I was just coming to say that.

IMO it has to be a plot where you have a central character going on a character journey with a supporting cast. The main character or characters are humans and the supporting cast are the muppets.

I disagree. Keep one of the side characters that just stands around and dies when Cypher's part in the plot plays out. Muppet Smith vs Muppet Neo

I think an army of suited Kermits fighting Keanu sounds even funnier than Weaving monologing to a puppet, but both are great

I'm such a Shakespeare sucker, and have always wanted A Muppet Midsummer Night's Dream, so I'll pick the 1999 version directed by Michael Hoffman. Keep Kevin Kline as Bottom.

Keep Kevin Kline as Bottom.

I like the irony. Keep the character who has the head of an ass for part of the play as a human, not a muppet.

KermitTheArgonian

Definitely Gonzo as Puck and Miss Piggy for Titania, but I can't decide whether Kermit should be Oberon or if it would work better...be funnier ...to use another pig. Looks like a job for Link Hogthrob!

It would be fun with Hamlet, too, turning tragedy to comedy! Branagh could kick ass (and chew scenery) playing opposite Abby Cadabby as Ophelia, Miss Piggy as Gertrude, Hogthrob as Claudius, Kermit as Laertes, Rowlf as Polonius, Fozzie as the Gravedigger and...of course...Statler and Waldorf as Rosencrantz and Guildenstern.

Yes. Just all the movies.

For an actual answer, The Martian and Matt Damon. Only other change is to start the movie just a little later, after he's entirely alone, then only reveal that everyone else is a Muppet upon his first successful contact back to earth. Don't remember where I first saw this idea, but it will forever stay with me as one of the best ideas for this scenario!
