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.

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.

There is plenty of brash, Mel Brooks-style humour here but the plotting becomes increasingly soporific and repetitive.

Sad to report that James Bobin's follow-up to his bizarre and adorable 2011 franchise reboot, The Muppets, mostly errs on the side of caution.

James Bobin's direction and writing are assured, and there are some funny moments ...

This may be the best Muppet film since - well - the last one. That's praise enough.

Kermit and co return for a delectable, gag-laden Euro pudding that might just be a Muppet masterpiece.
March 26, 2014
Too much of the joy imparted by Muppets Most Wanted has too little to do with the Muppets themselves.

[It] isn't as giddily entertaining as its predecessor but much of the charm remains, making this an ideal destination for a family excursion.

Kids will enjoy it, and there are more than enough clever gags to keep parents amused. But the film lacks the tenderness and rich nostalgia that made The Muppets such an improbable delight.
March 21, 2014
The songs are infectious, but the rest (despite turns by Tina Fey and Ty Burrell) lacks some of the gang's usual feel-good joy.
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.

The movie overflows with funny moments, and Constantine is a terrific character.

The only thing better than one Kermit is two. And the only thing better than two Kermits is one with a Russian accent.
March 21, 2014
The way that "Muppets Most Wanted" grabs for the green is criminal.
March 21, 2014
A wasted opportunity.
March 21, 2014
Sunny and cheerful, Muppets Most Wanted is a cascade of epic silliness, good for a few fleeting and familiar chuckles.
March 21, 2014
A middling letdown.
March 20, 2014
You don't go to a Muppet movie looking for anything other than a few laughs with beloved puppet pals. Mission accomplished - ka-ching! - on that front.
March 20, 2014
While it may not be sensational, it's still an inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational Muppet show.
