I'm going to miss these kinds of movies when the last one gets too old to go. :)

Woohoo! We love the Muppets. This will be fun to see with my son.

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

I love the Muppets. I love that my daughters were raised on them and now their kids love them too. So great!

Rosey, thank you for your fun compliments and I love when you guys say "as usual" . That makes my DAY every TIME! ♥

Karen Glatt said...

Hi! I hope you are doing good and it has warmed up where you are! I have always loved the Muppets and this new movie looks like a lot of fun to see. I know my nephew would love to go see this movie with me!

Jen said...

I am ridiculously excited to see this movie! :)

MickiC said...

I love the Muppets movies! My daughter, who's 5, was watching this with me and she's so happy this is coming out :)

mail4rosey said...

I think it's going to be a fun one too, Daisy! :)

mail4rosey said...

You do always look great, you've got a knack for pulling those outfits together. :)

mail4rosey said...

It's supposed to be warmer tomorrow. It's not as cold as it was, but it's still pretty darn cold. ;)

mail4rosey said...

lol, I was like that with Frozen. ;)

mail4rosey said...

I love when the kiddo movies come out too! :)

Pat Hatt said...

Finally watched the last one a little bit ago, it was good, sure I'll watch this one in my hood

mail4rosey said...

I was a Sesame Street girl growing up, and hubby was a Muppet guy. I'm liking the latter more and more (and I still love Sesame St. too). :)

Tami Jardine said...

I hope that this comes to Trinidad. I am definitely in! Love the Muppets.

Ann Jones said...

I loved the Muppets growing up :) My youngest watched the lady gaga special with the muppets on Netflix and is no obsessed with the Muppets!

Lady Lilith said...

Sounds nice. The muppets are a great show for kids.

M Clark said...

Who doesn't like watching the Muppets? I remember watching the Muppet Babies cartoon growing up. Thank you for this review, can't wait to see the movie.

Momma Lew said...

Oh we will be there FOR sure!!!!!!!! My son is STOKKED for this!

Amanda McMahon said...

My kids would probably like this but few movies make it to India,s o we may catch it on DVD

DWei said...

Huh, did the last Muppet's movie do that well even?

mail4rosey said...

I hope it comes there for you too. :)

mail4rosey said...

It's fun when the stars come to the shows, especially if the kids already know them and like them. :)

mail4rosey said...

Agreed! :)

mail4rosey said...

I can't wait either because my youngest is at the perfect age to love movies. :)

mail4rosey said...

The kids are fun when they love the movies. It's one of my fave things to do w/the youngest and the teen. :)

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

I know my Grandson would be very interested in this. Most any Disney show interests him.

mail4rosey said...

DVDs are fun to watch with the kiddos too. :)

mail4rosey said...

I'd be surprised if all the Muppets didn't do good. Parents like a good movie to take the kiddos too, and they're not always so easy to find. :)

mail4rosey said...

I like Disney too. :)

alissa apel said...

I wish they'd bring Fraggle Rock back though. Same company, but for some reason I was more drawn to them.

mail4rosey said...

My husband loved The Muppets and Fraggle Rock!! In fact, we have a Fraggle Rock DVD he bought our son when he was too little to enjoy it, and I forgot all about it. I bet he's the perfect age now. Headed to the living room to find the DVD. :)

Theresa said...

No, sadly we will not be going to this one. I hated the last one they did. I couldn't wait to leave the theater. My niece actually did walk out when she went lol. I'll keep my fingers crossed this one is much better than the last for those who do chose to go see it :)

mail4rosey said...

I didn't see the last one, I'm sorry to hear you didn't like it. :( I think I'll go to this one, it'll be my first Muppets show in the theater. Cross your fingers for me that it's a goodie. :)

Brian Miller said...

i love the muppets....i did not see the last one either...i got a few bad reviews and did not want to ruin my childhood with yet another poor remake....

~ Noelle said...

i am a muppets fan - although broxton could care less..

Colette S said...

I get everything through our library on dvd so I wont be there, but we'll probably get it :)

mail4rosey said...

I would feel like that about Sesame St. I can't imagine a Sesame Street Disco re-make. ;)

mail4rosey said...

My little one loves to go to the movies, so I suspect he is going to be all in when it comes out. :)

mail4rosey said...

We borrowed the Sponge Bob movie from the library before the weekend started, now I'm running around singing, "I"m a goofy goober, yeah!" lolol
