Muppets Most Wanted


StoryThe Muppets take their show on the road, this time in Europe, with a tour visiting Berlin, Madrid, Dublin and London. However, Kermit is replaced by an evil impersonator called Constantine who plans to use the Muppets roadshow as a front for a heist.

Review: Almost every Muppet you might or might not have seen on TV as a kid features in this caper. The Muppets realize that they need to step up their stage act if they are to give their careers a shot in the arm and in order to do so, they must go on a tour. They are persuaded to hire a shifty character called Dominic Badguy (Gervais) who will provide his services as road manager for the group. What the furry fellows don't realize is that Dominic has his own long-term plans for the job. His first step is to get the real Kermit (Whitmire) kicked off to the Siberian gulag and install Constantine (Vogel) in Kermit's place. None of the Muppets suspect the switch, even if Constantine speaks in an accent that's decidedly more Ukraine than Utah.
Meanwhile in Siberia, Kermit's prison is presided over by a rather fetching looking warden called Nadya (Fey) who rules over the prison with the proverbial iron fist but it seems, has a soft spot for Kermit. Back on the train travelling through Europe, Constantine and Badguy go about their plan to rob the Crown Jewels. It is only Miss Piggy (Jacobson) and Animal (Jacobson again) who suspect that their leader's mannerisms have changed somewhat. Will they be able to tell the faux Kermit from the real deal? The rudderless Muppets are allowed to do what they want by Constantine even as things spiral into chaos.

There are cameos aplenty in this fun film. People as unlikely as Tom Hiddleston and Ray Liotta (both gulag inmates) to some hip names in Hip Hop (Combs) and R&B (Usher) put in appeareances. And the song sequences are both fun and wacky - two words that sum up this film.
