I’ve always been a fan of the Muppets. From their first big screen adventure, the mixed-results of their adaptations, and their lackluster attempts at television movies, I always find the positive under all of that felt. They tried to resurrect the brand in prime-time with Muppets Tonight in the nineties (which introduced a couple of new characters that still appear in the new films), but it didn’t quite stick, and they floated off again into a void of irrelevance. So when Jason Segel announced that he was bringing the Muppets back to the big screen, I was excited… and not disappointed. Now we get Muppets Most Wanted, a sequel that isn’t quite as inspired or creative, but still fun and entertaining.
