theaters. I’m not really sure why. I wanted to see it. I had time. I thought it would be good, but I never saw it. Weird.

      Yeah I had the exact same thing happen to me thought it looked good, wanted to see it never did. In fact I still haven’t seen it even though I feel like I should, weird.

  2. I had a feeling that you’d review this today. I haven’t seen this movie but I want to see it since Tom Hiddleston is in it briefly. LOL. Oh, and because I liked the first one fine.

    I’m surprised you didn’t mention miss.piggy and Kermit got married against n which now in hindsight its pretty useless since they broke up in the newest Muppet show and plus they already were married in the old Muppet movie but since this is a reboot I guess they did it again.

    My mom and dad absolutely hated this movie I forgot why but they said it wasn’t as funny which I don’t get it wasn’t that has of a movie and I think its because like you brought up it didn’t have much emotional moments as the original.

  4. I loved “The Muppet” film but absolutely hated this one. I didn’t find it funny, the characters just seemed annoying, the plot was all over the place and there were way too many cameos. I guess it’s fine for little kids but personally I didn’t find it enjoyable.

    • Too many cameos? Cameos are one of the defining features of the Muppets.

      The very first film had Edgar Bergen, Milton Berle, Mel Brooks, James Coburn, Dom Deluise, Elliot Gould, Bob Hope, Madeline Kahn, Carol Kane, Cloris Leachman, Steve Martin, Richard Pryor, Telly Savalas, Orson Wells and Paul Williams.

      The one before this had Emily Blunt, James Carville, Leslie Feist, Whoopi Goldberg, Selena Gomez, David Grohl, Neil Patrick Harris, Judd Hirsch, John Krasinski, Rido Rodriguez, and Mickey Rooney. There were several more filmed that didn’t make the final cut.

  5. I love this film. This film gave me a good laugh, and sometimes that’s all you need to be a good Muppet movie.

  6. Eh I guess I liked the first movie…that being the one before this one, a bit more. The energy in this one definitely felt a bit different for me, but maybe it’s just been so long since those comedy-focused movies that I kind of stopped being used to it. I guess the only part I really had a problem with was the criminal who looked like Kermit. It felt like half the time the jokes worked and half the time they don’t, sort of that Borat formula (“Doh look at that, he mispronounced that word! OOOOOhhhhh he doesn’t understand this expression, doh hoho, Oh that’s so funny!”). It doesn’t work for me as much as it does to other people. But it was still kind of fun, though I felt a little more invested in the last film.

  7. I liked the emotion of the first one more, but I did thoroughly enjoy this movie. To be honest, while I don’t find myself humming them as often as I used to, I found the soundtrack to this movie to be way more catchy and fun than the first film. “We’re Doing a Sequel” had me laughing out loud at its obvious jabs at the film industry and how many corners they are willing to cut to keep a popular franchise going (also how it inadvertently predicted the fourth Toy Story movie.). The interview song was so upbeat and fun and I love listening to that song over and over. The contrast to Ty Burrell’s “smooth” French Interpol officer and Sam the Eagle’s take-no-shit FBI officer was freaking hilarious. Overall, I would say this movie is about an 8/10.

  8. So you DID think it was better than the other one? I have yet to see this one. I think it’s the only theatrically released Muppet film I haven’t seen. Yeah, I heard it wasn’t as good as the first one. It still certainly seems nice. I doubt it would be as good as the first one.

    It was….OK. I wish Piggy wasn’t always so annoying as f*ck but she really ruins the whole franchise for me. I’ve despised her even as a child.
