Muppets Most Wanted

Back in the 80’s, Miss Piggy won my three-year-old heart.  Perhaps it was her assertive personality? Evidence of this moderate obsession still lives on in my home where nostalgic Muppet memorabilia can be found in the most unsuspected places.  Watching The Muppet Show was always a family affair and I couldn’t wait to officially introduce my kiddos to my beloved childhood favorites at a screening of Muppets Most Wanted.

Muppets Most Wanted tells the tale of Kermit and Co.’s journey to their next world tour, led by their new agent Dominic Badguy (note the French pronunciation Bad-gee), played by Ricky Gervais.  Badguy leads the Muppets into a train-bound tour, but unbeknownst to them he’s actually an international thief –  in cahoots with the world’s number one world criminal, Constantine, a Kermit imposter with a thick Russian accent.


While Constantine manages to pull off a switch-a-roo, another adventure continues in a Siberian Gulag prison.  The inmates (including the real Kermit!) are under the orders of memorable warden, Nadya, played by the hilarious Tina Fey.  Interpol even gets involved as Inspector Napoleon (Ty Burrell) and Sam the Eagle are on the heels of the true criminals.

With a bunch of celebrity cameos, including Salma Hayek, Lady Gaga, Usher, Celine Dion and more  – the fast paced adventure keeps viewers on their toes as they master the art of keeping the furry folks and the real folks on even keel in that magical Muppet way.

My family received movie tickets to the screening. Opinions, as always, are my own.  In full disclosure: I may possible be Miss Piggy’s biggest fan.
