Muppets Most Wanted: One Great Musical Number

hr_Muppets_Most_Wanted_11

Muppets Most Wanted (2014 PG) is fun for kids.  Cameo appearances are thrown in for adults to enjoy, but often they were too quick to appreciate, and mostly they were cameos of old male actors.

The trailer has all the best jokes, and tells the plot well:  An evil frog escapes from prison and changes places with Kermit to use the traveling Muppet show as a cover for a big jewel heist.

In my favorite sequence, Russian prison guard Nadya (Tina Fey) forces Kermit to put on a show with the inmates.  He has them perform “I Hope I Get It” from the musical “A Chorus Line”.  Here is the version from the 2012 Oxygen network reality show “Glee Project Series 2”.

Watch for Kermit and the dancing inmates’ fun scene in this otherwise average movie.
