The Muppets is the newest film from the Muppets franchise, starring Jason Segal, Amy Adams, and Walter (the newest addition to the Muppet family). The film was directed by James Bobin. Not only a film for children, many adults seemed to enjoy the movie as well. The film brings back memories to now adults who watched The Muppet Show when younger. The film has many cameos of many celebrity cameos including Donald Glover, Leslie Feist, Alan Arkin, Kristen Schaal, Eddie “Piolín” Sotelo, Ken Jeong, James Carville, Rico Rodriguez and Judd Hirsch.
The film was what I believe is the best film of the year. It is a great comedy, but also has a true storyline.
The newest member of the Muppet family is Walter. He brings the movie to your heart and you instintly fall in love with him. As Mike from Big Screen Animation put it, “Walter is the most lovable on screen character since WALL-E (or maybe Dug)”.
Along with the movie, the newest Pixar short- Toy Story Toons: Small Fry- is attached. The short is directed Angus MacLane, who directed BURN-E. The short in my opinion was a beautiful film, but it wasn’t what I expected it would be. As the 7 minute played on the big screen, the story just confused me. It was almost like TS3 sped up. It kept switching from Bonnie’s house to the fast food restaurant.As for The Muppets, I give it a 5/5., but for Small Fry, it gets a 3/5.
