Quite possibly the most out and out fun you'll have in a cinema this year...

Filled with musical numbers to which Amy Adams surrenders herself with wonderful results.

This movie is a great return of great characters to stage that entertain both old and bring in new fans to the felt world of Jim Henson.

The clunky sporadic brilliance of yore is gone; in its place is a big, slick, hollow juggernaut, slathered in nostalgia, sentimentality, and a hollow winking irony meant to substitute for humor or ideas.

It is nigh unto impossible to stay cynical or hardened after more than an hour of watching the wholly earnest irony-free resurgence of Jim Henson's collection of classic characters who don't hold a mean bone in their felt-covered bodies.

I just hoped for more vaudevillian anarchy and less sentimentality. Sometimes, it is a mistake to revisit your childhood with the same expectations.

Although the movie's villain isn't developed enough and the horde of fuzzy characters becomes a bit overwhelming, "The Muppets" doesn't just coast on sentimentality or familiarity.

It's a film for 2012, for the 99 per cent, for the Occupiers who have been criticised as Starbucks-quaffing smartphone revolutionaries seeking a rainbow connection that could only be called 'kermunism'.

None of it comes off as clever as it probably did on paper.

... The Muppets not only restore their name in the movie, but they prove to the audience that they're back and they're still as cute and entertaining as ever before.

Quite simply the most fun I've had at the cinema in ages.
