Is this the best Muppet movie that ever has been or ever will be? No. Is it the worst? Not when Muppets from Space exists. But comfortably in the middle of Muppet canon is a pretty OK, Netflixable place to be.

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.

Knowingly pokes fun at its duties as a sequel - and the disappointment that usually comes with follow-ups - and the results are more than satisfactory.

All the road trip conventions are here, but the fun is in the puppetry, the puns, the sight gags, the interaction between Muppets and humans, and the exceptional music.

Muppets Most Wanted embraces its absurdity and fearlessly allows its contrivances to shine-always playing for laughs above plausibility and never taking itself seriously.

( ... ) having two Kermits means there's not enough of the no-nonsense Miss Piggy.

Truth be told, the film's a bit dodgy, too. The gags and songs are not as funny as last time around and the plot drags from time to time, but Tina Fey is great fun as a Broadway-loving gulag guard and the Muppets are as adorable as ever.

While there are many things to like about "Muppets Most Wanted," including its goofy musical numbers and random cameos, it is ultimately let down by a bland plot that is not nearly as engaging this time around.

The Muppets wanted you to laugh and cry. Muppets Most Wanted wants to you cry with laughter.

While The Muppets felt like an event, Muppets Most Wanted feels like exactly what it is: a follow-up. Maybe that's not the worst thing...

"The Muppets" are moving in a positive direction as they start returning to the style and entertainment value embodied in the original movies and TV series.

How can you not love any sequel which, right from the beginning, warns viewers that it won't be quite as good as the original?

It's difficult to regard Muppets Most Wanted as anything other than a significant disappointment...

The plot is ponderous and overloaded, with a running time pushing a not-very-kid-friendly two hours.

Brett McKenzie's songs are the true star and saviour in Muppets Most Wanted. Yet should another Muppets movie be in the works, needed are the right actors to bring something more than a name above the marquee.

This terrific sequel doesn't need to waste any time getting the gang back together and so dives head-long into the type of loopy, cameo-encrusted adventure that made the first run of Muppet films way back in the 1980s so much fun.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Lacking a lot of the eternal fun that made the Muppets stars four decades ago, "Muppets Most Wanted" is a by the book sequel which occasionally rises to funny thanks to its humorous human co-stars.

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.

Sight gags, slapstick and puns abound as you'd expect, with James Bobin again keeping the Muppets moving at a brisk pace, at least most of the time.

Henson would, once again, be proud, of this very funny, very silly, extremely well-made, colourful, joyous movie ... It's all great fun, and it's all very, very Muppet.
