When I was a young girl, many of our evenings were spent with the Muppets. We used to love watching the numerous misadventures that the lovable wacky felt characters would find themselves in week after week. My mother would laugh hysterically every time the grumpy old men from the balcony would poke fun at Fozzie Bear’s jokes. Gonzo’s chickens would have my sister and me giggling whenever they fluttered onto the stage. It was a lot of fun to watch them! They produced a few movies later and are an all time favorite of ours. Theses movies are something that my boys have had the good fortune to enjoy thanks dvd’s. Now the Muppets are hitting the big screen later this year with another adventure I’m sure all will love to watch.
Bellow is the synopsis, trailer, and some additional information about their latest movie.
On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. With secret, signature, celebrity cameos, “The Muppets” hits the big screen Nov. 23, 2011.
