So let's start things off with the following:
I never watched Muppets in my life before the new flick. I didn't like how the characters looked, but with the great reviews and $2 Tuesdays at the Dolphin Theatre I gave it a shot and man was it great.
It's not just a kids movie, its funny for all ages.
Go check it out if you haven't already. I highly recommend it. Just check out the reviews on rotten tomatoes: The Muppets - Rotten Tomatoes
One of the year's best, although it wasn't quite the memorable year for movies either.
