Up to 11 reviews and still 100% fresh!
My oldest sister is taking her daughter (who we've forged into a new Muppet fan who adores Beaker) on Black Friday. I'm hoping I can go too.
I'm going to start avoiding this thread because I don't want to spoil anything, but I'm hoping this movie will make me laugh and cry.
Aah, so glad to hear about the positive reviews. I'm super super psyched to go see it.
IGN loves it:
I just can't get over the reviews for this. It's sitting at a 100% Fresh rating on RT, with an 8.5/10 average grade by the critics. On Rotten-freaking-Tomatoes. There's pretty much one part in the whole damn movie I've read that's kinda bad, but even that doesn't seem awful so much as corny (and are we really going to complain about corny?) I'm getting petrified that all this positive hype over the film may actually leave me disappointed in the end.
But probably not.
And none of my friends can come with me on opening night. None. Seriously? The movie at the very top of my huge 'to-see' list this year, and no one can go with me on Wednesday? Fffffffff...
I'm going to have to check in with some co-workers, I remember a few of them having interest in seeing it. If not, I'm going solo.
I know the movie isn't out just yet, but if anyone knows and can, find out if there is anything after the credits. I want to make sure if I should stay after.
Amazon is currently having a sale on the Muppets soundtrack. Not sure if its a cyber monday or a black friday or a week of release thing, but you can download it for 5 bucks or get the actual cd for 7. I just looked the other day and it was going for about twice that.
The Green Album was kind of weak and misguided, but this looks to be way better. Though obviously its a little spoilery for the actual movie...
I'm planning to stay to the end Insider, I'll fill you in. ^^
EDIT: 20 REVIEWS IN AT ROTTEN TOMATOES. STILL 100% FRESH.

Make that 27 and still 100% fresh!
28! So it looks like people are pretty much agreed its great then. Nice.
Arthur Christmas is also doing really well, its at 95% right now with 38 reviews.
A fantastic review from Aintitcool that talks about cynicsm and how muppets make it all better. I especially like this bit.
http://www.aintitcool.com/node/52033Miss Piggy loves her frog, even through difficult times, and it's telling that the generation that got used to the idea of these two in love has been the most accepting of other people's lifestyles. Love is what it is, and the Muppets know that better than anybody.
And an interview with the director (spoiler alert)

Armond White . . . he's that ass who gave Toy Story 3 a thumbs down, wasn't he? Feh.
And we're up to 30!
But in the spirit of the muppets being not-cynical and upbeat, I'm going to let that inevitability go.
So who is actually seeing this at midnight, or tomorrow? I don't think I'll get to it before Saturday.
Definitely Friday. From what I'm hearing, my chances of seeing this on Friday is practically sealed. I'm so glad my family wants to see this just as badly as I do...except my father. He's bitching that we're dragging his ass over to watch it. He's reluctant, but I know deep inside, he'll enjoy the movie. I know him.
I'm just happy that I'm going to watch it with my niece. She used to be afraid of the Muppets namely due to the fact that she was once afraid of majority of Sesame Street characters (it started with a fear of the "Yepyepyepyep" aliens, and then it turned to a fear of Cookie Monster). Now? Kid loves all these guys. Namely Beaker.
I know Muppets aren't Christmas related, but all this fun is putting my in the Christmas spirit. ^_^
43 reviews and still 100%! DAYUM!

So. I've listened to the soundtrack now. I had planned to hold off till after seeing the movie, I was just buying it while it was priced low. But... it was sitting there. And I couldn't help myself. Its a bit spoilery (a couple fairly big gags seem to be given away) but wow.
This is just going to be something else. I might need to find a way to see it before Saturday.
49 REVIEWS AND STILL 100%!
This is better than I'd ever hoped for. If this keeps up, we may have a new entry on RT's Top 100 Rated Movies list! Hell, we may actually get ourselves a new Muppet Show (or at least a few specials each year)!
Tomorrow, a year's worth of waiting comes to an end. 8D
With my work schedule I can't make any midnight showings. I hope to see it Friday or Saturday.
Oh, I would LOVE to have a new Muppet Show. Think of all the fresh celebs that could go on it. Hell, the first episode could open with Lady Gaga, she'd be PERFECT for it.
Muppets Tonight was alright, but they got a few key things wrong. A. They replaced Kermit as host. Clifford wasn't bad, but you can't have the show without Kermit hosting. If their roles as producer/host had been switched it would have been a lot better. B. Not nearly enough of the old favorites. New muppets are good, but there wasn't nearly enough Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, etc. C. The late night show theme ala Letterman didn't really fit. Muppets are Variety Show, not Late-Night.
