Go green! Kermit & Co. make a triumphant return in a ridiculously entertaining treat. The fuzzy gang -- helped by fans Gary (Jason Segel, who is also a cowriter) and his girlfriend, Mary (Amy Adams) -- reunite to stage a telethon, complete with crowd-pleasing musical numbers. ("The Rainbow Connection" still holds up!) Jack Black and other A-listers pop up to deliver self-deprecating quips, but the lovable Muppets upstage them all.
