I can't help myself. I'm Muppet Mad at this point.
You'll see for yourself in a very few days, and when you do, I'm willing to bet that if you've ever loved The Muppets, you'll find yourself utterly defenseless when the film comes out.
For example, there's the music. There are a few classic callbacks, including a freakshow casino jingle version of the "Rainbow Connection" that is sort of amazing, and it's nice to hear those old faves again. The new material, though, is just as strong, which is a really welcome thing. This is fun movie music, smart and funny and sweet, and even something as potentially terrible as Chris Cooper rapping in character as an evil billionaire named Tex Richman works on repeat listens.
But what the Muppets ultimately gets right is the characters, and recognizing what made them icons in the first place. And they are. They really are. Anyone underestimating the deeply-seeded love that many people have for these characters hasn't seen it close up. Jason Segel just recently signed up for Twitter, and in the first day or so of having his account, he told the story of a guy in his 40s who had a breakdown during an interview with Kermit in Mexico City, and the guy just started to hug Kermit while crying and mumbling in Spanish, and everyone except Jason got weirded out.
