The Muppets

Reporter: Cassam Looch

 

Release date: 10 February 

Starring: Amy Adams, Jason Segel and Chris Cooper

 


 

Looking for another dose of retro satisfaction? Well we're delighted to report that 'The Muppets' deliver on the front and then some. 

Whether you grew up with the puppets or not (we're more of the 'Muppet Babies' era than the earlier TV shows), this film will put a wide smile on your face. It's funny, musical and even touching in places, and that's in no small part to the human stars. 

 

Whereas our Muppets have a relatively easy time of convincing the audience about their credentials, it's the human stars that have the real task ahead of them. Self-confessed super-fan Jason Segel is great fun, but it's Amy Adams who steals it with a charming performance reminiscent of her outstanding turn in Disney's 'Enchanted'. 

 

The musical numbers are all good, and there are some incredibly clever cameos scattered throughout the movie.
