31 March 2014 Film of Choice at The Plaza Tonight - Muppets Most Wanted. I grew up with The Muppets, I think they are the most ridiculous group of characters ever invented, yet somehow it works. With the release of the last film the Muppet franchise entered a new, more modern era, and this film follows on from that. Packed to the rafters with stars, this song and dance film retains much of the old Muppet magic and encompasses modern storytelling and technologies. This film tells the tale of two frogs, one pig, one unscrupulous tour manager and a mole (not the furry kind you find digging underground). Under the guise of a sellout world tour, Ricky Gervais along with Constantine the worlds most dangerous frog are plotting dark and dastardly deeds and the Muppets fight to right the wrongs that are being done. Look out for cameos from Lady Gaga, Tom Hiddleston, Ray Liotta, Frank Langella, James McAvoy, Josh Grobin and Celine Dion to name a very few. Also look out for a homage to 'that hat' worn by Princess Beatrice. Sometimes you need a lot of nonsense in your life......especially on a Monday evening.
