The Muppets

In the forgettable, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Segal writes and acts in a musical of Dracula and is surrounded by Muppets, he also shows his penis - but not to Muppets. That would just be sick. Harvey Keitel showed his penis in the original Bad Lieutenant. It symbolized his vulnerability. I don't think there was a point to Segal showing his. While Segal may have the edge in that category, he is no Keitel as an actor.

The first thing that popped into my head when the trailer started was, "The band, man! Let's put the band back together..." The Blues Brothers.

It looks like it's a movie about bringing the old Muppets (band) together to make a movie. Why couldn't they have made a sequel to Muppets in Space? How about Muppet the Barbarian? Maybe a superhero movie called Muppetman. That would be fun. A movie about making a movie or a story of someone writing a story is beyond unoriginal.

It's sad because Muppets are original. I loved Sesame Street and the Muppet Show. I like Amy Adams and I even like Segal. They both seem genuine.

The problem is that this trailer just looks so lame. I'll have to pass, for now.


  1. All I can think about right now is Harvel Keitel crying loudly like a baby and walking away.

    Should have been a muppet that popped him in the head.

  2. Bad Muppet. Hilarious.

    Thanks for reading.
