In Movie Theaters November 23, 2011
The About face: Kermit the Frog and his muppet pals put on a show to save their old theater.
The Wild side: In the 2011 reboot of The Muppets big screen franchise, Jason Segel is living with a Muppet, the newest, Walter.
On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets' former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. With secret, signature, celebrity cameos, The Muppets recharges a nearly forthy year old big screen franchise.
During an exclusive interview with Wild About Movies, Jason Segel, who wrote the movie, as well as stars, promises no full frontal human nudity.
