It's time to play the music. It's time to light the lights. It's time to meet the Muppets in Muppets Most Wanted tonight. Riding high on their comeback, Muppets Most Wanted picks up where “The Muppets” left off. Anxious to continue their success, the gang wants to produce a sequel but Kermit isn’t so sure. As they try to decide their next career decision, they meet Dominic Badguy (Ricky Gervais) who claims to be interested and in their talent and agrees to be their manager. Kermit once said, “it’s not easy being green” but sooner learns that it becomes harder when the green turns mean.  Through a series of events, Kermit’s identity is stolen by Constantine, the world’s most dangerous criminal frog, and Kermit is imprisoned in Russia. As Kermit struggles to escape and clear his name, Fozzi and Walter begin to suspect that something is wrong and the quest to find their friend begins. Will they find Kermit and restore things back to normal? Will Constantine’s plans be foiled, and will Kermit finally marry Miss Piggy? All these questions and more are answered in this action-packed comedy that will have you holding your sides with laughter and leave you wanting more Muppet mayhem.

While I am usually wary of sequels, the Muppets have a well-proven track record when it comes to successful stories and comical skits and Muppets Most Wanted continues this tradition faithfully. It was wonderful to see some of the original Muppet characters return such as Sam Eagle and Annie Sue as well as the return of Walter from the first film. The cast of supporting celebrity stars added to the playful antics of the Muppets and felt nostalgic in some instances, reminding me (and many audiences) of the original Muppet show celebrity guest appearances. While I was initially disappointed that both Amy Adams and Jason Siegel didn’t reprise their roles, the celebrities assembled for this sequel made up for the absence. The plot, while some would argue was predictable, was witty, charming, and even surprising, taking a few turns even I wasn’t expecting.  So what’s next for Kermit and his friends?  Well, only time will tell. For now, Mickey Mouse Movie House gives this side-splitting sequel an A+. See you next time at the movies. Wokka wokka!
