And at right about the 6-minute mark of the movie, without knowing it, the spunky opinions went in decidedly different directions, and when the movie ended we took full advantage of the “biggest bar night of the year” and threw back a few pints and argued some of the finer points of why some of us loved it, and another one of us hated it.
The writing staff at spunkybean has had November 23rd marked on our calendars for months now. We simply couldn’t wait for The Muppets to open and for our childhood friends to make their triumphant return to the big screen. So on Wednesday night when the work day was through, we locked our elbows and went skipping down the sidewalk to our local movie house, bought big popcorns and pops, and plunked down in our seat ready to be dazzled. Yes, we spent the “biggest bar night of the year” watching singing Muppets.
