Movie Review: Muppets Most Wanted

Play

Nostalgia notwithstanding, let’s face it: The Muppets are, and always have been, awesome. The best stuff that ever came out of the Henson camp was always the shows/films that knew how to appeal to both children and adults in equal measure. Certainly the return of the felted friends to the big screen in 2011 with “The Muppets” film largely seemed to please most demographics.

But what now? Jason Segel and Amy Adams have left and a brand new set of humans (Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, amongst others) is interacting with Kermit and the gang. Will it be the same? Will it compete with the original? Or the ORIGINAL original? Or the sequel original original?

Our team of highly trained, highly unusual suspects are here to crack the case. Join Martin, Brian, Beau and Ashley as they investigate the latest muppet madcappery.
