Worst Muppet Film

    Yes, that would be interesting, but who's lives has Fozzie changed in the Muppets?

    I think that Statler and Waldorf would have been quite different people without him, and certainly Chuckie would never have existed ;) But, who else has he influenced enough for them to change if he was gone?

    Fozzie

    I think this kind of goes back to what I was saying about them all being connected. Of course they all have had an effect on eachother...think of the Muppet Show with out Fozzie. Think if Kermit had never discovered Him at the El-Sleezo Cafe, they all have had an effect on eachother, and are all who they are because of eachother. That is what gives each of them, and each of us purpose in life.

    I mean God even says she does not have to worry about kermit because he always does the right thing, and everything does work out right in the end.

    By 'God' I persume you mean "The Boss".

    I kinda find it hard to get my head aroudn WHopie Goldburg being God. ;)

    But seriosuly, I found her very funny, but somewhat disturbing as that persona. A coffee shrub? Spongebob? Tic-tac-toe thing or the squiggly-bug thing?

    All very funny lines, and laugh out loud moments, but with her being God, it kinda made me feel a bit popped, if you know what I mean. I'd rather the Muppets stayed out of religion, and kept to the world. You know?

    Yeah I really agree, although I did not find Whopie to be all that funny. I prefer the Muppets to be moral, but like you say keep religion out of it. Although in conext of the film it worked fairly well. I thought it was way lame that inorder to get kermit back to the real world the angel had to spit on him.

    They could have coem up with a much better plot device than that, but then none of it was very clever. :p

    Yes, and Danniel seriously got on my nerves, that and looked like an icecream man from Hello Dolly.

    I think the Boss & Daniel sequences went on a little long, but I thought Whoopi and David Arquette worked well.

    My initial reaction to seeing Whoopi Goldberg in that role wasn't positive, but that was based more on her persona than on her performace. In VMX, she was actually very low-key and didn't chew the scenery like I expected her to.

    As for David Arquette, I think this may be the best acting he's ever done. I thought he was very sincere and interacted very well with Kermit. He obviously loves working with the Muppets (he's much better here than in MFS) and I like him in this a lot.

    But yeah, the spitting thing was stupid.

    HMMMM Plastic Trees

    I think Danniel was hamming it up a bit much, like when he reads from the book about what to do with Kermit wishing he had never been born. It seemed to me a little contrived, and I thought he could have played the roll a bit straighter, lending a bit more realisum to the sequence. Instead I just got a very plastic feeling, that they were on a set with fake snow, fake trees and a lot of over acting.

    I would say my least favorite Muppet movie is Muppet's Take Manhattan. I just never got into it.
  9. dwayne1115 Well-Known Member

    wow i love all the muppet movies
  10. The Good Doctor New Member

    Love /Vs Hate

    I love the Muppets, I always have. And like any childhood friend they have had high points and low points. Over all while some things have shocked and disappointed me, I honestly have to say I have enjoyed parts if not all of what they have done.

    I still have to say that IAVMMC is kind of the worst thing i have seen them do. :attitude:
  11. Drtooth Well-Known Member

    I think Oz will be worse... at least Parody is more original than blindly retelling a story... and without Jerry Juhl's writing too!
  12. Vic Romano Active Member

    Yeah, I've got a bad feeling about the Wizard of Oz too.
  13. christyb New Member

    Hey guys. Give it a chance. We haven't even seen it yet.
  14. Vic Romano Active Member

    Oh, I will remain hopeful, and I will be open minded... and I guess that's all I can do.
  15. christyb New Member

    Don't worry. I think we all are apprehensive about it.
  16. Drtooth Well-Known Member

    Let's just hope the NEXT movie will be much better.

    Then again, even in a bad Movie the Muppets are always in top form.... the writing stinks the cameos stink, but the Muppets are always good.
  17. Handy Andy New Member

    Does "Elmo in Grouchland" count? Because if it does, then it sucks the most.
  18. Uncle deadly New Member

    whaa!

    what, Jerry Juhl is gone that sucks.
  19. Daffyfan2003 Active Member

    Hmmm. I haven't seen Kermit's Swamp Years so I can't comment on that. I don't know why so many people dislike VMC though. I thought that was one of the best. Oh, well. Everyone's entitled to their opinion.

    I'd have to say my least favorite Muppet Movie was the Christmas Carol. I just never thought it was quite as great at the others. Then again, I haven't seen it in years, so I'd be willing to give it another chance.
  20. christyb New Member

    Then give it another chance!!! (Can you tell it's my favorite LoL). However as cute as Swamp Years was...It's not quite up with par as far as Muppet Movies go. Nothing here recently has been.
