New Hope church’s Free Summer of Family Fun continues with another outdoor movie.
We will be showing “The Great Muppet Caper”. Free snacks and soft drinks for all!
Bring blankets and lawn chairs to enjoy the movie out doors on the big screen.
If it rains, we will move everything inside, including the giant screen.
Also, Pastor Claude will be telling us the story of “Big Billy does something bad”.
Here is a review from Plugged In.com
Ah, life is indeed a happy song when you get to the end of a Muppet movie reboot. But wait: What do all those felt-covered friends do now?
Kermit and the gang ask themselves that very question moments after their last pic ends. And it puts them in a quandary. There’s got to be some worthwhile project they can all work on together, right?
I mean, they could always …
That is, how about …
Uh, what are they going to …
That’s when a shrewd businessman named Dominic Badguy (it’s pronounced “bad ghee,” of course) gives Kermit the perfect idea: a world tour. The Muppets can take their act on the road and deliver their Muppet Magic directly to John and Jane Q. Public. Yay!
Little do those gullible puppet pals realize, however, that Dominic really is a bad ghee, er, guy. He’s a notorious villain who just happens to be the sidekick of an even notoriouser frog villain named Constantine, a dastardly amphibian mastermind who hails from Russia.
Their plan? To go down in history as the most wicked, evil, notoriousest villains there ever were. “My name first,” the Russian-accented Constantine crows. “And then, spacebar, spacebar, spacebar, your name.”
Their nefarious strategy depends upon having Constantine replace Kermit as the Muppets’ leader—a relatively easy task, since, well, they look almost exactly alike. (Constantine sports a telltale mole that Kermit does not.) True, the thick accent poses some obstacles for the imposter. (Even saying the name “Keyr-mit” is something of a challenge for him.) But he’ll work on it.
All they have to do is get Miss Piggy’s beau sent to a gulag in Siberia. A well-placed, glued-on mole will convince the authorities he’s the villain. Then their scheme of worldwide thievery can commence in earnest. It’s a perfect plan. Those Muppet fools will never suspect anything, Constantine chortles.
All right, all right. It’s true that the real Keyr-mit is kind and honest, earnest and sincere. He’s also a natural-born showman. And the great Constantine is none of those things. But that doesn’t bother the evil mastermind.
Bah! He can fake all of that.
