I had the good fortune to attend a press screening of Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” with my two kiddos who are 6 and 9 in order to facilitate our review of Muppets Most Wanted.
Muppets Most Wanted Review: A Great Family Film
“Muppets Most Wanted”, rated PG, hit the big screen on March 21, 2014. The movie follows the entire Muppets gang on a global tour led by a new promoter called, Dominic Badguy (he explains that is is pronounced “Badgee” because it’s French.) Dominic is portrayed by Ricky Gervais and he does a brilliant job of it! While Kermit tries to manage the Muppet acts and start small, Dominic seems to provide instant success by selling out some of Europe’s most grand theaters and letting the Muppets get what they want. Kermit finds himself losing popularity with the Muppets and when he is replaced by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit the Frog. None of the Muppets (except Animal) seem to notice that Kermit has been replaced since they are busy with their success. The Muppets find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper.
I found the Muppets Most Wanted to be a great family film. It captured the interests of my children and left them laughing while entertaining me with fun cameos from the likes of Celine Dione, Selma Hayek, and Sean Combs along with great acting from Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon,Tina Fey as Nadya a lovable but tough prison guard, and Ricky Gervais as Dominic Badguy. There were also some funny scenes with Ray Liotta, Danny Trejo and Jemaine Clements doing the unexpected. All in all, I’d say this film was a total success and major crowd pleaser with a funny plot and great lines.
