Movie Trailer Analysis: The Muppets

Watch it here

Target audience:

It’s definitely a family movie and my guess is: if you hate musicals, you probably won’t enjoy this one.


It’s light and playful, but it’s normal because it’s a musical!


The trailer wants to pull a joke on us, but it falls flat. If that’s what to be expected of the human scenes, I’ll be bored out my mind. I do get the fact that they’re trying to make it look like a regular romantic comedy, but it’s still the same movie. Hopefully it will blow our minds. After all, the director did Flight of the Conchords.

Other than that, the trailer says nothing about the story at all. Yes you see Muppets, but they’re not even funny.

How come they can make great viral videos but a boring movie teaser? I don’t get it
