"Green With Envy"? Yep, that's the fake title given the trailer for "The Muppets" but how many other movies are there coming out this year starring Jason Segel, Amy Adams and a bunch of felt covered co-stars? The answer is none.

Once the whole gag of the film being a typical rom-com is dispensed with, this teaser for the upcoming, cameo-laden "The Muppets" delivers the goods which is lots of puppets and what looks to be some huge song-and-dance numbers. You know what? This looks like it could be some good fun. Written by Segel and longtime collaborator Nicholas Stoller, Segel is joined by Adams, Rashida Jones and Chris Cooper with cameos from pretty much everyone you can imagine, including Emily Blunt, Ricky Gervais, Alan Arkin, Jack Black, Billy Crystal, Zach Galifianakis, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dave Grohl and more. On top of that, “Flight of the Conchords” star Bret McKenzie is writing songs for the film, which isn’t too surprising considering director James Bobin, also helmed episodes of the show. The plot will center around The Muppets reuniting for The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever to save their old theater from a greedy oilman who plans to turn it into an oil rig.

Big and colorful, this looks like it's nailed the spirit of The Muppets dead center. The film opens on November 23rd, check out the full trailer below.

    Amy Adams is such a huge miscast as the hard-as-nails Lois Lane, but that movie will be a debacle anyway, so who cares. Hopefully it doesn't damage her career too much.

    As a huge fan of the Muppet show, I am more excited about this than I can say.

    Amy Adams is amazing. I can wait to see her as a cougar Lois Lane in Man of Steel.
