Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie and the gang are back for another crazy adventure. This time they are back battling an evil jewel thief who looks a lot like Kermit. The Muppets got a reboot in 2011 and in Muppets Most Wanted we get to see them star alongside Tina Fey and Ricky Gervaise.
The reviews for Muppets Most Wanted are mixed as you can see below but the film was just released out on Netflix and Redbox and you can now watch it on your computer.
After successfully juggling several different storylines, the predictable ending is a bit of a thud. Maybe we’ve been spoiled by “The Lego Movie,” but there’s no surprising emotional wallop in “Muppets Most Wanted.” There are also far too few scenes involving the Swedish Chef, and not enough of Beaker either.
Muppets Most Wanted might have ended up as a worthy successor to The Muppets. Sadly, here he’s stuck in self-conscious gurning mode. As, it must be said, is the film itself. A wasted opportunity.
Before anyone huffs and puffs about sullying the good name of the Muppets, remember how these are gypsy showfolk singing for their supper, and are in no way above a little hucksterism to make a dollar. It’s that no foolin’ attitude, along with all the feel-good togetherness and personal growth and learning about the number 3, that makes the Muppets, and this movie, so special
