I was given free tickets for a pre-screening of this movie, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Just hearing the word Muppets brings back so many memories of when I was a kid. They are goofy characters that just make you smile and you always wonder what they are going to be up to next.
The newest Muppet movie “Muppets Most Wanted” really delivers on the comedy and antics that we have all grown to love.

Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid, Dublin and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon. Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” is directed by James Bobin and produced by David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman. Bobin wrote the screenplay with Nicholas Stoller, who is also executive producer with John G. Scotti. Featuring music from Academy Award®-winning songwriter Bret McKenzie, “Muppets Most Wanted” hits the big screen March 21, 2014.
The star studded cameos in this movie are awesome. They seem to pop up at just the right moments to get you laughing. It is funny to see who all they will get to be in the movie. I will say that my daughter (4) was a little scared just because the movie has a slightly sinister feel to it. The comedy and humor definitely play out better for adults. I was laughing plenty, but my kids didn’t really get it.
Like most Muppet movies, you will laugh and wonder what silly things they will do to get themselves in trouble next. And of course you will see all your favorite characters….and maybe just maybe Miss Piggy and Kermit will finally get married 🙂
In theaters now!!!
