The video plea from Kermit and Jason Segel that got Amy Adams onboard The Muppets

I saw “The Muppets” yesterday, and while my review is embargoed until the weekend I must say what a pleasant surprise it is – it’s a real love letter to Henson (and, in some respects, Paul Williams, Frank Oz, Los Angeles and old school family values preachers). I loved it.

One of the best things about the film is Amy Adams, playing the love interest to Jason Segel. I look forward to chatting with Amy about the pic, but for the meantime you can watch the video that Segel and Kermit the Frog recorded in an effort to get the “Enchanted” actress to join their film.

“The Muppets” is out this week in the U.S, and January in Australia.
