This week's reviewed movie is:
The Muppets




Gene the Barber

Snick the Sidekick

Gordie the Barber


The Muppets plot isn't the most complex bit of storytelling, but it doesn't need to be.

If you're going to see a Muppet movie, you'll want to see lots of Muppets, and all the favorites are there.

This new film is a ride that makes for a great, fun time.

It has enjoyable music and is full of big laughs that will bring back memories of your yesteryears, which adds up to one of the most entertaining movies of the year.

It should delight both old fans and those who are just getting acquainted.

Take my word-go see it. You won't be sorry. 
After a year of car chases, explosions, and intense battle sequences, it was refreshing to see a movie made for everyone.

Laughs ensue as Kermit must make up with his old sweetheart, Fozzie is still in search of the missing punchline, and who knows what's going on with Gonzo and those chickens!

Can the gang save the old Muppet theater (with the help of their biggest fan) from the oil-drilling meg-lo-maniac in time?
This movie, technically is classified as a musical comedy, but I think it is really a 1 ½ hour  exercise in nostalgia.

It's the Muppets as they haven't been since Jim Henson died.

To honor Henson's legacy, the filmmakers insisted on using old-fashioned puppetry rather than CGI.

This film is more variety show than traditional narrative, and it has been put together with obvious affection by all involved.

It's a good family fun flick.
