- Reaction score
& here sits at the side of the living room ... with parents who are not very pleased about the new sighting =d
How did you see the movie early?Uch...Went to see The Muppets again yesterday on opening day here in England. Fair enough I went to one of the later screenings, but there was just me and my friend and about 9 other people in the whole screening. Again, to be fair, this is a cinema where I have never once seen more than about 20 people per screening, but it was a little disheartening.
It was also very interesting to be watching the movie with a complete cynic...gave the viewing a new edge, in that I found myself wishing the inspirational speeches would move forward a little faster to get to more Fun. (Then again, I still believe that everything in this movie was necessary to get us to a point where we believed in that amazing recreation of TMS at the end.)
Interestingly, Sam's "Say Yes!" line got a laugh from an otherwise unforgiving theater (said theater also laughed at Miss Piggy's entrance to the Muppet Theater before her fight with Miss Poogy, and at Walter's whistling, but at almost nothing else.)Sam seemed a bit underused, too. Was kind of hoping he'd get a speech or standout moment, but it never happened. I guess there's too many Muppets and only 90 odd minutes to fill. Next time.
...But not before they take out the garbage.Probably got cut because it had nothing to do with painting a house.
I'm so glad Tim Hill didn't do the sequel he planned, "The Muppets think about going to the Beach, but find out they had more house work to do and postpone that trip until they re-grout the bathroom"
