"The Muppets" is the tale of two brothers -- puppet Walter and human Gary (Jason Segel). For the tenth anniversary of his dating his girlfriend Mary (Amy Adams), Gary plans to take her to Los Angeles.
Of course, Gary has to bring Walter along. Gary and Mary are innocuous white bread. Walter is the ham in their sandwich.
In LA, the odd trio visits the decrepit, vacant Muppet Studios, and avid fan Walter finds out that it is going to be torn down by villainous oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper).
Richman is a hiss-worthy villain. His mantra is, "maniacal laugh." And Cooper does a spirited, incongruous rap praising greed.
If the Muppets don't raise US$10 million immediately, a contract states the Studio will fall to the villain, who has evil plans to destroy it.
The Muppets have to be brought together again for a benefit to save their studio. It seems like an impossible task. They are spread across the country in various states of decline and deterioration.
Kermit the Frog is now holed up in a sprawling Bel Air mansion, which he once dreamed of sharing with his former flame, Miss Piggy, who has gone on to become Vogue's "plus-size" editor in Paris. Consummate entertainer Fozzy Bear is slumming it in Reno with a tribute band dubbed the Moopets; Gonzo is consumed by his work as CEO of the plumbing company Gonzo's Royal Flush; and Animal is seeking treatment at the Fresh Pathways anger management clinic.
But never underestimate the power of the past and the peculiarities of the present. Walter struggles to save the Muppets he loves.
