The movie starts by showing a young puppet boy and his human brother growing up. The boy never felt like he fitted in, but when he rented a Muppet video from a shop he found something he really loved. The boy’s brother was going to take his girlfriend to LA, so he tags along to find the Muppet studio. However, when they arrive all is not what they expected. The studio has been abandoned for 10 years and evil villain Tex Richman wants to buy it and find the oil underneath. The little puppet boy Walter, his brother and brothers girlfriend try to track down Kermit the frog and get the Muppets back together. The Muppets need to raise 10 million dollars to buy back the studio so they get to work making a new show.
This movie appeals to all audiences with plenty of songs and dance, as well as humour for adults and children. As always, Miss Piggy steals the show with great one-liners and stubborn jokes. In addition, an all star cast and a number of cameo appearances makes the Muppet Movie the must see, feel good movie of the year.
