CinemaBlend - I would run through fire for Kermit the Frog, if he asked me to. Maybe it’s just nostalgia, but I don’t think I would have felt or said the same walking out of a theater after seeing Muppets from Space in 1999. The Muppets have been in decline since Jim Henson’s death. They’ve had moments, but haven’t really been right since their creator was taken from us, all too soon on a day back in 1990. They’ll never be quite the same again, but The Muppets captures a larger share of Jim Henson’s magic than anything else has since his death. It’s more than enough to make this one of the best movies you’ll see this year.
