MUP­PETS MOST WANTED

SEVEN, 7pm, PG ( 2014)

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

Ker­mit is back in this child- friendly se­quel to the 2011 movie, and this time he plays two char­ac­ters. When The Mup­pets go on a world tour with their show, they are caught up in a Euro­pean jewel heist, with Ker­mit framed by his look- alike crim­i­nal, Con­stan­tine, “the world’s most dan­ger­ous frog”. This time around Amy Adams and Ja­son Segel have ex­ited, with co­me­di­ans Tina Fey and Ricky Gervais ( pic­tured) in on the ac­tion. How­ever, their sig­na­ture styles of hu­mour are miss­ing, with Gervais lack­ing his sharp wit as a crim­i­nal pos­ing as a pro­moter, while Fey’s dry sar­casm evap­o­rates as the guard of Gu­lag prison, where Ker­mit ends up. Full of cameos and boppy, clever songs, if you like The Mup­pets you’ll en­joy this movie. Oth­er­wise, save it for the kids.

One of the gang: Ricky Gervais with Miss Piggy and Ker­mit.
