After reading a couple posts in the Thanksgiving thread, figured I'd give this film its' own.
Is anyone else excited about this movie? Anyone have kids that are jumping out of their skin to see it?
And be honest, are there any folks in their adulthood who silently giggle every time one of the commercials comes on? I am a member of a household which has been excited about this movie since it was announced. It's finally here and I think between those closest to me as well as surrounding friends, my whole circle might implode the moment they all sit down in the theater to see it.
This thing has been marketed to death, which had me suspicious, like maybe it's a big turd that's going to fall flat. But I have a feeling that with Jason Segel and Amy Adams as the humans and a pretty safe premise this thing cannot fail.
Rottentomatoes is giving it the coveted 100% out of an N of 30 reviews. Not too shabby.
Segel wrote a tweet while on the promotion circuit, stating:
"Last week in Mexico City, a 40 yr old Interviewer started weeping, mumbling in Spanish and hugging Kermit. Everyone but me felt super weird..."
That whole universe cuts through a bunch of bullshit and brings a boatload of happy to a lot of people. I hope this movie re-enforces that concept.
