Kermit and his friends are approached by Dominic Badguy to go on a world tour. But this is all part of the sinister plan of Constantine, the world's most evil frog, to become the greatest thief of all time.

After making sure that Kermit is jailed, Constantine impersonates him as cover for his scheme.

While Sam the Eagle and Inspector Napoleon investigate, the Muppets find that Kermit has changed.

Only when Walter, Fozzie and Animal realise the truth, is there a chance to prevent Constantine from pulling off the crime of the century......

Muppets Most Wanted is a delightful movie from beginning to end, harking right back to the original TV series that started it all, and the musical numbers are much better this time, than the 2011 reboot.

Songs like The Big House, are toe tapping wonders of genius, and I've not laughed out loud at a film for a long time.

Gervais is good as the main erm, Badguy, and he handles somebody else's material really well, even though he does manage to get in his David Brent dance into the movie.

Fey is also good, her accent intentionally dodgy, and the scenes in the prison are some of the funniest the film has to offer,thanks to Clement, Trejo, and Liotta.

It's not big on narrative, but it does have a sound story, and some Muppet's get a little sidelined in this, Gonzo having really little screen time.

All in all, it's The Muppets, and if your a fan, you will find something here to enjoy, its a proper family film, and one that's worth seeing you.

Great cameos too...

Another Muppet film, so you know what to expect. Corny jokes, song and dance, and spoofs of otherr films. In this film Constantine utilizes a Mission Impossible escape and replaces Kermit with the goal of doing "Pink Panther" type of crimes.

Where else are you going to see Danny Trejo and Ray Liotta perform a song and dance in their long johns? Tina Fey looked like she was having fun in her role as a prison warden. Of course they are Muppets so there are tons of cameo roles for established stars.

Good popcorn fun.

Since a child, I share fond memories of the Muppets. I enjoy watching the Muppets as a 35 years old. The Muppets: Most Wanted is an entertaining and feel good movie. I am a huge fan of the Muppets..The Muppet Movie 1979 and Muppets Manhattan are few of my favourite films in the series. I still enjoyed the new release.

The plot is about an evil frog known as Clonstantine. He replaces Kermit with the intention of framing the Muppets through a series of crimes. Ricky Gervais plays a key role. I will not comment on the significance of his role, as it would act as a spoiler. I tend not to add spoilers in my reviews. The innocent Kermit ends up in a Siberian prison in place of the evil frog. Poor Kermit misses out on an European tour of the Muppets, as it not the same without his presence. Kermit hilariously entetains prision inmates and is chased by a mad Russian prison guard. Do the vulnerable muppets realise that Kermit is a fake? Will Kermit clear his name? There are plenty of laughs and musicals. The musicals are cheesy and catchy. The personality of the muppets steal the show. The Muppets are known for creating chaos and show their own distinctive personality. The original muppets are featured such as Gonzo, Frozzie, Rolf, Animal, Scooter, Miss Piggy and so on. The nostalgic days are relieved through the musical shows. It feels good watching these moments.

Muppets: Most Wanted is great family entertainment film. Disney has added a new dimension to the franchise, since acquiring the exclusive rights. It is a popcorn film to enjoy. I would recommend the movie, if you are a fan of the muppets and love a good feel good movie. Great nostalgic memories. Thanks for bringing the muppets to the present day.

Constantine, the world's most dangerous criminal mastermind and who also happens to look exactly like Kermit The Frog has escaped and plans to commit a series of robberies framing The Muppets while the real Kermit ends up taking Constantine's place in a Siberian prison. Opening up with the fun song We're doing a sequel and as Gonzo points out Disney wants a franchise till Tom Hanks does Toy Story 4, the film pokes fun at sequels in general. Good performances from Tina Fey as the head of the Siberian prison and Ty Burrell as a bungling Interpol agent while Ricky Gervais gives a decent performance for once not doing another David Brent impression as Constantine's right hand man, Dominic Badguy (It's French) along with the usual celebrity cameos. While not as good as The Muppet's fantastic comeback it's still amusing and still one of the better Muppet movies.

I'm sorry, but I really enjoyed this.

The film may be flawed, but I thought it was a worthy sequel to the reboot of the franchise 'The Muppets'.

I have heard some people complaining about the quality of the songs, but I thought they did exactly what they had to do. They were catchy, but not unnecessary. And I actually thought the musical numbers were the strongest part. Ty Burrell' s song, and also 'Constantine' and 'Gervais' song were strong also. I liked them all.

Will this win any awards for best story. No. But it is fun nonetheless, as it will point out the flaws in the story. And will also make you laugh. Which it did. This may be a family film, but it made me laugh quite a few times.

Having worked two children's films over the weekend it can be safely said that this is a much stronger film than 'Rio 2'. However I am sure that film will attract a wider audience, although I personally believe children will have a better time with this movie.

It's more interesting. Action-packed. And pure fun entertainment.

It's true that it drags in places, but as a whole this is a strong 'Muppets' entry.
