It's been more than a decade since the Muppets have been on the big screen. From the looks of the reviews, their new movie, which stars Jason Segel and Amy Adams (as well as Kermit, Piggy, and company), was worth the wait.
The flick is earning strong marks across the board. Peter Travers of Rolling Stone says the film "slaps a smile on your face you won't want to wipe off." Entertainment Weekly's Lisa Schwarzbaum remarks that "the movie's gentle, clever, unironic humor feels freshly, trendily retro now."
The film also features cameos aplenty. Emily Blunt, Neil Patrick Harris, and Jack Black all make appearances. Web searches on "muppet cast members," "muppets soundtrack," and "muppet movies in order" are all hopping. Plus, overall interest in the film is up over 100% over the past week. It ain't easy being green, but this movie is gonna make plenty of it.
