right here. And while you're at it, check out more of Jeremiah's stuff on Blue Box. The man knows his stuff when it comes to movies. But anywho, I digress. We're here to talk about a new Muppets movie! So let's begin!
Like I mentioned, The Muppets was an excellent film in terms of story. The return of the Muppets story was genius. Muppets Most Wanted tries really hard to have a fun, clever story to keep the newly found Muppets momentum, but it's fairly sub-par compared to the story of the first. After the amazing introduction, it kinda gets lost. After becoming a huge success, The Muppets get duped by Dominic Badguy (played by Ricky Gervais). He convinces them to go on a world tour. The only one really opposed to this is Kermit, but shortly after getting started, Kermit gets replaced by criminal mastermind Constatine, a Kermit look-a-like. Constatine escapes from prison, frames Kermit, and the police throw Kermit in Prison in his place, thinking he is Constatine. Meanwhile, Constatine and Dominic put into play a sinister plot during this Muppets tour.
Overall, if you are not a Muppets fan, this movie isn't going to convert you to Muppetism. Muppets are one of those things that you just have to have grown up with to enjoy. That's the case for me. I've always liked the Muppets. And thus I liked this movie. But if that is not the case for you, then I wouldn't give a strong recommendation for this movie. However, if you are a Muppets fan, than this movie is a must see. You may not walk out of the theaters with a new favorite Muppets movie. You may not even like it as much as the previous one. But you will have a lot of fun it. Why? Because it's the Muppets. And the Muppets are great. My grade for Muppets Most Wanted is an 8/10.
