While the last few Muppet installments to hit theaters felt like kids movies that had adult appeal, this movie is clearly aimed to the adults that grew up with the Muppets, but it’s great fun for younger kids. My four year old loves the original Muppet Movie and Fraggle Rock, and he was right there with me watching The Muppets with glee. Click below to see my whole review.

I loved all the inside jokes and little details that aren’t necesarrily inappropriate for kids, they’re just not something they’re going to get unless they grew up watching the Muppet Show on TV. My favorite moment was Kermit taking a pause before opening the small circle door on the giant marquee and popping out like he did at the beginning of every episode. I love behind-the-scenes scenes (sorry) of historic television shows in movies. Like the Gong Show in Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. Anyway, the nostalgia is high, but the jokes are plenty in this installment.

Though I love the original The Muppet Movie, it does get a little touchy-feely in regards to following your dreams, letting people down, and facing your opposition head-on. This one had some moments in it, but a lesson-of-the-day was not near the forefront.

This movie is a lot of fun, there’s plenty of sight gags, well timed puns and random cameos. Though Henson and Oz were not involved with the project, it felt like it was definitely part of the Muppet canon.

The The Muppets (Wocka Wocka value pack) comes with the Blu-Ray with tons of features, such as commentary, out takes and a making of, a DVD for your car, and a digital copy for your portable device. There’s also a code to download the entire soundtrack, including Oscar® winning tune Man or Muppet.
