It’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights

Am I the only one that’s excited for the new Muppet movie? It has all the great muppets and Jason Segel! They already have put out some great teasers and then this trailer

I use to watch The Muppets as a kid. I’d watch the original show, the muppet babies, the rebirth of the muppet show in the 90’s and I’ve seen every movie. I also bought a 20 dollar Iphone case at Walmart just because it had Beaker on it. The show had so many great characters like Gonzo, Kermit, The Swedish Chef, Fuzzy Bear, Beaker, Dr. Honeydew and of course my favorite Statler and Waldorf.

Jason Segel is such a great pick for the lead human role. He is great in everything I’ve seen him in, even in crappy movies like Gulliver’s Travels. Which I feel like if this movie was made a few years ago Jack Black would have gotten the lead. Don’t get me wrong Kung Fu Panda was great and in High Fidelity he stole the every scene he was in. But it seems like since School of Rock he has been in a lot of teen/tween flicks. Which isn’t bad, if he found his audience more power to him, I’m just not it anymore.

Amy Adams as the female role I’m not to sure about. I haven’t seen Enchanted or the second Night at the Museum so I don’t know about her more fun roles. But she is great in The Fighter, Doubt and Sunshine Cleaning. She also looks good next to Jason Segel.

Its movies like this that really make me happy that I’m an uncle. See this way I’m not the creepy guy sitting alone in a theater watching a kids movie.

  1. …or the creepy 20-something girl by herself at Step Up 2 The Streets with all the pre-teen girls. 🙂 I like Jason Segel too, but there’s something about him that puts me off a little. He’s a great actor and all, so I’m not really sure what it is? Amy Adams will be amazing–you should probably watch Enchanted asap. I remember seeing the previews for that and thinking it looked horrible, but got a nice surprise when I actually watched it! It’s clever and funny and set in New York City (although I could’ve done without Patrick Dempsey).

    • I’ll have to check it out Cindy has it. And there is nothing creepy about Step Up 2 or watching it alone in a theater! It just shows your cooler then everyone who waited to see it on DVD.
