I love the Muppets. I really, really do. I love the way Ms. Piggy always goes after what she wants, the way everyone stays friends through it all, the way flaws are lovingly accepted. It is such a good message for kids-much better than that ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ crap. Much better.
So when I found out they were making a new Muppet movie, I was so super geeked. I went out and bought the O.P.I. Muppet nail polish.
And then my honey called and said we had advanced tickets to see it Monday night! I swooned in my desk chair-somebody was pulling my leg!
More importantly, I wasn’t disappointed. I loved the movie and thought it stayed true enough to the original intent and design to delight the biggest of Muppet fans while updating enough to stay relevant.
What I really loved about this movie was that is isn’t a digital rendering of our beloved felty friends. There are real puppeteers in there-some of them from the original core group. Their talent is simply amazing.
Have a wonderful holiday weekend! Any other movies anyone recommends for this long weekend?
