The Muppets
The plot involves two brothers - Gary (Jason Segel) a Muppet superfan who's trying to help his strangely muppety brother Walter (voiced by Peter Linz) who along with Gary's long suffering girlfriend Mary (Amy Adams) team up with Kermit to bring the Muppets back together for a telethon in order to save their abandoned Studios from being torn down by an evil oil baron (Chris Cooper). But The Muppets is also a movie about things far less tangible and far more important. The old familiar characters are all there including Kermit and Gonzo and Miss Piggy and Zoot and Sweetums and Camilla the Chicken and every single one of the Muppets you know, if your a fan. And there are also a bunch of  amazing musical numbers, many of which were composed by Bret McKenzie ("Flight of the Conchords"). They're all so toe-tapping that there’s a good chance audiences may at some point burst into a spontaneous a sing along.

More than anything The Muppets. directed by James Bobin (TV series "The Flight of the Conchords") is the story of a war on cynicism. When we rediscover Kermit, he’s beaten down by the world’s bitterness. He wanders the halls of his mansion looking at the pictures of his friends, and wondering what he did wrong. The Muppets aren’t famous anymore, we learn, people would rather watch a television show in which students punch their teachers. Or so it seems. Together with Gary, Mary, and Walter the Muppets fight back against this dismal state of affairs by simply being themselves, and using their natural ability for finding joy in putting on a show. 

The movie’s darker moments, and there are some, only emphasize just how alive and full of hope this story is. In that context, singing and dancing seems natural, and The Muppets has a lot. The movie’s theme song is “Life’s A Happy Song”, a brilliant musical number performed by Jason Segel, Amy Adams, and others whose cameo appearances I wouldn’t dream of spoiling. But, it's more than just a song and dance sequence, it’s an anthem for everything that’s beautiful and wonderful about the Muppets and their resurrection, in this movie filled with laughter and electrifying life.
