Ten Movies That Would Be Better With Muppets

For the past several months, Disney has saturated the public with a series of ads for their upcoming release, The Muppets. In these ads, the beloved gang has spoofed one new release after another, ranging from The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo to Paranormal Activity 3 to Green Lantern and everything else in between. These ads have been a blast every step of the way, energizing the younger generations while also filling the older generations with nostalgia. With The Muppets just a few short weeks away, it’s left me to wonder–what other movies would be better with Muppets?

The Bucket List, starring Statler and Waldorf

The Hangover, starring Sweetums

The Pianist, starring Rowlf the Dog

Pride and Prejudice, starring Animal

The Nutty Professor, starring Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker

Grizzly Man, starring Fozzy Bear

Showgirls, starring Miss Piggy

The Right Stuff, starring the crew of the Swinetrek

The Seventh Seal, starring the Swedish Chef

The Patriot, starring Sam the Eagle

    My suggestions: “12 Angry Men” and “On the Waterfront.”

    Great list, for sure, John.
