The Cinematheque Reviews: The Muppets

And now let's get things started.  Why don't you get things started.  It's time to get things started.  On the most sensational inspirational celebrational Muppetational.  This is what we call the Muppet Show!   Not since little Carol Anne Freeling spoke the infamous words back in 1986, has the phrase "They're Baaaaack" aroused so much giddy curiosity in those of the X Generation.   Thirty-five years after their TV show made its debut and twelve years after their last foray into the wilds of theatrical release, Kermit, Fozzy, Animal, Beaker, Rowlf, Gonzo and Miss Piggy are indeed baaaack.  Though it may lack a certain something that the original TV show and first movie had, I am still personally pleased as punch.  My review of said new Muppet movie is now up and running over at The Cinematheque.

Longtime Muppet fans will undoubtedly have more fun than young ones, but for the most part, it’s a witty, delightful romp, that shows you that you can still be funny, without ever being mean still in 2011. Good review.
