    Synopsis


    The Muppets
    When an evil oil man discovers black gold beneath Muppet Theater, Kermit recruits a Muppet super-fan and his two best friends to help gather up the gang for a telethon that will save the venue from being razed and replaced with a giant oil pump. Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) never met an oil field he couldn't suck dry. So when Tex discovers a bountiful reservoir right underneath Muppet Theater, he begins drawing up plans to claim the land and start drilling. Little does Tex realize that devoted Muppets fan Walter is currently in Los Angeles with his best friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams), and that he's not about to let one man's greed spoil a good thing for everyone. With Kermit by their side, Walter, Gary, and Mary hatch a plan to put on a big telethon that will help them raise the ten million dollars needed to keep Muppet Theater standing. But rounding up the gang won't be easy, because these days Miss Piggy's got a posh job at Vogue Paris; Fozzie has landed a gig at a Reno casino; Gonzo has become the owner of a successful plumbing company; and Animal is dealing with anger management issues in a Santa Barbara clinic. With the drilling deadline fast drawing near and Tex wringing his hands in anticipation, the gang races to put on the performance of a lifetime and save Muppet Theater from certain destruction. Directed by James Bobin and written by Segel and Nicholas Stoller, The Muppets Movie features cameos by Zach Galifianakis, Billy Crystal, Jack Black, Alan Arkin, and Jean-Claude Van Damme, among others. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      This Big-Hearted Revival Put a Big Smile on My Fac

      Warm, charming and funny, just like the Muppets I remember from my childhood. I'm not often one for musicals, but this one - aided by the brilliant combination of fuzzy puppet singers and Flight of the Conchords composition - hits all the right notes. It's funny without nudging into blue territory, a talent that's becoming more scarce by the minute, with a heartwarming reunion storyline that slowly reintroduces the cast and reminds us why we grew to love them in the first place. Loaded with unexpected cameos and sly winks at the troupe's long history, it's clear that a lot of love went into the making of this picture; the screen positively resonates from beginning to end. Though I was hesitant to revisit this old territory at first, by the final act I was grinning warmly and nodding right along, utterly entranced.

      For a Muppets fan-I was disappointed

      When I first heard they were going to do a new film I was happy. The last film Muppet film I did not care for. I like Amy Adams but her role here is a stereo type of the girlfriend role. Oscar nominated 3 times, she could have phoned the performance in. Was glad to see all my favorite characters. Did we care of how Piggy looked in the film-not really. Too bad they could not get some celebrities that had appeared on the show or in the earlier movies. Jack Black? Bottom of the barrel huh? Won an Oscar for the song. Slow year for music. Reusing songs in the soundtrack. Not talking about Muppet songs but AC-DC & others? Tacky. Extras are ok-all extras like bloopers & making of of course are staged. I will not be doing the digital download for the film nor soundtrack. An OK film-just could have been better.

      Purely Charming Muppets Movie

      There is no better word to describe this movie other then charming! The muppets are back...fresh and renewed. What made this movie so charming was its ability to poke fun at itself. The plot of the movie is so true to the francise (make big bucks or Disney/Big Oil will scrap you) that it immediately grabs you. For those that grew up with the muppets the nostalgia will warm you and for new generations the modern feel with appeal to them. Its a wonderful movie for the whole family and I highly recommend. "It obvious...its predictable...its campy...its....The Muppets. . .we loved it!" -Waldorf & Statler

      This is a good movie for the whole family. Lighthearted and amusing for the adults and a familiar cast of characters for the little ones to stay focused on.. The blu-ray looks great and sounds great too. We didn't get to the special features so can't really comment on them but overall this was a great purchase. Recommended especially for families with younger children.

      A Muppet Fan's Collectible

      If you are a Muppet Fan or collect old school metal lunch boxes, then this Box is for you. The print is well done, surface features are glossy. This item is smaller than those full size Thermos Plastic lunch boxes. It is more for show, as it probably would not last more than a week with my six year old if taken to school!

      A return to form for the Muppets

      As long time Muppets fan, it was great to see the iconic characters once again in a great story just as themselves. The humor, references, and throwbacks to the old days were a breath of nostalgic air. After the last few films, it was really refreshing to have a traditional Muppets adventure, with a few new twists and faces joining their expansive family.

      Somewhat Disappointing Muppet Movie

      I have enjoyed the Muppets for a very long time and was excited to buy their latest movie. The cast looked good and I had expectations for the movie. Unfortunately I was disappointed in the plot, acting and creativity. The movie does have its moments of enjoyment, just not what I expected. I still recommend the movie but with some reservations.

      Picked this up at my local best buy. This is probably the best exclusive and rarest for this movie. The lunchbox is metal, with the movie title and Walter embossed on the lunchbox. Being an old school Muppet fan, this release is a real treat. And the blu ray special features are plentiful. Thanks Best Buy for such a great release.
