Critics reviews

Unlike with the previous film, the human characters are mere accessories here — familiar live faces to go along with the familiar felt ones. Indeed, it’s like the reboot never happened. Muppets Most Wanted feels like a film that could have easily been made back during the days of The Muppet Christmas Carol or Muppet Treasure Island. It’s not bad, exactly; the songs are catchy, the cameos are okay, and some of the jokes work fine. Set your expectations super-low, and you’ll probably be fine.
