When Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and Fozzie Bear returned to the big screen in 2011, worldwide audiences were treated to a "movie spectacular" with humor, a heartwarming story and memorable songs found in The Muppets. The hit's new successor, though different in many ways, doesn't disappoint.

Muppets Most Wanted is hilarious and chock-full of singable songs, but has an air of intrigue to it as well. Reminiscent of The Great Muppet Caper (1981), this sequel is an action-packed Muppet crime dramedy with cameos and movie references galore.

THE MOVIE IN A MINUTE

Fresh off their success of saving their beloved L.A. studio, The Muppets pack their bags for a global tour. Hoping around Europe's most exciting cities, the gang becomes unknowingly involved in an international crime spree led by Constantine, the world's Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit, and his villainous Number Two guy.

THE GOOD AND BAD IN MUPPETS MOST WANTED

If you're a fan of The Great Muppet Caper, then you're likely ready to see the Muppets in another crime/mystery adventure. Muppets Most Wanted offers you that and more. The roles are reversed in this new film with Kermit becoming entangled in a perilous, prison situation (Miss Piggy had that honor in the ‘81 Muppet classic). 

Children and adults will enjoy the film for all its fun songs, witty dialogue, dance numbers and celebrity cameos. The theme of appreciating the ones you love rings true in Kermit and his gang's story. It teaches kids the value of friendship and ‘family".

Rated PG for some mild action, Muppets Most Wanted is good, clean entertainment for families. Parents, be advised; the action sequences and villainy may be a little much for very young children.

IN THE END

Muppets Most Wanted has a different feel to it than its predecessor. Still, it’s quite funny and makes for a good movie experience.
