In the 1950s the Muppets made their first appearance and stole the hearts of many. On Nov. 23, “The Muppets” hit theaters in an attempt to win the hearts of a whole new generation.
Every movie has its flaws that make it boring, or uninteresting, and sometimes even unbearable, but the imperfections of this movie are what make it so perfect.
Of course, the Muppets stuck with their tradition of having countless guest stars come and go through the movie and it kept you wondering what star would appear in the next scene. This movie’s stars include Selena Gomez, Jim Parsons, Dave Grohl, and Neil Patrick Harris, along with 12 other guest appearances.
In the movie, Gary (Jason Segel), Mary (Amy Adams), and Gary’s Muppet “brother,” Walter, pack their bags and hit the road for LA. While there, Walter stumbles upon a disappointing secret about the Muppet Theater and, with the help of Mary and Gary, is able to rally up the Muppet gang for one last show. After a few days of cleaning, begging, and kidnapping, a telethon is put on and the Muppet memories are saved for generations to come.
Although the Muppets have come and gone, it’s never bad to introduce a new generation to an old idea. The movie will bring back childhood memories of those who grew up watching these oh-so-entertaining puppets and will create new ones in the minds of new viewers. “The Muppets” is a movie worth seeing for everyone of any age.
“The Muppets” is rated PG for some mild rude humor.
