This is a fun little riff on the mystery/heist movie

Like its predecessor, this film is its own best fan.

The usual pleasures are all here, but the puppeteers seemed especially intent on giving themselves logistical challenges this time around.

Perhaps the shallowest of the three classic Muppet films... But even an imperfect Henson movie is bound to have quite a lot of charm.

Muppets in London on a retro musical robbery-romp.

That first film with the muppet crew had to be a success; this time it was more difficult. Nonetheless, the caper plot that Henson and company worked out manages to hold adult interest for quite a while.

During their late-70s heyday the Muppets won huge TV audiences with their corny puns and showbiz in-jokes, but stretched to feature length the formula loses some of its snap.

My least favorite Muppet movie. But it's still the Muppets, so it's worth a viewing.

Too much Miss Piggy. I always hated Miss Piggy. Kermit was too good for her.
