What do a plus size fashion editor, a casino performer and a worldclass plumber have in common?
Ignoring the fact that they are all former superstars, Kermit, Miss Piggy and friends have a serious problem on their hands. It is an issue of such magnitude that an entire movie was dedicated to their struggles.
The Muppets Movie, one of the most talked-about movie releases this year, hit the theaters on Nov. 23. In just five days, profits reached in upwards of $42 million, according to the official website.
Coming in second only to Twilight: Breaking Dawn, the Muppets Movie has far surpassed expectations of critics and fans alike. Aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes reported an impressive 98 percent of critics gave positive reviews.
"The Muppets is a triumph of simplicity, innocence and goofy jokes," said Amy Biancolli, a movie critic for the San Francisco Chronicle. "It's a triumph of felt."
With such a compelling story, how can one expect this movie to be anything less than epic? The theater in which the Muppets used to perform is in danger! Oil drills threaten the birthplace of stardom for these talented performers. It is time to take matters into their own hands.
Families everywhere can sit back and enjoy this trip down memory lane as the movie reintroduces the band of furry friends after years of personal success. They will reunite and save the day once more.
