    You didn't like the Frackle idea?

    Well, there goes my creative juices down the drain!

    That could be really funny! It sounds very Muppety! Give it a chance!

    Well, It is Muppety but I know lots of people who would get to that point in the film and the rest would be just noncense. Why do they need to get proff that he didn't counterfeit Frackles? Why can't they ask the Frackels?

    I am thinking of posting the outline on here soon so that you can all send me your comments suggestians etc so that we can get on with the writing.

    I also want to know what you think Kermit should be counterfeiting.

    I meant, what is Kermit meant to be counterfeiting of course.

    That's the whole point! It is nonsense, and that brings us back to The Muppet Movie! How many times in that did you think it was just nonsense? Not that it's not the most emmotionally driven Muppet film, but there were points in that where it is just nonsense! That's what makes good comedy! We're not making the first ever fully serious Muppet film! We're trying to top VMMCM! Hae it funny as possible, but also have it very emotional. Sorry, that's just the way I feel.

    If you really don't like the counterfeit Frackles, we can take it out. Just thought it would be funny.

    Actually, let's put it to a vote. Who here would think it funny if Kermit were arrested for counterfeiting Frackles? (not Fraggles, mind you. Although, that might be twice as funny. Hmmph. How about Fraggles, Beau?):D

    Besides, you don't need to think everything through. I go to a movie, I just sit there and enjoy it. I try not to think about how many times someone breaks the laws of physics. The Matrix? Total nonsense! Any Star Trek film? Complete nonsense! Star Wars? So much nonsense, I can't even begin to list it. And those aren't even comedies! Austin Powers? Total nonsense! Tommy Boy? Total nonsense! MIB? Complete nonsense! See? You don't need a film that you can understand for it to be good! Dumb and Dumber you don't even want to begin to think about!

    By the way, anyone see a commercial yet for Dumb and Dumberer?

    Sorry for yelling, Beau. Friends?:)

    yes, i have seen the preview for dumb and dumberer....its what hollywood folk call a tease cause it doesn't show any scenes of the new movie, just the title....

    just some movie lingo i had to share..

    Technically, it's called a teaser trailer, but let's get back on trakc now.

    WOAH!!! that's exactly how i feel!

  12. Super Scooter

    Super Scooter Well-Known Member

    So, what do you think should be counterfeit? Frackles? Fraggles? Money? Something else? What?
  13. sarah_yzma

    sarah_yzma Well-Known Member

    something a little odd..but something not totally silly...like umm umm....a disk with secret info that was snuck into a bag he was carrying or something....

  14. Super Scooter

    Super Scooter Well-Known Member

    Okay, guys. I think we know what we're going to do with that. Gonna go with an old idea and go for the rubber chickens.

    Anymore ideas?
  15. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    OK I'll have to be happy with Ruber Chickens then.

  16. sarah_yzma

    sarah_yzma Well-Known Member

    i don't know if i like rubber chicken either...isn't that a tad silly? maybe a chicken statue that might be better.....of course then you kinda look like a copy of MC, but if you play your cards right, you can get rid of that quickly!

  17. ryhoyarbie

    ryhoyarbie Well-Known Member

    i'd have to go with money....no one will get the rubber chickens...although it's a muppet movie so anything is possible..

  18. sarah_yzma

    sarah_yzma Well-Known Member

    yeah a true fan would get rubber chickens, but most people would start to wonder about the company's sanity!!!

  19. Super Scooter

    Have any of you ever seen a comedy??? A Muppet Movie??? Monty Python even??? It's just funny! Silly, but that makes good humor! (not the ice cream)

    I'm sorry, Beau. I figured since you suggested it in your last letter that you liked it. Sorry.

    We want the thing he is accused of counterfeiting to be something funny because otherwise, we have very little to work on. So far, our outline has very little room for comedy, except for with Gonzo, and it's going to be tough trying to make it funny.

    We can go with money if it's so important to you that it is. Monopoly money, maybe?

  20. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    I think your wrong Scoot. We have pleanty of room for comady. The whole thing is comedy, BUT we can't have rubber chickens because of the Rubber Chicken Factory bits!!! It wouldn't make sence.
