“It’s time to play the music
It’s time to light the lights
It’s (finally!) time to meet the Muppets!”
Today is the day that Muppets fans have been counting down to! Finally, after a long 12 years The Muppets are back on the big screen – WOO HOO!
I went into this film with trepidation as, while I was excited, I was afraid that it was not going to live up to expectations and that this film was not going to be true to what the Muppets are all about. I am happy to say that there was no need to fear!
I love everything about this movie! It’s fun, fabulous and even frivolous in parts. It’s sugary sweet but not sickening – I was smiling throughout and left the cinema wanting to burst into a spontaneous dance number (with the support of an imaginary cast of hundreds of course!).
This film is not just for the fans. It is near impossible not to come out loving the Muppets. New fans will love the Muppets’ innocence and eccentricities, their wittiness and hilarity.
I really hope that this is the Muppets resurgence we’ve all been waiting for – it’s time for a new generation to enjoy the gang
In the words of The Muppet Show “It’s the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational” film.
Now stop reading this and get yourself to a cinema to experience the joy that is The Muppets!
