MUPPETS MOST WANTED
SEVEN, 7pm, PG ( 2014)
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.
