THE MUPPETS (2011)
No, it’s not Sunday morning, but “it's time to play the music. It's time to light the lights.” Here they are! Kermit and the whole gang are back! The Muppets are carrying one last show to raise money. In order to maintain their studio before the evil oil tycoon shatters it down. There is only one problem. Have they been forgotten? With the real world reflects just like the story in thiz movie, since the very first stage of movie-making process, thiz movie was way underrated. People kept asking, would thiz movie actually work? Anyway, look how well the movie is doing now. The stars sparkle all over the place. The famous frog Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Scooter, Animal and other members of The Muppets, can bring the hilarious atmosphere instantly, including the new introduced character Walter. Jason Segel proves out to be surprisingly talented with his energetic singing and dancing. “Enchanted” (2007) princess Amy Adams is a brilliant choice for her role, she is an unarguable Disney princess figure in human form. The bad guy looks cynical and funny at the same time, played very very well by Chris Cooper. Not to mention, it’s featuring endless celebrity guests such as Jack Black, Emily Blunt, Zach Galifianakis, Whoopi Goldberg, Selena Gomez, Ken Jeong, Sarah Silverman, Neil Patrick Harris, John Krasinski and even Dave Grohl from the rock band “Foo Fighters”. James Bobin makes his directorial debut through thiz movie. The songs are part of thiz musical extravaganza. The singles like “Life’s a Happy Song”, “Me Party” or “Man or Muppet” are one of the best moments. The ending scene is effective (Spoiler Alert!). When is told that they have finally got the appreciation and applause from millions of people outside the studio. It’s simply to say, we could have happy tears together. It’s not just about The Muppets anymore. But it’s also about every one of us who have grown up with these guys. Whether we realize it or not, in that very moment, we had a sort of feeling, it’s like we looked back the years we had been through and we suddenly realized how much we had already changed. The innocent world that we once had does exist. The creator Jim Henson must be proud of what they have done. Thanks, guys. Thanks for bringing us the third greatest gift of all, which is the laughter! When they do, they’ve got the whole wide world in the palm of their hand.
Stars : 7,5/10
