    I'm sick to death of hearing people say "Jim Parsons was the best thing about the new Muppet movie". Like, seriously?! It was a fantastic movie! it seems to be just the kids who are fans of The Big bang theory but he's in it for a song and that's it.

    I think another reason might be because it was so unexpected.

    But when you consider how good The Muppets was holistically, then it should be taken holistically.

    Not to say that 'Man or Muppet' wasn't genius, of course.

    My daughter was the same way...she just thought it was awesome he was in the movie and did that song...I don't get it either...it was good and funny and all...but the best thing about the movie...Ummmmm no.

    think about it this way...his cameo was the only one not released...and for obvious reasons....so his cameo made the song that much more random and hilarious and his cameo really is great

    Its the whole mindset that if something is popular, then it is cool. Big Bang Theory is popular, therefore, in the closed minded heads of certain people, that was the only thing was "cool" or worth it :/

    I agree, it's the unexpected quality that makes people remember it more. And it was definitely a fun moment, the entire audience was laughing in my theater, lol.

    I don't even know who that guy is, so when people were all excited about who Walter saw in the mirror, I was like, "Huh?" :p

    And I spoiled the freaking thing by finding it out on Muppet Wiki like a DAY before I saw the movie. And I saw it opening day.

    I guess it's just personal preference. I do think he's a very good comedic actor.

    have to agree....i think it comes down to peoples preferences...just like im sure some people didnt like other cameos in the movies or even Jason and Amy...or how some Muppets looked

    think about it this way also...we (all us here) are looking at it from a Muppet fans point of veiw...question are those that say "jim parsons was the best part" die hard muppet fans or just casual Muppet fans when they see stuff at spencers or a Christmas special comes on, do they know others beyond kermit, chef, elmo, and beaker with out looking it up..that could be the factor too....but look at the good of what comes out of it...think when they are talking to thier friends and say "hey man did you see Sheldon in the new Muppet movie, no? you you have to check it out its awesome! he sings a song about being a Muppet thats hilarious" thats more word of mouth publicity the Muppets are getting.

    now like what happened to Drtooth sucks..i know ive been there...a spoiler like that should never have been posted...its why i stayed away from the movie talk, sneak peaks and almost everything for a few months before it came out i didnt want to see the movie before i got in the theater

    I'm a lifelong Muppet fan and the Jim Parsons scene was definitely one of my favorite parts of the film.

    Too bad I didn't see that on there. I saw the movie early, and I went around on Muppet Wiki looking for spoilers to take off.

    Oh, that explains it. I don't watch the show. He did make a great human Walter, though.

    i didnt mean the die hard muppet fans in a negative way or that we cant enjoy and love that scene more than scenes invloving the Muppets......more just are those few saying it was the best scene that seem to be focusing on it to the original poster or those it bothers...if maybe those that say it arnt big muppet fans
