The only thing better than one Kermit is two. And the only thing better than two Kermits is one with a Russian accent. Throw Tina Fey into a gulag, force Ricky Gervais to play second fiddle to a nefarious frog, stick Ray Liotta in a chorus line and you have a sense of the zany extremes to be found in "Muppets Most Wanted. " After the magically nostalgic return of the fuzzy-wuzzies to the big screen in 2011's "The Muppets," it's natural to think of "Most Wanted" as a sequel. Don't.

"Pretty Smart" (citywide) takes us to an exclusive girls school in idyllic Greece. There, the girls separate into warring groups of stuffy "Preens" and rebellious "Subs," cavort erotically and frolic on the beaches. And, incessantly, they take off their bikini tops. But crises loom. Their headmaster bullies them, deals cocaine and sells porno loops secretly taped in their rooms. Their favorite teacher is fired.

Dear SOS: I am in love with Nook Bistro's Caesar salad. I have made several attempts at home, but still fail to re-create its mustardy masterpiece. Can you use your powers of persuasion to coax out the secret? SARAH HOLBERT Venice Dear Sarah: The layers of flavors, with two kinds of mustard, roasted and fresh garlic, flash-fried capers and ciabatta croutons set this Caesar apart from other versions. Nook chef and co-owner James Richardson developed the recipe.

Celery sticks are ubiquitous at picnics, but no one would ever mistake them for elegant. Well, not the way they're normally served. Here, in place of the fake orange cheese spread, we've got a delicate, fresh-tasting puree of salmon. The only thing it has in common with the other is its color.

That's how Michael Mina does Caesar at American Fish at Aria in Las Vegas. Sure, the recipe calls for more than a few ingredients, but it can be assembled from start to finish in about an hour.

A cat-and-mouse thriller imported from Paraguay, "7 Boxes" evokes the developing-world amorality and senseless crime caper of "City of God," the 2002 Brazilian sensation that earned four Academy Award nominations, including one for Fernando Meirelles' slick, hyper-stylized direction. But whereas Meirelles seemed to apply absolutely every cinematic trick in the book, "7 Boxes" directors Juan Carlos Maneglia and Tana Schémbori aren't as hell-bent on making an impression. Their film boasts a rather universal premise: Teenager Victor (Celso Franco)

When Jim Henson's menagerie of talking animals and fish-throwing vaudevillians made their big-screen comeback in 2011's "The Muppets," Kermit the Frog and company faced down a greedy oil tycoon named Tex Richman to save their old theater from demolition. In their newest cinematic adventure, "Muppets Most Wanted," set for release from Disney on March 21, a more dangerous foe lies in wait for the performers - a criminal mastermind named Constantine who happens to bear a striking resemblance to the troupe's genial impresario.

The Kickstarter-backed film version of the cult-favorite teen TV series "Veronica Mars" has taken another step on its journey to theaters with the release of its first trailer, which finds star Kristen Bell up to her old sleuthing tricks in the seaside town of Neptune, Calif. Though the mystery series, which ran for three seasons on UPN and the CW, never found mainstream success and was canceled in 2007, it did attract an ardent core of fans who have since clamored for a movie. They got the chance to show they were serious back in March, when Bell and series creator Rob Thomas reunited to launch a Kickstarter campaign with the goal of raising $2 million to fund the film.

“Wonderfalls” (20th Century Fox DVD); “Bent” (Hulu). It will always be the case, and more often than not, that good television series are canceled before their time (and, as seems increasingly important in a serial world, their conclusion). Still, as we do with the real people of Earth, we can celebrate the life even as we mourn the death. Here are two shows cruelly cut down in their prime that nevertheless managed to tell what feel like complete stories, and both of which are still available for you to see. In stolen moments over the last couple of weeks I rewatched, in its 13-episode entirety, “Wonderfalls,” a sweetly cynical 2004 romantic fantasy whose creative team included Todd Holland, Bryan Fuller and Tim Minear, a television Tinker-to-Evers-to-Chance.

There's little magic to be had from watching "Now You See Me," a splashy, noisy and frankly preposterous action caper about a quartet of illusionists with a Robin Hood complex. For all the talent up on the screen - and one can't fault the performances - the movie just doesn't deliver. This is partly due to the split focus of the script by Ed Solomon and Boaz Yakin & Edward Ricourt (based on a story by Yakin & Ricourt) that rarely allows the viewer sufficient time to side with the good guys or the bad guys - or to even identify which is which.

The most resourceful cook I've ever known was James Beard. I assisted him at various times for 11 years, and I remember two particular occasions when his ingenuity saved the day. Once, we arrived at a large department store in Chicago where he was to do a cooking demonstration. We had all the necessary ingredients for preparing the food, but we discovered that there was no stove or hot plate.

"Now You See Me," which opens Friday, is a caper thriller starring Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo and Oscar-winners Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine. The film is about an FBI agent and an Interpol detective on the hunt for a team of young illusionists who pull off elaborate bank heists during their performances and hand out the money to their audiences. The heist/caper genre has been popular since the silent era and has run the gamut from noirish thrillers such as John Huston's 1950 "The Asphalt Jungle" and Stanley Kubrick's 1956 "The Killing" to broad comedies like Stanley Kramer's 1963 hit "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.
