A longtime fan is dismayed to find his felt-and-fuzz idols disbanded and the historic Muppet Studios abandoned and threatened by a developer. He vows to get the band back together and “put on a show” to raise money to restore the gleefully insane troupe to its former glory. This, in time-honored tradition, involves a lot of clever singing (incl. “The Rainbow Connection”) and dancing, the telling of self-aware jokes and several high-profile cameos. Though this fun flick may appeal more to nostalgic adults than to kids, it will put a smile on everyone’s face, and what’s better than that? Mah na mah na! (98 min)
