I declare this the most metafictional movie of all time.
There’s a subtext to the whole film, a couple of them, really. It’s a love letter to the original Muppet Show and Muppet Movie, but with that was a statement: We may not get to do this again, and if this is a last hurrah, well, thanks guys, and we love you. Made me cry on the drive home.
