The Muppets

Co-writer and actor Jason Segel, with help from director James Bobin, reboots the Muppets franchise with great success. Segel, Bobin and co-writer Nicholas Stoller have gone back to the Muppets’ roots, drawing energy from the 1970s TV show. Segel plays Gary, a happy-go-lucky guy planning a trip to Los Angeles, where he will ask his girlfriend, Mary (Amy Adams), to marry him. He also plans to bring along his beloved brother, Walter … who is a Muppet. Walter has never met the likes of Kermit, Miss Piggy or Fozzie, but he idolizes them and hopes to meet them at Muppet Studios. They arrive—only to find the studios deserted. They seek out the Muppets, get them back together, and put on a show to save the studios from an evil oil baron (Chris Cooper). There’s fun music and good Muppet humor—and great to see Kermit plucking his banjo again.
