Oh Muppets! Muppets! Muppets! But who are the Muppets?
Oh no no, it’s not really MY generation. I think it’s for those that are a few years older than me because I don’t remember having a really deep impression of this whole gang other than Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy.
Anyway, was feeling bored and thus wanted to do something other than related to the wedding. And so, we got my sister and her friend to watch it. Not that we are dying to watch, but there just isn’t much worthy movies around this week.
Well… erm… okay… it’s basically about this “kid” who feels that he’s different (of course because he looks exactly like a Muppet!) because he don’t seem to grow until one day, when he was being introduced to Muppets. That’s where he grew to like the Muppets so much. He has an elder brother (real person) who does everything with him since young. So one day, when they grew up, his brother wanted to go LA to celebrate his anniversary with his fiancee. And since they always do things together, he brought him there too, and that’s where the Muppets studio is!
So that whole trip suddenly just seems to be for him instead of his elder brother. And while they were off visiting the abandoned Muppets studio, he heard that some scheming businessman wanted to tear off that whole building and dig oil underneath. And then it just continues, with the whole movie about them looking for Kermit the Frog, and trying to get everyone back again to put up a show and earn the money to restore the Muppets studio again.
By the way, it’s a bit of those musical movie.
And… I’ll just give it a 3 out of 5. Quite funny at parts but otherwise… the story is just so-so.
I’m not really a fan of Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog either so… I believe you can give it a miss if it isn’t yours too.
