It's Time to Start the Music

My sister and I took Harper to see The Muppets this afternoon.

I loved it!

I have always been a Muppet fan, but the most recent Muppet movies haven't been so great. (Muppet Treasure Island, Muppets from Space I'm looking at you.) The movie had lots of fun musical numbers and the children in the theater seemed to enjoy it and find it funny, but the best parts (for me) were all the references to 80's pop culture.

It was rated PG, but I can't think of anything that I worried about Harper watching during the movie. (WHY are there no G-rated movies out there right now? Pet peeve!)

I am wondering how many of you have fond memories of the Muppets and whether you're planning on seeing the movie.

So glad to hear you loved it! We were thinking on going with our sitter tomorrow, but with our germs, we might wait. I remember the Muppets fondly, and I am somewhat sad that the kids don't have the same feelings for them. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

Mark and our two older boys took me to the the new Muppet movie for my birthday yesterday. We all loved it! They now are asking for Muppet items for Christmas and we've been watching movie trailers on the movie's website. Of course this is all from the boys who went through a long phase a few years ago of borrowing old seasons of the Muppet show from the (Pewaukee) library!
Happy Thanksgiving to your current family as well as the family you grew up with ~
