Disney's "Muppets Most Wanted" takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe's most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid, Dublin and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine-the World's Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit the Frog-and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Too much of the joy imparted by Muppets Most Wanted has too little to do with the Muppets themselves."
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"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."
‑ Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
"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..."
‑ Kevin A. Ranson,
"It's difficult to regard Muppets Most Wanted as anything other than a significant disappointment..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"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."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"[It] isn't as giddily entertaining as its predecessor but much of the charm remains, making this an ideal destination for a family excursion."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"The new Muppet movie is as sweet as a bowl of tapioca. And about as interesting."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
""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."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"The plot is ponderous and overloaded, with a running time pushing a not-very-kid-friendly two hours."
‑ Brad Keefe, Columbus Alive
"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."
‑ Michael A. Smith, MediaMikes
"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."
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"The movie overflows with funny moments, and Constantine is a terrific character."
‑ Michael Sragow, Orange County Register
"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?"
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"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."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
"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."
‑ David Stratton, The Australian
