What is a Muppet? Is it something one is born? Is it something one chooses? Is it a state of mind? Is it a lifestyle?

The Muppets never went away, and "The Muppets" is a celebration of that. It's time to play the music, and it's time to light the lights.

The giddiness that Jim Henson & Friends brought to the original Muppets is missing. The antic energy, the old vaudeville/TV variety show references are just plain alien to modern kids.

A Muppet film that not only lives up to the franchise legacy and, for some, might just end up being one of their all-time favorite adventures with Kermit and the gang.

We Got This Covered

The muppets are back, just like we remember them, with catchy tunes and meta humor. Also, a great cast of cameo appearances is paired with a fun story and iconic characters that haven't been detrimentally modernized.

A luminous and loving tribute to the man who breathed life into nothing but felt and faux fur.

Marvellous. The Muppets manages to revitalise the family classic to create a hilarious and life-affirming delight.

You can tell that these filmmakers grew up cherishing what was best about the Muppets. ... From the script to the colors to the body language, it all has Henson's heartbeat.

Projection Booth

As a died-in-the-wool Muppets fan, this overripe nostalgia trip only almost captures that Henson magic. There are moments of exhuberance, but they're scattered and isolated.

An energetic return to form reminding audiences, both young and old, why everyone should love The Muppets.

Everything here just works. Its weird, colorful world is breath of cinema fresh air. The Muppets is a world where you just have to believe that these "muppets" are real and not question the whys and how of it.

If you're not a joyless maniac with a soul of anthracite then you will work hard to imagine how this project could have been better handled.

Warrants multiple viewings. I am currently considering raising my children on this film. If you don't come out feeling complete joy, you might want to check with your parents that they didn't find you in a crashed spaceship in a cornfield.

Disney's "The Muppets" is a solid family movie that breathes new life into an old franchise. Who'd have thought that were even possible?

Beneath the cleverness you'll find warmth, sweetness and real affection for our fine felt friends.

Henson's Muppets had a nice line in dry wit. They were anarchic. Segel's are corporate stooges.

During The Muppets' numerous highlights, movie-going is rarely this much fun.

Observer [UK]

The film's broad smiles and big-heartedness are bracingly disingenuous, the self-referential jokes well handled. Only the affection emanating from the audience is sincere.

If, like me, you are a parent, there will be something life affirming about taking your children to see these ageless old friends.
