Frank Oz Bashes The Latest Muppet Movie…And Asks If Chick-Fil-A Is Good

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooFilm FlickersThe MuppetsJason Segel

We knew Frank Oz didn't have much love for the revitalized version of The Muppets, but the more he talks about it, the more it sounds like he HATES it.

While being interviewed on the red carpet at the 38th annual Saturn Awards, where he was honored for his work in showbiz, the co-creator of The Muppets offered more criticism of the most recent movie.

Before the update even hit theaters, he said he "wasn’t happy with the script." When asked if he enjoyed Jason Segel's reboot, the original voice of Fozzie Bear said:

"I am glad others enjoyed it. I thought the script wasn’t forward enough. I thought it was going backwards. And, I thought it was too sweet. Because the Muppets are not sweet. They shouldn’t be cute. It was a little bit too smarmy and cute for me. The Muppets always hated cuteness … If it’s really cute, that’s great — purely. But, if it gets pejoratively cute, I’m not crazy about it. I thought the movie was just a bit too sweet.”

That's his opinion and he's A LOT closer to it than any of us, so we can sort of understand where he's coming from. We may not agree at all, but at least he's honest.

He continued to be honest when asked about the controversy surrounding Chick-Fil-A and the Jim Henson Company's decision to part ways with the conservative fast food chain. After saying he had only "heard something about it," the guy who voiced all of Yoda's Jedi wisdom continued:

“It’s a business decision by Disney. If that’s the case, it’s not a Muppets decision — it’s a Disney decision. So, I know nothing about it … Is it good, Chick-fil-A?”

No.

    Re: damedelamour – It's a shame that you won't eat there again, because you're denying yourself something you love over one man's opinion. What was said was said by the company's CEO, but it's not company policy. It's his personal belief. This is what's wrong with people like you, and there are WAY too many of you: You get fed propaganda by the militant gays, and you believe what you're told without researching it yourself. One man was asked his opinion. At no time did he state that it was Chick-fil-A policy. So it's not "their" views. Get the facts before you decide to be an ignorant sheep and follow along with the trendy bullies. I'm going to Chick-fil-A today and having a delicious meal because the Perez Hilton's of this world lie and bully when they don't get their way. Don't be a hater too, and learn to think for yourself.

    The interviewer misinformed Frank Oz.

    It was NOT a business decision by Disney.

    The Chick-Fil-A situation has NOTHING to do with Disney.

    It was The Jim Henson Company that cut ties with Chick-Fil-A.
    The Muppets and Disney have nothing to do with it.
