Movie Info

Dominic Badguy (Ricky Gervais), the Muppets' new manager, convinces the gang to embark on a world tour. Kermit the Frog doubts that it's a good idea -- a feeling that's proven right when look-alike Constantine escapes from prison, takes Kermit's place, and lands Miss Piggy's sweetie in a Siberian prison. While the frog tries to convince his captors of his true identity, Constantine and Dominic are free to carry out their plan to steal London's crown jewels.

Critic Reviews for Muppets Most Wanted

All Critics (201) | Top Critics (59) | Fresh (161) | Rotten (40)

  • If it doesn't quite manage to equal the total satisfaction of its predecessor, it's hard to get too persnickety about a picture as joyful and sweet as this one.

    June 18, 2016 | Full Review…
  • The magic is largely missing this time. It starts promisingly enough with a rather good song about the pitfalls involved in doing a sequel but, after that, invention seems to flag and many opportunities are missed.

    April 11, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The fact is that Henson never lost his appreciation for non-conformity, whereas Bobin and Stoller are company men at heart. Yet the Muppets have a life of their own, and it's good to see them live on.

    April 9, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A lot of effort has gone into giving it the look and feel of a '60s heist movie. Sadly it had a disappointing opening at the US box office. It deserves better.

    April 9, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • While this may lack the emotional clout of The Muppets star/co-writer Jason Segel's original reboot (leading man Ricky Gervais doesn't really do feelings), it doesn't skimp on good old-fashioned variety entertainment.

    March 30, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It lacks the original's fuzzy heart and the story drags in the middle but the quick-fire scene changes mean you're never too far from the next 'waka, waka, waka'.

Audience Reviews for Muppets Most Wanted

    Enjoyable, but the lack of any real screen time for Gonzo and Fozzie is quite disappointing.

    The funniest line -- "it's a sequel, and sequels are never as good." This just isn't as charming or as feel-good as it should be. I didn't like Constantine, Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey, or the prison. However, my 9yo said he liked it, so maybe kids will enjoy it.

    Definitely not as Whimsical or delightful as the reboot from a couple of years ago. But it has some clever moments, great spoofs and cameos and was entertaining to a point. The plot got dragged out way too long and it was missing Segel and Adams who brought great charm to the first reboot. But, the Muppets are still nice to have back on the big screen. 08-22-2014

    Even more self-aware than the first and far less funny, "The Muppets Most Wanted" may have a likeable cast, but nobody can pull it off as well as Jason Segal and Amy Adams did in the first film. Having cameos is one thing, but having cameos to drive this story was kind of overwhelming and I just expected to see more which didn't make it very special. After Kermit is framed by a criminal mastermind who looks just like him, he joins the muppets and begins to ruin their show. This film has a little less cheese throughout it, but that is also what made the first one so special, so everything this sequel tries to do kind of works against it. "The Muppets Most Wanted" is liable for what it is, but in the end, it is just a cleverly written comedy that does not have much flare. Would I recommend it to fans of the first? Yes, but do not expect too much.
