WHOAHHH...its holding at 97%....thats insane. Hugo is also 97%. Im seeing it tomorrow night, as I think it could be the surreal imaginative film Ive been waiting for since Mirrormask.

But you know why the Muppets is getting insane acclaim with critics who normally hate kids movies? Because it touches on a lot of the same themes and ideas explored and felt in other highly praised films like Midnight In Paris. That idea of dreaming for something that is missing, for wishing for a bygone era in the present. For believing in something...smart writing, adult realism. Some clever editing could turn this into a serious drama.
