The Muppets (2011)

Director: James Bobin. Cast: Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, Rashida Jones, Alan Arkin, Zach Galifianakis, Ken Jeong, Sarah Silverman, Emily Blunt, James Carvel, Whoopi Goldberg, Selena Gomez, Neil Patrick Harris, John Krasinski, Judd Hirsch, Mickey Rooney, Jack Black. 103 min. Rated PG. Comedy/Family.

Some movies are made solely for you and your generation, and no one else will appreciate them. If you grew up with the Muppets like I did, this is the movie for you. Jason Segel and Nick Stoller manage to revitalize the franchise, and make it as original and authentic as it could ever get, with numerous memorable lines along the way. They even show the audacity of attempting an unconventional ending that will surprise. Take a look at the cast: amazing how many famous performers went for the honor of a cameo role in the film - deservedly so.

Favorite line: Swedish chef: "Say hello to my little friend!!!"

  1. Speaking of cameos, according to IMDb the following were also supposed to appear but their scenes got deleted: Billy Crystal, Ricky Gervais, Kathy Griffin, Wanda Sykes, Danny Trejo, and Rob Corddry.

  2. I would have loved to see Billy Crystal's scene (they could have deleted Sarah Silverman, for all I care).

    Do you if the DVD has the deleted scenes?

  3. It actually does! I didn't think to look.
