LAS VEGAS (AP) - Reviewers have praised "The Muppets Movie" that opened Wednesday as a comical family flick, but for Reno residents, the joke is on them.

The Las Vegas Sun reports that the latest Muppets movie pokes fun of the Biggest Little City in the World several times.

Early in the movie, Fozzie Bear is shown performing a song at a casino in Reno on the edge of town in a Muppets tribute act called the Moopets. The lyrics claim couples don't need a marriage certificate to get married in Reno.

Fozzie's dressing room is located in an alley behind the casino, where gunfire can be heard.

After Fozzie is reunited with his fellow Muppets, he laments the idea that he might have to return to Reno.

Reno is Nevada's third-largest city.
