Jim Henson's long-popular creations get a major, hugely entertaining reboot in this comedy-fantasy that reunites Kermit and Miss Piggy to restore their former base of operation and save it from the oil tycoon (Chris Cooper) who wants it for his own questionable purposes.
Jason Segel ("How I Met Your Mother") and Amy Adams are well-chosen to lead the human part of the cast as the longtime Muppet fans who assist their felt idols, the result being high-spirited fun for all ages. Billy Crystal and Jack Black are among the familiar faces who have cameos. DVD extras: outtakes. *** (PG: AS) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
