Muppets Most Wanted is a sequel to The Muppets and it starts out with a big musical number that sets the tone for the entire movie. It begins right where the first film left off. The plot is simple and fun. The world’s most dangerous frog Constantine escapes the gulag (jail) in Siberia and takes over Kermit’s life. Meanwhile Kermit ends up in Constantine’s place in the gulag with some famous faces you’ll recognize and with the fabulous Tina Fey as the head Russian guard. Back with the Muppets Ricky Gervais aka Dominic BadGuy has convinced them to go on a World Tour. Which masks his and Constantine’s evil plans in an international crime caper across Europe.
As usual Muppets Most Wanted is filled with cameo upon cameo. Sometimes they are so quick that if you blink you’d miss them, but a few help out our Muppets along the way. Celine Dion helps Miss Piggy in a heartbreaking number. Which leads to the biggest part of the film. Miss Piggy in a wedding dress!!! Will she or won’t she ensues. Does she marry Constantine? Will Kermit break out of the Russian prison and save everyone in time? Do the Muppets realize Kermit is gone? Will Dominic and Constantine’s evil plans go through? Head out to theaters this weekend with the family and find out!
Bottom line, you will laugh, get some great songs stuck in your head, and feel the love. Muppets Most Wanted continues to stand up next to all the other great Muppet films and will instantly become a classic. I already own the soundtrack! I predict another Oscar next year for best song!
