On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, his brother Gary (Jason Segel) and Gary’s girlfriend Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds.
To stage a telethon and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. With signature celebrity cameos, Disney’s “The Muppets” hit the big screen Nov. 23, 2011. 
We were able to go see an advanced screening of the Muppets the weekend before it opened!! I was so excited and nervous because it was the first time for Alexandra to watch a movie in the theater! She loves the Muppets so I was hoping that she would be mesmerized by them and be absolutely wonderful… I was half right! She was really really good and loved the movie but could only sit for about 45-50 minutes before needing to move around. Even still she was really good and now every time she sees the Muppets commercial, she jumps up and down yelling Muppets Theater!! I love it and LOVED the movie!! It made me think about when I was a kid!! This is really about the Muppet Show (not a “normal” Muppet Movie) and made me miss it terribly! I really hope that maybe they will start making the Muppet Show again!! I know we would tune in! We definitely recommend this feel good family movie!! The Muppets get two thumbs up from us… Mah Na Mah Na!!

Disclosure: This post is a part of Disney Insiders. I received 3 complimentary movie passes to attend a pre-screening. I was not compensated to write a positive or favorable review. This is Keeping Up With The Rheinlander’s personal opinion.
