The Muppets is a movie made with absolute love & affection. I feel lucky to be part of a generation who grew up with the Muppets as a staple part of television. It was unique entertainment which later transpired into a series of films. Sadly with the progression of CGI animation, these lovable characters have been lost and the youth of today miss out. Thank God for Jason Siegel. Obviously a fan, he has written a brand new Muppet movie that will satisfy everyone. Its a smart movie packed with wonderful musical numbers, 70s & 80s references and gags. I watched this with the kids last night who had NO idea who the muppets were... for me it was a welcome trip down memory lane but for the kids it was a whole new, weird experience. No computer effects, no violence and 100% pure puppetry (How I've missed it).
