    I'll bite, how many?

    The most popular villains of this year ARE:

    1. Voldermort

    2. Decepticons

    3. Blackbeard and the Spaniards.

    4. Lord Shen (Kung Fu Panda)

    5. The police in Fast Five

    6. and Vampires or Werewolves...


    In order to buy their theater back from Tex Richman, the Muppets get the gang back together and put on one last show. They sell this idea to a TV network who agrees to air it when their top show, Punch Teacher, gets sued. Real bunch of communists there....

    SPOILER ALERT.

    They fail to raise the 10 Million, but Tex Richman gets hit in the head with a bowling ball accidentally thrown by Gonzo and he has a change of heart.

    Are the jackoff idiots on Fox News really serious...???

    Dave Grohl plays the drummer for a Reno lounge act called the Moopets.

    but it's silly to say the Muppet are Commies.
    Always, eh... Here's the top movies of this year, can't find one...


    You mean commies who sell their TV show idea to a network and then go into production???

    BTW, Tex Richman was also going to manage the Moopets and that's why he wanted the rights to the Muppets characters...

    These kind of "Movies are biased" type of complaints make me shrug. I felt the same way when the left was going on and on Transformers being a propoganda tool for the military, or when Iran suggested 300 was anti-iranian propoganda.

    Actually, the subject line of a kids film could and should have been something other than corporate America. Alice in Wonderland and and Snow White type plots lend more opportunity for greater fantasy and story line. On either side of the isle this is supposed to be for kids. Before they know it they will not be kids and they cannot go back. I raised my kids with the idea that every day should be magic because from the end of childhood to the grave much of living is decisions and responsibility. It is sad how we subject our kids to make them think like us. "#$%& us!!
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    It's less about the muppets being commies and more about the screenplay writer being lazy and pushing a liberal cliche of a story.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
