The Muppets – Quick Reaction

Expectations suck.

Everyone likes the Muppets right?  In all honesty, if you don’t like the Muppets you’re probably a jerk.

The reviews for this Muppet movie have been fantastic.  Over at rottentomatoes.com it has a very impressive 98% fresh rating.  The ads have looked good.  I even like the posters I’ve seen for it.

So that’s why me ‘liking’ The Muppets instead of ‘loving’ it is disappointing.  Oh sure it’s a good time and the basic story of the Muppets reuniting is a cool idea.  But the songs are forgettable (except for Chris Cooper rapping, which is legit awesome!) and not everything works with leads Jason Segal, Amy Adams, and Walter, the new Muppet character introduced in the film.

It is fun and unfortunately my hopes were a bit too high.  The nostalgia effect kicks in and Kermit, Fozzie, and company come through more times than not.

Grade: B
