MUPPETS MOST WANTED (Theatrical Release USA 2014)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.6|5.0 Stars ììì

The Muppets: Most Wanted—usual, nothing new here and not better than the last Muppets' moviedoes not meet the high quality standards expected of the Muppets. The storyline is somewhat intriguing and comical; but audiences may find themselves desiring another movie watch over this one. This film somehow misses both the necessary entertainment and excitement factors expected from major studio productions. Muppets have a tendency to pound home an obvious moral and they follow that same protocol in this story: friends are forever and should not be forgotten.


In this story an evil mastermind, who looks just like Kermit the Frog, breaks prison. This frog, named Constantine (voice of Matt Vogol), has a black mole on his upper lip and a strong accent; but he hides the black mole with green makeup, lowers his voice to sound like Kermit, and takes over the Muppets with the help of Dominic Badguy (Ricky Gervais). Kermit (voice of Steve Whitmire) needs to rise to the occasion and, of course, he does.
