It's Time To Start the Music

Ohhh this movie takes me back!  I can vividly remember watching The Muppets tv show every week and looking forward to that hour all week long.  I love Kermit, Miss Piggy, Gonzo and the whole gang.  I especially love the two old men in the balcony.  They are quite the peanut gallery!  
The Muppets which was just released on DVD and Blue Ray a couple weeks ago does not disappoint.  Jason Segel  best known from the tv show How I Met Your Mother helped to write this movie and stars in it.  I think he did an excellent job at introducing The Muppets franchise to a new era.  He plays the brother to a muppet who he takes on a trip to Hollywood and it's there they discover the Muppets theatre is in trouble.  They devise a plan to save the Muppets.  It's a cute homage to this group of characters.  There are plenty of cameos from Jack Black, John Krasinski, Selena Gomez, Whoopi Goldberg, Dave Grohl, Feist and many more.  I love cameos:)  
My only dislike is the lack of Rizzo the Rat, one of my favourite muppets.  Other than that, it's fun for the whole family!  (Mum, this one is appropriate;)
