    The movie totally holds up for me. No doubt. It was the first Muppet movie I was able to go with my wife to, so that holds a special place in my heart. I still cry when Rainbow Connection starts and when they do the Muppet Show theme song. The movie means a lot to me, no doubt.

    The Muppets is the movie that brought me to Muppet fandom. I first saw Kermit appear on The Ellen Degeneres Show for a promotion, and went to watch the movie. After that, I searched for Muppet Show clips on YouTube, and fell in love ever since.

    This tagline from The Muppets DVD pretty much sums it up for those of us who rediscovered the laughter:

    I've noticed that in the lower right hand corner between Camilla and the bluebird (at about 0:41 in the clip and from 1:00 to 1:08 in the Muppet cast gallery before Gonzo's trumpet gag) is a blue-faced Muppet who has a grandmotherly appearance.

    Is she a member of Geri and the Atrics?

    I actually saw this for the first time last night. I'm pretty much a recluse. I don't go to theatres and I don't have much money to spend on DVDs. What little free cash I have goes to my toy collection. But last night The Muppets was on TV on a channel we usually don't get. Long story short, I loved it!
    The movie really was a love letter to fans of the Muppets and The Muppets themselves. I can see why this film is creating new fans.

    (sorry about the duplicate thread Pinkflower7783!:o)

    I can't believe a year has gone by already! There are so many awesome times I've had watching The Muppets. I'd say my favorite moment(beside the movie of course!) was the 2011 Dancing With The Stars performance of "Life's A Happy Song".:fanatic:

    No don't apologize! I should to you I misread your post last night until a member here corrected me your intention was a bit different! Like I said I was getting tired and probably should have logged off earlier! It's all good. :)

    It's a good film. I adored the characters and songs. I hope to see a second The Muppets; Possibly including a gal pal for Walter??

    I actually did watch the movie last night after watching the tree lighting appearance. What can I say I don't think it's possible I could love the film anymore then I already do. :)

    I'm not really big into Thanksgiving (just a bunch of stupid personal reasons to be honest) but last year, when The Muppets came out right before Thanksgiving... it totally gave me something to look forward to during that time of year. It was such a great movie and I loved every bit of it.

    My hat goes off to Jason Segel and Co. for bringing us a truly great movie. This was the Muppets' comeback film, and they could've really screwed it up and screwed up the future of the Muppets but, nope, they did a fantastic job with the movie and brought the Muppets into the spotlight again! :D

    If it hadn't been for this movie, the Muppets might not have had another opportunity for such a comeback. One year later, we are seeing the Muppets everywhere on television, the Internet, and lots of merchandise, which only provides more chances and opportunities for them. So even though I wasn't particularly fond of the movie when I saw it in a theater, I am glad that Disney released it because there is indeed an overwhelmingly positive public response to the Muppets. :)
