The Muppets (2011) Poster

(2011)

Goofs

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When they retrieve Animal from the anger management therapy and the patients start fighting each other, one of them (the tall man with short, white hair standing behind the therapist) is clearly not hitting anything, as his punch misses his opponent by at least one foot. Yet, we hear the punch and the other man falls down.

Character error 

Miss Piggy makes a minor French error when trying to order the other Muppets out of her Paris office. She says "depeche-toi", which is the phrase for making an order to a single person. To make an order to a group, she should have said "depechez-vous". Of course, Miss Piggy's French skills may not be great.

Just as Walter finishes his whistling solo, the telethon counter reads $9.9 million, but in the next shot with Kermit the Frog and Piggy, the counter clearly reads $9.8 million.

When Gary returns to the motel in his tuxedo, the top stud is missing on his shirt, and strangely, a regular button is visible. In the next shot that shows his shirt, the stud is in place.

During the "Me Party" scene, Mary sits at a table, tears a roll in half, and puts a fork through each piece before making them "dance" like legs. When she stands up a moment later, the silverware is seen lying on the table, without the pieces of roll.

When The Muppets, Gary and Mary are about to drive to France, Gary and Mary are sitting on opposite sides of the back seat, but when the car comes out of the water, they have switched places.

When Walter is practicing at the piano at the Muppet Theatre, the book moves from the left side of the piano (in the first shot) to the right side (subsequent shots).

Errors in geography 

When The Muppets plead Tex Richman to return their theatre, the establishing shot shows the Bank of America Center in Los Angeles as the headquarters for "Richman Oil". However, the same building can be repeatedly seen outside the office's windows when Richman performs his song. The scene was actually shot inside one of the towers of the nearby City National Plaza.

During the opening sequence, the USA map has Alabama labeled as "MISSISSIPPI", while Mississippi is labeled as a second "ARKANSAS". Also, Nebraska is labeled as "NEDRASKA" with a 'D'.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Scooter turns his head to the side, it can be seen that he has no actual eyes on his face, only on his glasses. This is just how this character has always been designed.

Revealing mistakes 

The edges of the injury on Richman's cheek are peeling off during the telethon scene in the theater.
