"Muppets Most Wanted" Hits Theaters Today!

     Now Playing "Muppets Most Wanted"

What do you get when you combine the intrigue and suspense of an action movie, a love story that has spanned the ages, with a spectacular gulag prison musical review? The “Muppets Most Wanted” of course. Earlier this week, I was treated to special preview showing of this rip rollicking adventure.  

Opening in theaters across the country today, “Muppets Most Wanted” reunites Kermit, the divine Miss Piggy, all of your Muppet favorites and introduces us to the world-renowned criminal Constaine, who bears a striking resemblance to Kermit. "Muppets Most Wanted" begins with a self-deprecating musical number, which includes the line, "Everybody knows that the sequel's never quite as good." Luckily, this statement couldn’t be further from the truth and what ensues is a Muppet movie of old, in the spirit of Jim Henson with all the madcap twists and turns that we grew up loving.
In this latest installment, the Muppets hit the road for a European tour – setting the stage for a series of international incidents along the way.
Constantine leads the Muppets (only Animal knows he's not the real Kermit) as unsuspecting accessories in a jewel heist. 

Meanwhile, our beloved Kermit is in a Russian gulag run by Tina Fey, where his show-running talents are put to the test. Ricky Gervais is the perfect Number Two as Constantine's right-hand man Dominic Badguy ("pronounced bad-gee") and 

Ty Burrell is the insufferable French detective Jean Pierre Napoleon. It wouldn’t be a Muppet movie without the help of some famous humans mingling with our felt friends. 

Keep your eyes open for Tom Hiddleston as The Great Escapo, Christoph Waltz waltzing with Muppet giant Sweetums, "Downton Abbey's" Lord Grantham (Hugh Bonneville) as a bribe-taking journalist, and Celine Dion going diva-a-diva in a duet with Miss Piggy. 

My personal favorites came from the Siberian gulag where Kermit the Frog is sent. Where else can you see Ray Liotta, Jemaine Clement, pro wrestler and major Muppet fan (and little person) Hornswoggle, and "Machete" star Danny Trejo doing the opening dance from “Chorus Line” to perfection I might add.  And be sure not to miss the cameo by Josh Groban, heard long before it seen.

Will Kermit save the day? And more importantly, will Miss Piggy finally get her frog and just what will our divine Miss Pig be wearing?
