14 months?  What are they cgi?

God I hope this one is better than the last one. The new songs were crap (Me Party? Really?) and it played too much like a 50's sitcom. Definitely lacking Jim Henson's brand of madness.

 Really StarlightGuard? The songs were great... the only thing I didn't like were the announcement of Stars (saying high to them by name) and the lack their of of stars. Like every survivng person on the muppet show wouldn't show up to help!

 I thoroughly enjoyed the new movie...first Muppet Movie since the Christmas Carol one that I liked.

Cheesy and corny, yes, but that was by design.  I'm looking forward to this new one.  Let's just hope they can get better star cameo's than Selena Gomez.

Looking forward to this movie since I liked the last one, but I agree with Dazzler, 14 months!?! Do they have to negotiate with Miss Piggy over pay or something?

The original songs are still great. I find myself singing "The Rainbow Connection" at times when I'm just walking about or messing with my flowers, but I really didn't enjoy the new stuff. The whistling bit was nice, I will admit.

I'm not going to say I could do better, but I don't think it lived up to Henson's Muppets.

I liked the new movie.  But I agree that the music and jokes just aren't up to the same par as the original.  But you gotta remember that Jim was part of the 60's and it really influences his story telling and songs.  The Muppet Movie had a lot of 60's theme to it and that laid back country road quality.  The Rainbow Connection song was a very Kumbaya good feelings type of song.  I don't think you'll see that kind of film making again.

New Muppet movie will be based on the Twilight theme and involve Muppet on Human sex.

 I just got done watching The Muppets again on demand, and I don't get all the hate for the new songs.  I thought they were great.  Gonna try singing "Pictures in my Head" at karaoke tonight, actually.  And if there was a lack of jokes, I thought the level of basic absurdity more than made up for it.  I kind of wish there were more celebrity cameos, but come on...they had MICKEY ROONEY in that mofo...and I always enjoy seeing Zach Galifianakis and NPH show up.  It may not have been perfect, but it was the first Muppet movie since "The Muppets Take Manhattan" to entertain me enough where I was able to forget that Kermit still doesn't sound quite right.
