So when I was asked to attend a Media Preview of The Muppets my heart soared and sunk at the same time.
I grew up on the Muppets and love them dearly like they are family members, and while I was stoked from the first second I heard about this movie I was also a little nervous about how it would turn out.
As I sat down in my seat this morning, I took a deep breath and hoped for the best…
Then it was time for the Toy Story Short ‘Small Fry’. This short lives up to it’s predecessor ‘Hawaiian Vacation’! It was super funny, just the right length, and absolutely set the mood for the movie!!!
The Muppets is a heart warming story where three devoted fans help the Muppets reunite to save their old theatre.
The story itself is full of nods to the history of the Muppet franchise while staying current enough to be funny to newbies. And in true Muppet fashion the jokes read on the adult and child level, which led to TONS of laughter from all of us.
I am not going to lie, I cried during The Muppets. Now this may sound silly, but there were parts that struck such a cord of nostalgia for the past and hope for the future that I couldn’t help myself.
I absolutely cannot recommend this movie highly enough…I seriously want to see this movie again…NOW!!!!
