But after seeing the movie, my son, as always, wanted the soundtrack. I agreed, I loved the songs. But we were surprised at how much longer most of the songs were - and a subsequent viewing of the movie had the shorter songs verified again. We loved some of the lines in the soundtrack songs that they cut out of the movie.
So the Blu-Ray immediately got 5 stars from us because they included the extended version of the movie, which has the songs in their entirety, just like on the soundtrack, with all the great lines they cut out of the standard movie version.
The extras aren't much of a surprise, since they had them on You Tube and such for a while now, the Rizzo's Biggest Fan and the "alternate" cut from the old hecklers that was just their couple moments in the movie as "The Whole Movie." But they did have what they called the longest blooper reel in Muppet History. And it had some good parts in there, although I think they went overboard with the Ricky Gervais laughing all the time. But it was fun to watch him cracking up when he was trying to deliver his lines, which really was a neat insight to how much fun he must have had working on this movie.
The sound is great, full surround, and the transfer was well done. It looks awesome on our big LED TV. And there are a lot of extra scenes as well that were not in the original movie.Read more ›
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: http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/08/09/amazon-takes-the-muppets-off-the-shelf/ 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.
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. ...smile...).
* 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.Read more ›

The movie was good, but lacked most of the wacky craziness of the classic Muppet movies and TV show. It needed more weirdness and a lot less of the tacked-on supervillain. Read morePublished 2 hours ago by Amazon Customer
