The Muppets are back!
Though the Muppets came out with a movie in 2011, I can honestly say that the last time I have watched anything Muppets was probably around 1981. So, when I was given the opportunity to attend the screening of Muppets Most Wanted with my children I jumped on it. I immediately began to school them on all of my favorite characters and we had a blast looking through the thousands of videos available on YouTube.
“This film takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine-the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit-and his dastardly sidekick Dominic.”
What a complete joy it was for me to enjoy the same cast of characters today, with my kids, that I enjoyed so may years ago as a child. The characters are just as lovable and endearing and once again the Muppets have produced some great songs. I was completely floored with the number of superstars that were popping up in scene after scene…cameos everywhere……Selena Gomez, Celene Dion, Usher, and of course my daughter noticed Ross Lynch :) ….just to name a few. Ray Liotta has a small part and I adore him. The movie is packed with all-stars which I found surprising for a children’s movie.
I’m not going to lie to you. I don’t take my kids to the movies a lot because I can’t tolerate sitting through a children’s movie. But Muppets Most Wanted is really a movie we all enjoyed, and, maybe I’m hormonal or something, but, I even got a little choked up towards the end. :) We loved it and only wish my favorite, Beaker, had more screen time!
Muppets Most Wanted in theaters Friday!
Who’s your favorite Muppet?! :)
