    I'll definitely be watching it again later today. OMG feels so good to be saying I can now watch it whenever I want! :D

    Oh my gosh! MMW's Amazon Instant Video is up to #26 in the "Movies and TV on Blu-Ray and DVD" category. Looks like Disney's going to get tons of money after all :). Hopefully, it just keeps going up. Meanwhile, the Blu-Ray plummeted to #64, and the DVD to #93, not good, but the Instant Video is still raking in the dollars.

    I finally watched it today and I absolutely enjoyed it. There were lots of things I enjoyed about it, including:
    Quongo's background appearance behind Beautiful Day Monster in the Dublin show
    Thog and Marvin Suggs's background appearances on the train
    Angel Marie's cameo as the gulag chef
    The nationality references used in Berlin and Madrid (Christoph Waltz, a German actor in Germany and Salma Hayek, a Mexican actress in Spain)
    Blind Pew and Black Dog's cameos at the gulag
    Something So Right (I thought that was cool, with getting the point of view with every Muppet [Miss Piggy, Dr. Teeth, Floyd, Pepe, Lew Zealand, Scooter, Link Hogthrob, and Beaker]
    Uncle Deadly playing the organ at the wedding
    Beauregard driving the train
    Bobby Benson's appearance at the climax of the film
    Wayne's partial background appearance at the train station
    Crazy Harry using his explosives to disappear during the Interrogation Song
    Spamela Hamderson, Carter, Mahna Mahna, The Snowths, Afghan Hound, and Howard Tubman appearing during the wedding.

    To a partial extent, yeah. But besides that, the songs were my favorite part too.

    Did anyone else notice Constantine using his metal teeth to escape from the rope net Animal trapped him in during the wedding scene?

    This is really awesome. The Amazon Instant Video is #21 now in the "Movies and TV" category on Amazon. That's really awesome. The Blu-Ray is at a mediocre #66, and the DVD at #81.

    Maybe, everybody looked at this movie, said, " I'll get this on Amazon Instant Video, Blu-Ray, and DVD when it comes out," because it seems that's what they all did.

    I bought the last blue ray copy at our Toys R Us Yesterday :D So it is selling (Given they probably had more in the back, but still)

    I should mention my local Disney store put out a bunch of the plushes and pillows out near the registers. Hopefully they'll sell well.

    I hope they do, as well. I don't have a local Disney store, but I would totally buy the pillows and plushes I don't have if I could.

    I'm thinking the DVD/Blu-ray are doing better in sells then it did when it was in theaters. I could be wrong, but that is what it seems like to me.

    I think so, as well. I know MMW didn't sell very well in theaters, but I know that the Blu-Ray and DVD are selling very quickly..

    apparently a lot of people watch Digital Media on Tablets and such
    Well with the price of movie tickets can you blame people? in the past I would have seen The Muppets and MMW About 7 or 8 times each but with the price of movie tickets and personal Money problems I can only see a movie one time in the theater and that is even with a $4.50 discount theater in my town. :(

    That's true. What's the point of paying more than $10 to watch a movie in theaters, and if you go as a family like me, more than $60, to watch a film that could be spoiled by some child's crying or some guy's annoying commentary, when if you just wait five months you can watch the film for less than $30 anytime you want, and in the comfort of your own home.

    I love the Movie Theater, it is a place to escape from my everyday problems for a couple Of hours but with the high price of movie tickets I just don't have the money to do it as much as I used to, at my regal for a show past 4:00PM it costs $12.00 or so for a regular movie ticket and that's not even including the 3-D or IMAX that is like $20.00 to $30.00 I just cant do it as much as I used to, I wish I could and I think this is the same thing for a lot of other people in America :(

    I saw MMW in the theater after it had been in the theater for three weeks, the theater was empty just me and my dad, it was like a private screening it was great me and my dad loved the movie. For The Muppets in 2011 me and my dad went to see it at our local Regal in week one of its release and besides me and my dad the only people in the theater were a Woman and her 3 year old Daughter, my dad and me loved The Muppets as well. out of the two movies I love them both but I loved The Muppets the best it was like a love letter to the fans about why we love the Muppets so much. but sadly I could only see each of the new Muppets movies once.......

    I think Walter was supposed to be us Muppet Fanatics and that is what made him and the film so relatable !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    OH MY GOSH GUYS THIS IS GOOD NEWS FOR MMW. The Amazon Instant Video is up to #14 in the Amazon "Movies and TV on DVD and Blu-Ray" category! I thought it was hopeless, but this could end up breaking the top ten! Meanwhile the Blu-Ray is dying at #80, and the DVD is out of the top 100 at #142.

    I know the old saying is don't judge a book by its cover, but I have the DVD cover art is terrible. It looks bootleg... that's how bad it is, it looks like a bootleg DVD: the cover art looks like something some guy whipped up in Photoshop, printed it out, then slipped it into the case.
