Quote: I’d marry you for your money in a minute.
Has anyone ever tried to put you in a box? You should be speaking like this, you should be dressing like that, do this, don’t do that. It’s totally ridiculous, right? Well in case you didn’t know… it’s only gotten better. It used to be WAY worse.
2011. 103 Minutes. Rated PG.
“If I’m a Muppet, then I’m a very manly Muppet.”
I don’t know about you, but I grew up watching The Muppet Show on Sunday nights. Pretty much everyone who was anyone guest-starred on the program, from Bob Hope and Carol Burnett to Debbie Harry and Steve Martin (side note: no guest star was ever on the show twice, although John Denver made it into more than one “special”). Everyone had a favorite character, be it Kermit or Rowlf or Janice or Scooter or Miss Piggy or Animal or the Swedish Chef. There was always music and silly comedy sketches, like the infamous “Mahna Mahna” song, and the unforgettable commentary from Statler and Waldorf.
