My Thoughts:
My family is full of Muppet fans. We have been watching the Muppets since back in the days of The Muppet Show. When The Muppet Movie was released in 2011 we were so excited to see our familiar friends back on the big screen. The film was a hit in theaters and in my home... so Muppets Most Wanted was a much anticipated event for us!

This film did not disappoint. In true Muppet fashion, it is filled with big names and big faces. My husband and I sat down with our two children to enjoy the movie together...

What is so great about this movie is that it's a hit with all ages. My kids each have their favorite characters (my daughter loves Kermit and my son is a Fozzie Bear fan). They find their antics and relationships hysterical. My son walks around saying Wocka Wocka! And this time around... Constantine was a favorite as my daughter kept reminding me which was one Constantine and which one was Kermit! Some of the jokes were over their heads, but there was still tons to make them laugh.

For my husband and I, the film was very entertaining in humor, action and adventure. And we love pointing out those familiar faces and big names that keep popping up. The music is fantastic and Ricky Gervais is hysterical. I love the interactions between muppets and humans.

I would highly recommend checking out Muppets Most Wanted for your next family movie night!
