This film, with its memorable music, wild humor and very brief cameos, is more like the classic Muppet movies of the 80's than any that have come out since. Bravo!

While I like Jason Segel's 2011 "The Muppets" and appreciate the effort at bringing the Muppets back, too much of the film reduced the Muppets to supporting characters with reductive personalities recreating their greatest hits. The characters needed to be reintroduced and there probably wasn't a much better way to do it, but it was not the classic Muppet mania that I grew up with. Nor are the films like Christmas Carol or Treasure Island that were both preoccupied with their human leads too. And Muppets From Space threw out original music numbers, and much of the charm, in the process of the fated 1999 film.

Muppets Most Wanted sets things right. This film serves as the fourth true contender after Jim Henson's original trilogy of The Muppet Movie, The Great Muppet Caper and The Muppets Take Manhattan. I don't understand why modern auds have trouble with humor that marries silliness with sophistication in the classic Muppet tradition like this film did. It's not perfect, but it is extraordinary. I loved this film! 4 out of 5 Stars.

PS - Too bad Amazon has decided to screw its faithful customers by holding Disney Blu-ray and DVD pre-orders hostage until the day before release[such as this one and Captain America 2] in order to increasingly extort more money from distributors: This movie and many others are available at reasonable prices from countless other online retailers like Target and Best Buy. That's where I'll be pre-ordering my new releases from now on.

Kermit has a doppelgänger. And he is dastardly! Therein lies our PG- rated story. (I think the rating is based on some subtle sexual references, but later, we couldn't recall what they were.) All that distinguishes Kermit from his nemesis Constantine, is a wart on the bad guy's upper lip. That, plus the Russian accent....

As you probably know, The Muppets can invite an astonishing number of name brand performers to one of these capers. In this one, if you recognize one familiar face, you'll see 30 more! I am in bewildered awe that so many performers (on both sides of The Pond) seem delighted to provide cameos for these fuzzy folks. I could easily name scores of actors I recognized without breaking a sweat. We have seen them in everything from "Downton Abbey" to "Machete." What fun!

Along with the familiar voices of our favorite characters, here are a few of the guest celebrities we enjoyed:
* Ty Burrell ("Modern Family") is Jean Pierre Napoleon, an Interpol agent who is determined to bring Constantine, The World's Most Dangerous Criminal to justice, so long as it's BEFORE his American counterpart!
* Ricky Gervais ("The Invention of Lying") is Domenic Badguy (pron. "Bah ghee" it's French), Constantine's evil sidekick (his "Number Two." Maybe THAT's the reason for the PG rating.
* Tina Fey ("30 Rock") Nadya makes "Siberia" rhyme with "superior." She enlists her prisoner Kermit to bring some class to her Siberian prisoners' annual musical. She LOVES Broadway!
* Christoph Waltz ("Django Unchained") as himself, dances with a Muppet. What kind of dance you may ask? Yup! A Waltz!
* Salma Hayek ("Grown Ups") as herself.

MUPPETS MOST WANTED begins immediately where THE MUPPETS ends. As Kermit and the gang are preparing to pack up and go home, they notice a camera that’s still filming and realize that must mean there’s going to be a sequel. Thus begins the first of several original songs, “We’re Doing a Sequel.” In the first stanza of the song Kermit sings, “We’re doing a sequel/That’s what we do in Hollywood/And everybody knows/The sequel’s never quite as good.” Although the MUPPETS MOST WANTED has a lot of great gags, witty one liners, a pretty decent plot, and is filled with original musical numbers, the film doesn’t quite reach the same level as THE MUPPETS. That doesn’t mean that MUPPETS MOST WANTED is a bad movie because it isn’t. It’s just that other than a couple of scenes, the film lacks the heart and magic that made THE MUPPETS such a great comeback movie.

In MUPPETS MOST WANTED, the Muppets meet with a manager to the stars, Dominic Badguy (Ricky Gervais) who convinces them they should go on an international tour to strike while the iron is hot. Unbeknownst to the Muppets, Dominic is the second-in-command to the number one criminal in the world, Constantine. Constantine is a frog who, other than a mole on his face, looks identical to Kermit. Constantine has also escaped from an international gulag in Siberia, Russia and the Muppets World Tour is all part of his plan to pull of the biggest jewel heist in history.

Like THE MUPPETS, MUPPETS MOST WANTED is full of references to past Muppets appearances. For instance, the opening number “We’re Doing a Sequel” has a closing aquatic bit that harkens back to Miss Piggy’s entrance in THE GREAT MUPPET CAPER and the plot of THE GREAT MUPPET CAPER also revolved around an international jewel thief.
