Now that you've seen it, what did you think? They're back… again! Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, Animal, and even Walter. Jim Henson's Muppets return to the big screen three years after their revival in The Muppets in a sequel titled Muppets Most Wanted, once again directed by James Bobin of "Flight of the Conchords" fame. In addition to all of our Muppet friends, the cast includes Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey, Jemaine Clement, Ty Burrell, with numerous cameos as well. But is it as good as the first? Or not even close? Fun or not? If you've seen it, leave a comment with your thoughts on Muppets Most Wanted.
Note: I have not been able to see this yet, as Disney didn't screen it for me in advance. In the meantime, here's an excerpt from Jeremy's review: "The jokes have always been a little cheesy with the Muppets, but that was forgiven due to the genuine heart they always brought… This movie aims for nothing but the funny bone, and, to its credit, a jab or two get through. That and the cameos - always a fun time in Muppet movies - are more than enough to make it worthwhile for the typical kids' movie that it is. You can't help but wonder, though, where that magic and uniqueness went. They probably went home with Jason Segel."
What did you think of Bobin's Muppets Most Wanted? Improved sequel, or wasted potential?
