Double Feature with THE MUPPET MOVIE!

(2011) dir James Bobin w/Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, Rashida Jones [103 min]
After what seems like eons of inferior sequels, everyone’s favorite puppets have finally returned to the big screen in a film that’s worthy of their talents. In THE MUPPETS, co-writer Jason Segal plays Gary, a human whose brother Walter looks unnaturally Muppet-y. Ignoring all of the incongruities of this, the film jumps into a reunion tale as Gary and Walter discover the nefarious plan of an oil baron (Cooper) who wants to destroy the old Muppet Studios. Enlisting the help of a reluctant Kermit and Gary’s girlfriend Mary (Adams), the pair set out to bring the estranged Muppet troupe back together and put on a telethon in order to raise the money to save the studio and put the Muppets back on the showbiz map.
