Just as its opening number predicted, it's just another uninspired sequel, with a few laughs here and there that just aren't enough to keep it afloat.

I found it kind of boring and I wasn't laughing...

This follow-up to the delightful 2011 reboot is only a shadow of that film, with some mild fun but never the same manic energy that made the previous film such a joy.

I don't want to watch Muppets modeling responsible communication or having a Defining the Relationship talk, but also, I don't want to watch Kermit the Frog stringing along a pig who's worth five of him.

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

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

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.

Muppets Most Wanted is essentially the 'B-Side' to The Muppets. It almost ensures that the Muppets are left to gather dust on a shelf awaiting the desperation of a true fan filmmaker to resurrect them once again.
March 28, 2014
There is plenty of brash, Mel Brooks-style humour here but the plotting becomes increasingly soporific and repetitive.
March 28, 2014
A disappointing sequel that can't replicate the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational qualities of the film that brought Jim Henson's creations back into the limelight.
March 26, 2014
Too much of the joy imparted by Muppets Most Wanted has too little to do with the Muppets themselves.
March 23, 2014
Director James Bobin and co-writer Nicholas Stoller seem to have forgotten what makes their heroes really sing.
March 21, 2014
The opening minutes make for a clever satire of Hollywood's fickle nature and its knee-jerk desire to capitalize on what's hot. Yet just because it's transparent about those intentions doesn't justify them.
March 21, 2014
It plays more like an everyday spoof than a film in love with these characters and what they represent.
March 21, 2014
Opens with a self-referential song that comments on the fact that sequels are never quite as good as the film that inspired them and then goes on to prove the point.
March 21, 2014
If [James] Bobin and company had reigned things in and kept a tighter focus on one, not three, plots...but they did not.
March 21, 2014
The Muppets are on the lam in "Muppets Most Wanted," but sorry, these aren't the Muppets you're looking for.
March 21, 2014
The way that "Muppets Most Wanted" grabs for the green is criminal.
March 21, 2014
A wasted opportunity.
