How refreshing. “Muppets Most Wanted” is real entertainment for all ages. It helps to have been around to understand the older movies that are mimicked in the movie, because it leaves the youngsters wondering why that imagery is so funny to the grownups.
“Muppets Most Wanted” is a feel good movie. That is why we go. Great songs and a happy ending is always a plus. We feel comfortable with the Muppets since they have been part of our lives for decades. We grew up with the original Muppet shows, TV specials and every Muppet movie made.
“Muppets Most Wanted” is moving quickly up in rank at the box office. Even after watching this stellar group for over 20 years, educate us and take over cities without moving their feet, I believe this one may prove to be a favorite.
The movie is about a crime adventure that takes the Muppet gang on a frolic around the world. This is a good geography lesson. The problem is that there is an International crime lord, Constantine, who looks just like Kermit. The excitement unfolds while trying to prove the real crime lord Kermit.
Tina Fey plays Nadya, a prison guard and Ty Burrell plays Jean Pierre Napoleon, an Interpol agent and Ricky Gerval plays Dominic, Constantine’s sidekick also known as Number Two.
