"The Muppets": What made you laugh

    For most people on here, we had our tearing up/crying moments throughout the film. But which parts of the film had you in stitches? Not just a few "hehs" and chuckles?

    For me it was the whole butchering of Rainbow Connection in Reno by the Moopets. That is such an evocative, powerful and deeply meaningful song...so to have it destroyed in that manner, I was just busting up so much.

    The part EVERYONE roared was the Jim "Sheldon Cooper" Cameo. Ive gotten everyone I know obsessed with that show, and so many people just adore the show and Sheldon. So that moment was PURE gold, totally unexpected. SO GLAD I didnt know that ahead of time as a spoiler

    Also loved every time Animal said with that dour droll manner "innn controllllll".

    Jim Parson's cameo. I could barely focus on the song because i was cracking up so much. Brilliant.

    Haha, really? I actually gasped out loud when I heard it. How dare they blaspheme these beloved lyrics?!?! Well, actually, it was really funny....

    I was cracking up by Gonzo when he blew up his company and said "people of the world, I will never hold a plunger again."

    I thought Ms. Piggy was hilarious in that one bit where she karate chopped Miss Poogy and said "There can only be one "Miss Piggy", and that is MOI!!!" And that one part where Ms. Piggy hits her head on the table a few times. And the one where UD does a Maniacal laugh, and he says to his boss (who fell down to the street) "Now THAT'S a maniacal laugh!!!!!" There were other parts that I thought were hilarious too, but I can't remember which ones.
    I also forgot about whenever Animal says "In controoooooool...."

    Rowlf's montage scene had me laughing a good bit. Also Rowlf's "awkward" line when the gang is turned away after thinking they were getting the go-ahead was a favorite of mine, too.

    The "Man or Muppet" sequence was a lot funnier than I remember. And I laughed a lot at many of the visual gags in the opening "Life's a Happy Song" number.

    I said this in another thread but all the "Walter throwing" scenes.

    Anytime Walter screamed

    When they found Beauregard in the closet

    The ones I recall were: "What the Wocka?!" and "I once waited a whole year for September!"

    Jack Black getting kidnapped was great, especially when they try explaining it to Kermit, and Lew Zealand's line afterwards... "Mr. The Frog, we decided that a celebrity is not a people!"

    "That's nothing, I once waited a whole year for September..." Loved this, because in a way it reflects how long we fans have waited for this movie lol

    Sweetums... "I wanna save the theater, too! Not again!" (I was laughing and applauding at this one... very nice touch to the film.)

    Man Or Muppet

    Wayne & Wanda's make-out scene (who woulda guessed they'd get a funny spot?)

    And pretty much anything Bobo said or did... "A lil geriatric humor."

    I also loved the part where Miss Poogy says "Hey Fozzie! I'd like you to meet a friend of mine!" and Foozie says "Wocka Wocka!!!" Foozie looks more like a gangster rapper than anything else in the movie.
