    Oh yeah, Amy Adams is one of my favorite actresses.. It's just that the character of Mary seemed more about Gary's subplot from the trailers... from the book I learned she is so much more than that.

    This picture being captioned as Rizzo makes me worried. We've seen this weird looking rat since the first trailer, could it just be a new version of Rizzo? I mean, we've only seen this rat, never Rizzo.

    Rizzo appears in the crowd during Kermit's big "I believe in you" speech in the first official trailer, next to Pepe.

    Until I saw these pictures, I thought that shot of the gang was in the auditorium. I hadn't noticed 'till now that it's backstage. And it looks like the backstage has an extra floor.

    Random question...

    Does the novel address the reason for the empty arches in the theme song?

    I got the book. It's a good read. So much I'd like to comment on yet I don't want to spoil the film (well, maybe I will spoil the film.... With money by seeing it many times!)

    Up to Chapter 5!!

    Not sure so far, the book feels very different from the clips and images, I ought to wait to see the film, but the temptation is too great!!
    I also read today Frogs are Funny................it took like 20 mins cover to cover!!

    Frogs are Funny seems like a mini-coffee table type quote book. I'm surprised it would take that long to read. I really need to get to one of the few remaining bookstores and thumb that thing over. Seems like a nice little book to own.

    It does take that long. Over 200 pages and while there aren't so many words as such, someone reading for the first time will take their time looking at the photos and imagining/guessing what each quote is from.

    Maybe I'm just a slow reader! Hehe

    Up to chapter 9 of the novel it's so much better than I first thought and I want to go see the film NOW!!

    lol the ending is uhhh just see for yourself
  19. dwmckim

    dwmckim Well-Known Member

    muppetlover123, don't worry about the ending. I doubt the movie itself will end like that. Books like these (ESPECIALLY when they come out BEFORE the movie) typically change the ending or cut off before the real one so the movie's ending isn't spoiled for theater viewing.

    Besides: worst-case scenario: even if (and that's a big if) the movie does end like that, then that just screams "Sequel on the way..."

    Finished! The end was a little disappointing so I hope your right that they will change it in the film. I'm sure this is a very diluted version of the story. Watching a clip still makes me smile so I'm still looking forward to the film.
