Just a couple of weeks ago, The Lights Were Lit, and the Music was played as The Muppets returned to theaters for "The Seventh Sequel to the Original Motion Picture". In this film, the focus is a lot more towards the Muppets themselves, not the humans, which is not necessarily a bad thing. In this film, Kermit the Frog is accidentally mistaken for the World's Most Dangerous Frog, Constantine and sent to the Gulag, which is a prison while the Muppets are on their World Tour with their "new manager" who turns out to really be one of the World's best criminal. But not number one, as made clear by Constantine's song, but maybe Number Two or Number Three. This movie is classic Muppets, and has lots of comedy and small laughs, but not really any emotion, which is fine with me, because a lot of the hilarity in the film makes up for it. But, perhaps, the real stars of the film are Sam Eagle and another security guard. They make such a comedic pair and have many jokes and hilarious moments. Especially as they interrogate The Muppets themselves. Their one song together has a really fun style and is more of a conversation set to music than anything else, but is very, very clever.
Over in the Gulag, Kermit has to help direct the yearly production of the criminals in the jail. Tina Fey also performs her song, 'The Big House', which is not a bad song, but not my favorite by any means. The crime that is attempted by Constantine and Crew is pretty challenging and is also pretty fun. The other fun element of this film is the Miss Piggy and Constantine, or Kermit, wedding and it is a good close to the film. Overall, I really enjoyed this addition to the Muppet movie series. I hope that Disney decides to continue this franchise for many years to come if this, and hopefully future films, are successful. So, if for nothing else, go and see The Muppets: Most Wanted to help the franchise and to aid in the funding for future incarnations of the Muppets.
