Dir. James Bobin. 2011, 109 mins. 35mm. With Muppet performers Steve Whitmire, Dave Goelz, Eric Jacobson, Bill Barretta, Peter Linz, Matt Vogel, and David Rudman; Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper. It’s been just over ten years since the Muppets returned to the big screen with the story of their fictional return to the small screen. As the movie begins, Gary (Segel) and his Muppet-like brother Walter take a trip to Hollywood with Gary’s sweetheart Mary (Adams) and soon find themselves on a mission to reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways. Will they get everyone together in time for a telethon to save The Muppet Theatre from evil oil man Tex Richman (Cooper)? This was the first Muppet movie to win an Academy Award, with composer Bret McKenzie taking home the prize for Best Original Song for “Man or Muppet.”
