Muppetmania

     Want to go back in a time machine ? Forget about all your money and family troubles?  Then by all means, prepare for the feel good movie of  the year.

Jason Segal (How I Met Your Mother) wrote and stars in this charming show biz tale.  His brother , Walter and him share a love of the fuzzy thespians. (Maybe it s because he really is a muppet.)   This is where our story begins. Gary has promised his girlfriend Mary (the adorable Amy Adams) that they will go to LA for their tenth anniversary. (Dating for ten years and no proposal in sight)  At the same time, he has promised Walter that he will take him there so he can tour the Muppet studios.  But a Muppet movie wouldn’t be a muppet movie with out a villain to hiss at. Oscar winner Chris Cooper plays an oilman that would make JR Ewing proud . He suspects that there is oil in them thar hills and wants to tear down the studio to find it.  The only way to save it is to raise ten million dollars and the only way to do that is to get the gang together.  Scattered to the ends of the earth, Kermit has the gang back together except one , Piggy.  They did not part on good terms and Piggy must put her pride aside to help her friends.  Walter’s dream has come true and he wants Gary to be there for him, so does Amy. He has a dilemma . Is Gary man or muppet?

There is some celebrity surprises and a lot of great music.  So travel back , grab some popcorn and sing along. You will leave the theatre humming a happy tune.
