Movie Review: The Muppets

Thanks to Churp Churp, I had the privilege of watching the Muppets last night :)

It's time to meet the Muppets....

Storyline: It was a pretty typical storyline, where there’s this typical evil dude who wants to destroy the Muppets Theatre, and typically, the Muppets get together to try to raise money to save the Muppets Theatre. Wouldn’t spoil the ending for you, but as I said, it’s pretty typical, so if you’re a typical kinda fella, you’ll know the ending already >.<

We were not disappointed, as there were many trademark Disney traits, firstly being the songs, which are expected of a Disney production. A lot of care and thought has been put into the lyrics, the tunes are catchy without being too boring, and the dance moves are refreshing. There was quite a lot of attention to detail, one of which they had a small change in population when they left the town, and another showing Kermit when he had to swallow a gulp. The creativity was also unexpected, where they could ‘travel by map’, a new alternative to travelling the conventional way.

 This is Miss Piggy, who is my favourite Muppet :D drama queen that she is, she is good in what she does, so she can afford to act all hoity toity. While I don't hope to be all high and mighty one day, I do hope to be the best in what I do :D

 Try to spot all of them in the movie :D

I think the best was still the cameo appearances though :D Imagine my surprise and delight when I saw the one and only Jim Parsons (of the Big Bang Theory fame) appear on screen. The whole cinema was pleasantly surprised, and Baby was laughing so hard beside me :p Being TBBT fans, we could appreciate the humour, and enjoy the moment.

All in all, at the end of the day I would give it a 4/5 rating. It’s a family movie to watch with your kids, with loved ones, or with friends, with a little tinge of lighthearted romance thrown in between Jason Segel and Amy Adams.

It will be out on 8th December, so go catch it! :)
