Move Over Miss Piggy…

3 Flares 3 Flares ×

…The frog is MINE!  I feel the need to sing a duet with Miss Piggy Brandy and Monica “The Boy Is Mine” style (maniacal laugh… {you have to see the movie to get the full giggle effect} MENIACAL LAUGH!!!) But since Miss Piggy won’t return any of my calls (likely because I haven’t made any) I will just have to act it all out in my head.  (The inner workings of my head is obviously a strange place) I make no secret of my Muppet love… One particular green frog.  Kermit (or as I call him “Kermie”) was the driving force behind why I wanted to see the new movie, The Muppets. (epic video review is below… basically if you ever wanted to see me in my Snuggie with a giant stuffed Kermit… now is your chance)


I obviously couldn’t pass up the chance to go catch a sneak preview of the new movie “The Muppets” and see my favorite froggy friend.  Kermit didn’t disappoint (I mean besides in his relationship with that pig).  The rest of the Muppet clan was in top notch form as they came out of years of seclusion.

The story is simple (as in most Muppet films)… We follow the Walter (soon to be newest Muppet) and his brother Gary as they grow up in Smalltown, USA.  But only Gary does the growing.  Flash forward to Gary (Jason Segel) and his girlfriend Mary (Amy Adams) planning an anniversary trip to Hollywood.  Walter is a life long Muppet fan and has always dreamed of going to Muppet Studios so of course they take Walter along.  Cue, run down Muppet Studios, evil oil baron, Muppets scattered all over the country, a few Moopets, plus a telethon, and you know there are going to be some crazy antics to follow.

Of course I couldn’t pass up to do a movie review with my main froggy squeeze next to me… (in this case a giant one eyed stuffed Kermit with Brian doing his best Kermit impression):

My review in a nutshell:  If you love the Muppets you won’t be disappointed.  Silly, fun, full of celebrity power, predictable (as all Muppet movies are) and just plain awesome.  If you aren’t familiar with the Muppets… What is wrong with you?

Don’t forget… The Muppets opens in theaters on November 23rd, 2011!!!

***Disney provided me and my family tickets to see The Muppets.  All opinions, stuffed frogs, and craziness are my own.

  1. I. LOVE. YOU. And I kinda might love your hubs. Not in a “gonna steal him” way. But in a “best sport ever” way. And the boys? Oh. My. Gosh. You are all the bestest. And I’m still jealous about the Muppet pre-showing. I MIGHT have to wait ’til Friday. What the???? I might pee.

    • I do love my family. Seriously… They put up with so many of my crazy ideas. But secretly they love it. Lara… you will adore the muppetness.

  2. I love your video! Your hubs is awesome…love “I’m a Muppet of a man” super cute!~

  3. Jessica @FoundtheMarbles says:

    Hilarious! I’m not a huge movie-goer but I can’t wait to take my kids to this movie.

  4. I can’t wait to see this! :)

  5. Best video ever. EVER.

  6. Oh dear. Brian is so quiet and reserved in person…You’d never know he was capable of such silliness. This video (and the many posts that have come before it) however, have made me realize a) Brian would do anything for you b) my family is not funny.


  7. We took two of our grandchildren to see it over Thanksgiving weekend. Cool movie!
