5.0 out of 5 stars You CAN judge a book/dvd by it's cover,
This review is from: The Muppets [DVD] (DVD)
**WARNING - SPOILERS**
The story revolves around a young man, Walter, who suffers from a rare congenital disease meaning that his growth is stunted, his skin has the texture of fuzzy felt and he is unable to blink, yet he is blissfully unaware that anything is wrong with him because of the constant denial by his family and in particular his coldhearted brother.
That is until one day while watching TV he realises that he is not alone, that there was in fact another group of people with the same condition, a group of circus freaks known as the "muppets" who used to stage a live TV show in the 70s.
When his brother offers to take him to see the studios he is overjoyed but when they get there they find that it has been unused and neglected for many years which has clearly had a major impact on the immediate neighbourhood and property prices in the area. While they are there Walter overhears a rich investor talking about how he plans to buy the decrepit plot and develop it for it's geological wealth, something which would undoubtably bring much needed jobs to the area.
After suffering a kind of schizophrenic mental breakdown, Walter goes on a quest with the help of "Karmit the frog" to reunite the Muppets and stop the investor from buying the studios.
From the outset it becomes clear that as well as being freaky to look at, the muppets are also mentally damaged individuals who are prone to unpredictable acts of violence and destruction. Nowhere is this better illustrated than the scene where they convince "Ganzo" to join them; although he has somehow managed to become the CEO of a major plumbing business employing hundreds of people, at a moments notice he detonates a bomb which destroys his entire factory killing all of the employees in the process and presumably leaving their widows and orphans without a means of income.
When their attempt at a comeback - which includes kidnapping a famous celebrity and torturing him on live TV - fails miserably to raise the necessary funds, they finally get their way by subjecting the rich investor to a head injury and possible brain damage.
In conclusion, even though watching "The Muppets" is often an upsetting experience, an important lesson can be learned, that despite what some people will tell you, you CAN judge a book by it's cover.

"..Margaret listened to the sound of her husband Arthur mowing the lawn as she lay incapacitated on the bed, the dodgy seafood still playing merry hell with her digestive system. Suddenly there was a loud bang and a crunch from the garden and the sound of the lawnmower stopped abruptly, she would have got up to see what had happened but the room was still spinning and she daren't risk it. What seemed like a few minutes later, the lawnmower started up again as if nothing had happened. It was only several months later that Arthur finally explained the reasons for the cat's disappearance.."
