Statler & Waldorf From the BalconyPlay this trailer

The elderly curmudgeons from TV's "The Muppet Show" turn their attention and tongues to motion pictures with bi-weekly review videos at Movies.com. Their series is reminiscent of Roger Ebert and Richard Roeper's clips and critics approach, plus there's a new wrinkle with the integration of Balconisms, daffy definitions for moviegoers. Statler & Waldorf employ their trademark grumpy humor and Muppet friends, including Rowlf the Dog and Pepe the King Prawn, for guest commentaries, much felt.

Review:

Reviewing the reviewers, the sketches are predictable and a bit safe, but the hosts' crotchety camaraderie is enjoyable. Perhaps, Statler & Waldorf will find their teeth in future episodes. Meanwhile, there are no "thumbs up" summaries offered. Instead, the gents rate the movies on their "Snooze-O-Meter," providing wise probability predictions of our falling asleep during the flicks.
