We caught The Muppets tonight. The film bears thematic relationships to The Artist, and it is of course a musical (with, it dawned on me as I listened, many of the original songs by Bret McKenzie of Flight of The Conchords). Growing up with the show on TV (and Kermit on Sesame Street), I was a definite fan. But the movies never really appealed to me very much, as is the case with Star Trek.

So, this film is pretty good, and I enjoyed it. But I would definitely suggest NOT watching it the day after The Artist. The films are in totally different leagues. I mean obviously. One’s a musical.
