I’ve already shared the fact that Manhattan is my favorite movie of all time, and I never tire of making reference to it. You may also recall that I love the Muppets. Have you wondered what happens when you combine these two wonders of American culture?
It’s kind of disturbing how well that works, isn’t it? I’m not sure this subject matter is something I’m entirely comfortable hearing Piggy and Kermie discussing, but hey…we all have to grow up sometime!
If for some tragic reason you’ve never seen Manhattan, you can watch the original scene here. And then you really need to cancel whatever plans you had for later tonight and just watch the entire movie. Trust me.
This post was wholly inspired by my friend Mari. Go over to her blog to see the very same scene from The Muppets Take Manhattan overdubbed with the classic “tipping scene” dialog from Reservoir Dogs. Brilliant!
