We had purchased a copy of THE MUPPETS for our kids but got so much more than a movie. I have always been a fan of the muppets. I remember watching The Muppet Show as a child and dreaming about being their special guest. I spent many afternoons in costume, pretending to be in my dressing room and of course heading to the stage for a big number.
As I sat and watched the movie with my kids, I could not help but smile. I found myself overflowing with joy. I sat there so happy watching my favorite childhood characters brought back to life. Now I don’t want to give away the plot, but it will take you down memory lane. I kept wondering if my cousin Jen had seen this movie yet. Would she have the same nostalgic feelings? Would it make her think of me the way I couldn’t stop thinking about her and so many great memories as I watched? Does she remember playing muppets? I had Animal and Kermit dolls and she had Fozzie and Scooter.
My kids laughed and sang and I knew a new generation of Muppet fans had begun. I can’t help but wonder, is it the characters that I love so or the connection it gives me to Jen. I totally recommend this movie to all Muppet fans and those who enjoy a stroll down memory lane.
