The Muppets: Most Wanted Movie and Soundtrack Review


They're doing a sequel! They're back by popular demand! The Muppets are back again in a silly, fun filled adventure. Starting right when the previous Muppet movie ended, the Muppet cast launch into song about how they are doing a sequel and what the plot should be. The entire Muppets gang ends up going on a world tour. Along the way, Kermit gets kidnapped and switched with Constantine, the World's Number One Criminal, and Kermit-look-alike. While Kermit has it figure out how to escape jail, the gang unwittingly wind up as part of Constantine's crime scheme.

The Muppets: Most Wanted wasn't as good as the previous film (they poked fun at this in their opening song), but was still very entertaining and worth going to see in theatre. It was laugh-out-loud funny, with tonnes of cameos from famous people, and the songs are just as good.  

The soundtrack is worth getting. It contains 20 songs with 5 demo and outtake tracks performed by Bret McKenzie. All the songs are awesome and so catchy.

Disney posted a version of I'll Get You What You Want song that is sung by Constantine in the movie.  Bret McKenzie sings this version. It's so funny and catchy and like most of the songs, I've got it stuck in my head! It's my favourite song in the soundtrack, followed closely by Something So Right. I've been singing these two songs so much that I've forgotten some of the lyrics to Frozen! (Promptly fixed that though!).
