The Muppets Review - 4 Stars

Jason Segal and Amy Adams take a dream vacation to Los Angeles with Jason’s adopted brother Walter — who happens to be a muppet but just doesn’t know it.  Walter idolizes the Muppets and hopes to visit their studio.  Once there, he overhears a plot by Chris Cooper to buy the place and tear it down.  Faster than you can say “Let’s put on a show!” they find Kermit, talk him into a reunion, gather up all the characters and ultimately reunite the frog and Miss Piggy. The movies glides along with jokes and music and celebrity cameo.  It never loses energy and throws out a parades of laughs and a good time for both adults and kids.  The movie brings the characters back as good as you remember them for a holiday movie home run. Does it deliver what it promises?  PG rated comedy with some wonderful familiar characters.  Is it entertaining?  Vastly.  Is it worth the price of admission?  Absolutely.
