For years, they have brought joy and humor to many. Theyhave become classic characters and icons to not only children, but adults as well. I speak of course of none other than the one and only “Muppets”. After 12 years, the Muppets have finally returned to the silver screen in their latest film entitled “The Muppets”. Is it everything that fans and audiences could hope for. It’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights, it’s time to review “The Muppets” on Timdiana’s reviews tonight…or today…here is the review.
The Story of “the Muppets” deals with of course of the Muppets as they must reunite in order to save the Muppet theatre. The story was refreshing. It was an area that has not been seen in any other Muppet story: what would life be like for the Muppets after the Muppet Show was over. The movie feature several sub plots such as the love story between Jason Segel and Amy Adams. Sub plots like that were established, but there was a clear difference between the sub plots and the overall plot. Nonetheless, “The Muppet’s” plot, was entertaining and straight to the point.
“The Muppets” feature an enormous cast of characters and cameos; but the film could not rely on just the standard characters alone; it needed a new character to be a catalyst for newcomers. Enter Walter; the newest Muppet. His role is simple, get the Muppets back together as well finding himself. Having a character like that is a gamble, but it did work. The performances from the human characters are just as enjoyable as the Muppets, creating a well rounded cast that does the franchise justice. If only other films could figure that out.
There are two things the Muppets are known for, musical numbers and humor, and this film personifies in both. Full of silliness and breaking the fourth wall, the comedy had me laughing all the way through. The film could teach recent comedies a thing or two about humor. The musical numbers were memorable as well being very diverse from each other. Both of these factors are played very strongly thought out the film as they defined what the Muppets were all about.
Full of entertainment and nostalgia, “The Muppets” is a must see for anyone looking for fun time. It was everything I thought it would be, but the biggest surprise is that this film was undoubtedly one of the best films of the year. My hat is off to the Muppets as after twelve years, they still got it.
