Kermit the Frog rounds up the gang to save the Muppets' derelict old theatre from a ruthless tycoon in this laugh-out-loud return to the enduring TV characters' roots. Aided by a couple of humans (co-writer Jason Segel and an adorable Amy Adams) and their new Muppet pal Walter, our fuzzy heroes struggle to stage a money-spinning telethon on the site of their former triumphs. But will an indifferent modern-day public take them to their hearts again? Although he aims the laughs primarily at a younger audience, director James Bobin (a veteran of edgier small-screen comedies such as
Flight of the Conchords
) packs the film with just enough retro references and subversive humour to strike a chord with grown-ups who will remember the show from their own childhood. The intentionally bad gags and lively musical numbers (including three fantastic new songs from
star Bret McKenzie) help maintain a brisk pace, a stony-faced Chris Cooper relishes his role as evil industrialist Tex Richman, while there's much fun to be had spotting the sparingly used celebrity cameos.
Three fans of the famous puppet variety show discover a powerful businessman is going to knock down the Muppet theatre and drill for oil on the site. They track down frontman Kermit the frog and persuade him to reunite his co-stars, so they can put on one last performance to save the venue. Comedy, starring Jason Segel, Amy Adams and Chris Cooper, with songs by Bret McKenzie (Flight of the Conchords).
