Not just because I'm a Muppet fan, hands-down, this is the best movie of the year ("The Artist" is a close 2nd place)! There's a lyric in one of the songs that says: "I've got everything that I need right in front of me". That's the way I felt for 2 hours watching "The Muppets". It's officially the best-reviewed film of 2011 according to Rottentomatoes.com and has received more praise than Kermit could have wished for. Speaking of Kermit, he has changed. Like me, he is a bit more jaded about life. He needs someone to lift his spirits in this film and we couldn't root for him more. The whole gang is back. Muppets we haven't seen since Jim Henson's death in 1990. What a true pleasure to see old "faces" I grew up with knowing that a new generation will get to experience them the way I did! Jason Segel has done a miraculous job of staying in the true spirit of Henson's style, something that has been lacking in recent years. And as for Walter (Segel's "Muppet" brother), he couldn't be a more welcome addition to the Muppet family. Be ready to laugh, be ready to sing, and ultimately (for us older Muppet viewers) be ready to wipe a nostalgic tear from your eye. Welcome back gang, and keep up the good work! Sensational, inspirational, celebrational, and Muppetational!!!
