My thoughts: 

The kids are going to love it!
Muppets Most Wanted opens with a group song about the fact that sequels are never quite as good as the film that preceded them. I was immediately reminded of  The Muppets and how much I enjoyed it. Would Muppets Most Wanted ruin the Muppet movie run for me? Luckily there were plenty of laughs and gags to snap me right out of that mindset. Overall it reminded me a lot of the The Great Muppet Caper with the spirit of the old Muppet Show. 
The madcap adventure takes The Muppets show on the road in Europe where they hire a shady new manager, Dominic (Ricky Gervais).  Behind their backs he conspires with ...well I'm not going to spoil it for you. Let's just say there are plot twists and duplicitous characters. 
Plenty of star power can be found in Muppets Most Wanted.  You'll see celebrities Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, Tina Fey and also special guest appearances by Tony Bennett, Sean Combs, Rob Corddry, Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Salma Hayek, Ray Liotta, Ross Lynch, Chloe Grace Moretz, Christoph Waltz, and more! 
My favorite scenes involved the odd couple duo of Ty Burrell as a French Inspector and Sam The Eagle and Russian prison songs with Tina Fey as Nadya the Prison Guard. I had no idea Tina Fey could sing so well but I knew Ty Burrell would be hysterical. Oh and the flamingos!
Along with the zany antics there are wonderful messages intertwined that The Muppets always deliver so well. I loved seeing the unlikely pair of Walter and Animal teaming up. 
Music, Mayen and Muppets!
Just what we have come to expect from our beloved Muppets. I really like that included in the combo pack is a code for Disney Movies Anywhere. This will be so much fun to travel with. Plus all the Unnecessarily Extended with the laugh-out-loud Ricky Gervais bonus features making this movie well worth adding to your Muppet movie library.
