Despite including some of the darkest overtones of any of the Muppet movies, [it] is undoubtedly the sweetest and most nakedly good-natured, almost to the point of dysfunction.

Not as good or as hip as its predecessors, but the Muppet gang remains fairly charming.

During the 94 minutes of this delightful movie, the Muppets graduate from college, hit New York, are parted and reunited minutes before curtain-up, with Kermit saved from amnesia by a right hook from Miss Piggy.

The fact that this plot is not original does not deter you, Kermit, nor should it. It's still a good plot.
