Directed by James Bobin with Amy Adams, Jason Segel, Chris Cooper
ArtsEmerson is pleased to offer its members the chance to see a special advance screening of The Muppets before its theatrical release on Nov. 23! On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world's biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Segel) and Mary (Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (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. Or, change it to the complete sentence which is: With secret, signature, celebrity cameos, “The Muppets” hits the big screen Nov. 23, 2011.
"The scene where Kermie begs me to come back to Hollywood is the funniest scene in the movie. I’m hilarious, and the frog isn’t half bad either.” – Miss Piggy
