Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Muppets is as kid-friendly (and fun for adults) as all of the popular Jim Henson characters' early movies. Families familiar with the Muppet gang will know to expect a romantic subplot from Kermit and Miss Piggy, some slapstick stunts/humor courtesy of Gonzo, and silly jokes thanks to Fozzie the Bear. There's also one scene with a fist fight/brawl, some romance between human characters Gary and Mary, the words "butt" and "idiot," and some mild insults aimed at the Muppets. Expect a few noticeable product placements and tons of celebrity cameos.

Sexual Content

As always, Kermit and Piggy have a complicated romantic relationship. Gary and Mary hold hands, embrace, and kiss sweetly in one quick scene. Brief Muppet kissing.

Violence

A big brawl breaks out in Animal's anger management class, with several tackles/punches thrown. Miss Piggy leads a stealth team of Muppets to kidnap Jack Black and keep him "hostage" in order to host the telethon. Gonzo engages in some death-defying stunts, and there are slapstick gags (including loud explosions) throughout the movie. The villain's henchmen are a little bit threatening; one looks pretty monstrous, and they both wield potential weapons at one point. A spoofy reality show within the movie is called Punch Teacher.

Language

The words "butt," "idiot," and "oh God" are used a couple of times, and some swine humor is directed at Miss Piggy and another performing pig. Fozzie has "fart shoes."

Social Behavior

The characters' hard work on their big show provides positive messages about collaboration, teamwork, encouragement, and being proud of doing your best, no matter what happens in the end. The Muppets also have really strong friendships, and Walter and Gary are good examples of siblings who work together instead of tear each other down.

Consumerism

Red Bull is displayed prominently in one scene, and a large poster for Cars 2 (also released by Disney) shows up more than once. Kermit drives around in a Rolls Royce chauffeured by an '80s robot. The robot tries to serve guests sodas from that decade, like Tab and New Coke. Miss Piggy works at Vogue in Paris. The Muppets have strong merchandising ties to toys, apparel, accessories, home decor, and -- of course -- their own programs and movies on DVD.
