The Muppets (2011)

This is a solid movie. Walter lives with his human brother Gary (Jason Segel) in Smalltown. One night after a disappointing experience at an amusement park, they turn on their television and start watching The Muppet Show, and Walter instantly becomes a fan of the characters. As an adult, Gary decides to take his girlfriend Mary (Amy Adams), an elementary teacher, to Los Angeles for their anniversary. Mary reluctantly agrees to let Walter come along on their vacation so he can visit the Muppet Theater. When they arrive, the building is in disarray and abandoned; Walter suggests that they get all of the Muppets together for a new performance.

This is the ninth Muppet film; two of the others were television movies. The Muppet Show television series ran from 1976 to 1981. The theatrical release of the film is preceded by a Pixar short film titled Small Fry. This is the highest grossing film in the Muppets film series.
