DVD Release: The Muppets

Bottom Line: The Muppets was one of the best movies of 2011. Not just kids’ movies. One of the best overall movies.

The Gist: Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, and the gang have scattered to the four winds. Can a young muppet and his goofy brother get them all back together for one, last show to save the old theater? Why yes, yes he can. Read our full review.

The Verdict: Nostalgic, but with enough of an update to make it feel fresh, this movie is pure family fun on one level and, on another, an argument against cynicism and for hope.

Be Aware: Rated PG for some mild rude humor (I think it was the fart shoes).
