We never actually see the contract in TMM. That's one thing that got me annoyed, becuase then we see it in The Muppets.
Wow I guess Orson Wells had more sinister plans than we thought!And the contract in The Muppets says they sign away the theater and the name...never gives any implementation of that in TMM.
LOL, Peter Linz is one of the most exciting assets going. His Walter character is a watershed moment...people had their doubts about Walter a year ago, but my goodness that little guy in the film and in youtube interviews is just very much amazing.Beaker, I should have known that after years of waiting for this movie, that when it came out, you would be ungrateful.
All you can do is complain about what was NOT in the film and say "the film could have been better"? Read that again out-loud.
That's gratitude for you.
This is nothing special, every movie ever made has had scenes cut out of the final product. Besides the running time, they most likely had other reasons for making the cuts.
It is what it is.
They could just have not made the movie at all, would you have liked that better? That way, you would not have anything to complain about, and you would not have had to experience any disappointment.
Its a good thing that Peter Linz said he is avoiding reading reviews.
LOVE!No it couldn't have! The movie was perfect!
I was too!!! I love Kermit and Miss Piggy!! They were so cute in the movie!!! It's so nice to see in interviews now Kermit admitting him and Piggy have been together for a long time!!!LOVE!
And also, having read the originally pitched script, my feelings are, "This movie could have been a lot WORSE!" I think that Jason, Bobin, the good folks behind the scenes at Disney, Pixar writers and probably Muppet-insider-on-staff-writers managed to make a revolutionary Muppet movie that blew away almost everyone's expectations.
Perhaps this movie can be like Terminator 2 and have new alternate versions released every few years with scenes added and taken away.
I think because I was more focused on the "Together Again" storyline and the "Pig/Frog Love" storyline, I wasn't to bothered by the patchy work on the "Oil Plot".
We don't know to what extent, but I'm sure Jim and Kirk guided them through the film. If nothing else, we have proof of their hand in the "Kermit wouldn't live in a mansion" part by, let's face it, a FAR better concept of a house Kermit and Piggy bought back during happier times that Kermit still maintains and holds onto singlehandedly. That's much more in tone with the Muppets and the overall movie than just a success spoiling Kermit tone.And also, having read the originally pitched script, my feelings are, "This movie could have been a lot WORSE!"
