Jason Segel stars alongside Jim Henson's famous puppets
The Muppets are in splitsville. Kermit, Miss Piggy et al packed up the M-Show theatre long ago and moved on to other gigs, but now the site is set for demolition at the hands of evil oil baron Tex Richman (Cooper). Time to get the gang back together!
There’s a lot to like in this Disney-backed reboot: star cameos ranging from Jack Black to James Carville, some nicely staged musical numbers and several truly gut-busting gags. Yet the nostalgia-tinged story, co-written by Segel and Nicholas Stoller, is overstuffed with dewy-eyed character arcs and shtick that seems more appropriate to Judd Apatow than the late Jim Henson. The Muppet legacy is in no way sullied, but the over-the-moon magic is missing.
