I believe I agree, after seeing the trailer


Amanda March 8, 2014 at 8:33 pm

B-b-but… Ricky Gervais said yes!


BeckyW March 8, 2014 at 9:25 pm

Oh no, really?? Bummer, because there’s no way we’ll be able to get out of seeing it.

Adult w/o kids paying full price? No.
Adult with kids paying full price? If you have to.
Adult w/o kids at a matinee? Maybe
Adult with kids at a matinee? Sure.
Anyone on Netflix? Definitely.

I saw the trailer when I went to see Frozen. It didn’t look remotely interesting then and I’m a Muppets fan. Just sadness for what’s happing with the Muppets at Disney.

I have a 6 year old who has asked to see it. He quotes lines from the trailer. We will be going.


Will March 9, 2014 at 5:38 am

Oh but can you please review muppet vision 3d? I want to know everything that’s changed about it since I went in 1991.


DoctorK March 9, 2014 at 6:22 am

To NOT see this movie is distinctly unpatriotic.


tanya March 9, 2014 at 6:45 am

The detailed thoughts and analysis you provided are much appreciated.


Asha March 9, 2014 at 9:03 am

My kids don’t even want to see it. That’s saying something.


Christie March 9, 2014 at 9:57 am

I’m torn. Josh vs. Ricky Gervais What on earth will I do????


Magic1106 March 9, 2014 at 10:48 am

I would like to hear Lisa’s opinion please.


Rob Huddleston March 9, 2014 at 10:51 am

At a birthday party at the movies yesterday, I have to say that the Muppets movie was probably the best kiddo movie in the trailers.

Which probably says more about the absolute crapola coming out this year as compared to the watchability of the Muppets movie.

I didn’t even like the one with Jason Segel so, thanks for reaffirming my thoughts.

And the snarky Josh is back! Writing a book has altered your sense of humor.
Will….nothing has changed. Sad but the things we remember enjoying as a kid are just only enjoyable if you have a child seeing it for the first time.


Paul March 9, 2014 at 12:18 pm

Very accurate Lisa. My grandfather thought the Muppets were the dumbest thing ever while I was growing up. He even pointed out how the British fell head over heals for it and those people also loved Monty Python. Which brings me to MY point. Not everything is for everyone. I thought Saving Mr Banks was AWESOME and Frozen was far from Disney’s top 10. However, Saving Mr Banks was ignored by the Oscars and Frozen brought Disney their first major animation award. Some people love apples, some oranges, and others love kale.


ernierich March 9, 2014 at 12:51 pm

I hate Monty Python and I’m one of THOSE people! :-)


JB Meier March 9, 2014 at 1:43 pm

You forgot to warn us about the spoilers, Josh…


Nick March 9, 2014 at 2:33 pm

@Paul I agree with your assessment regarding both Saving Mr.Banks and Frozen – underrated and overrated films respectively. Then again I’m not a parent and it’s all about the kids so c’est la vie..


Kirsten March 9, 2014 at 4:24 pm

I don’t understand. I loved old school Muppets, and loved watching the new movie with my kids. The ‘Are you a man or a muppet’ song cracked me up. In the minority I shall be…


RebeccaMcK March 9, 2014 at 6:20 pm

I’ll be seeing the new Muppets movie with my kid, although I like them more than she does. Mostly because I like the human actors in this new one (and I loved Saving Mr. Banks and Frozen). I’d prefer to see the Muppets more than the Mr. Peabody dog any day (I didn’t like the cartoon as a kid). Hoping I don’t have to go to THAT one. I’ll tell the kiddo we need that movie money to be saved instead towards the October WDW trip.


RebeccaMcK March 22, 2014 at 12:31 pm

Okay, here’s a review from me: Thought “Muppets 2″ was good but a bit too long. Could have been shortened to 90 minutes. Entertaining and funny, especially the first ten minutes or so (and it’s worth seeing the Monsters University short that precedes it). The cameos are great, as are Ricky, Tina and Ty in their roles. First show of the day is usually cheapest, which is why we saw it at 10:25 am today (with a packed crowd!). Adults will get more of the jokes than kids do…which is how the Muppets tend to roll.
