We set off to see the” Muppets Most Wanted” movie last Saturday.
The Muppet movie was fun for all ages. Many of the jokes were for adults and kept them entertained.
The musical numbers were lively and got the kids and adults wanting to dance in their seats.
Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid, Dublin 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 the Frog-and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.
The movie had a very 70s reminiscence feel to it making it feel like the original Muppet show. There was a bit of comedic violence which some parents may not enjoy but I didn’t find a problem with it. We enjoyed the movie for around two hours exactly which may be a little long for some younger kids. I brought the entire family well except for the one year old. The ages spanning from 9-16 and everyone really enjoyed it. . I really enjoyed the guest cameos, many of which went over the heads of the children.
Take the entire family to see this Movie! You will LOVE it!
Here are some fun activity sheets you can print out and enjoy.

Question and answer with the Muppet stars:
INTERVIEW WITH MISS PIGGY
- What are the Muppets up to this time?
I have no idea what the Muppets are up to, but I will tell you what moi is up to—fabulous, funny, award-worthy acting that better win me major kudos and statuettes!
In “Muppets Most Wanted,” I play the role that everyone wants to see me play—myself! And I am incredible in it as we tour the major capitals of Europe. And some minor capitals, too. If there’s an audience, I’m there!
- Can you address the rumors that you and Kermit are getting married?
Yes. We are getting married. He just doesn’t know it yet.
- Describe your duet with Celine Dion.
My dear close personal friend Celine Dion is such an amazing talent! (I predict big things for her career.) Our duet is pure magic—a mixing of two of the greatest singing voices in the history of singing and voices. You’ll adore it so much, you’ll definitely want to run out and buy the soundtrack!
- Yet again, you have a killer wardrobe with 24 different costumes. Did they meet your expectations?
Sometimes I amaze even myself! The greatest thing about my wardrobe for this movie is, of course, the fact that after we finish shooting I get to take all of the pieces home with me! Isn’t Hollywood fun!? All moi’s outfits are fantastique, but my special favorite is a glorious white gown and veil designed exclusively for moi by fashion legend Vivienne Westwood. This dress looks suspiciously like a dress that one, such as moi, could get married in.
- What makes “Muppets Most Wanted so special?”
Silly question. What else? MOI!
INTERVIEW WITH KERMIT THE FROG
- What is “Muppets Most Wanted” about?
While the Muppets are on an international tour to places like Spain, Germany and England something awful happens—to me.
Y’see, the World’s Number One criminal, Constantine, just happens to be a frog. And he looks almost exactly like me. He takes my place and I take his place—in a gulag. After that, thanks to Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, Tina Fey and a host of cool cameos—and the Muppets, of course—hilarity, intrigue and action ensue. Gee, that sounds exciting. I wonder what happens?
- What is your role in the film?
I play the role I’ve trained for my whole life. I’m Kermit the Frog. But this is me like you’ve never seen me, where you’ve never seen me before—in prison. Ulp!
- Describe your working relationship with Tina Fey.
Tina is fantastic and so funny. My only problem was that she really gets into character, and the character she plays, Nadya, is the head of the prison. I really don’t think it was necessary to leave me locked up when we finished shooting each night. But what can I say: she’s an artist.
- Will you finally tie the knot with Miss Piggy in this film?
I really can’t say. You’ll have to see the movie to find out. Or ask Miss Piggy, who will definitely tell you “yes”.
Constantine is the World’s Number One Criminal. (I wonder who votes on these things?) He also is a frog who looks almost exactly like me—and uses our Muppets world tour to cover up his nefarious criminal scheme.
Why should people see this film?
It’s got laughs, action, foolishness, nonsense and all that Muppets stuff. Plus, it’s got fantastic stars—Ricky [Gervais], Ty [Burrell] and Tina [Fey], plus all those great cameos! And, to top it off, “Muppets Most Wanted” features all-new songs by Bret McKenzie, who won an Oscar® for best song for “Man or Muppet,” which he wrote for our last movie. But most of all, you should see it because Miss Piggy is in it. And trust me: she’ll be taking attendance.
