Blu-ray Release: Muppets Most Wanted

August 12, 2014

Muppets Most Wanted Blu-ray

Today, Disney is releasing Muppets Most Wanted on Blu-ray.  This time around, the Muppets take their show on the road across Europe, naively hiring Dominic Badguy (Ricky Gervais) as their manager.  Things take a turn for the worse when Kermit is replaced by Constantine, who is using their shows as a coverup for elaborate jewel heists, leaving Kermit at a Russian gulag run by the strict Nadya (Tina Fey).

Although this followup to The Muppets doesn’t reach the same brilliant heights as that delightful 2011 film, returning director James Bobin acknowledges this right off the bat, allowing us to just sit back and enjoy the less focused but still fun Muppets Most Wanted.  This is an easily amusing way to spend time with these beloved classic characters, a film that modestly sets out to entertain and ultimately does just that.  You can read my full review right here.

The Blu-ray includes an Unnecessarily Extended Cut and the Statler and Waldorf Cut, The Longer Longest Blooper Reel in Muppets History, a music video for “I’ll Get You What You Want” and a “Frog-E-Oke” track.

Muppets Most Wanted is 107 minutes and rated PG.  The extended version runs for 124 minutes.
