The Muppets

Suffers from THE LEGO MOVIE syndrome, in that it maintains the irritatingly commonplace belief that as long as a film is self-conscious of its lazy comedic and narrative tropes, that all of its sins can be absolved. So much of the “get it! we’re self aware!” (and often straight-up cringe)-type humor falls flat so repeatedly that other than a few memorable musical sequences, there just isn’t too much to take away from this besides the crushing realization that you just spent one hundred minutes of your life watching a failed attempt at getting by on charm and nostalgia: pumped out by the wonderful folks at Walt Disney Pictures. “Fart shoes!”
