Consensus: While it may not reach the delirious heights of The Muppets, Muppets Most Wanted still packs in enough clever gags, catchy songs, and celebrity cameos to satisfy fans of all ages.

Too much of the joy imparted by Muppets Most Wanted has too little to do with the Muppets themselves.

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.

Is this the best Muppet movie that ever has been or ever will be? No. Is it the worst? Not when Muppets from Space exists. But comfortably in the middle of Muppet canon is a pretty OK, Netflixable place to be.

James Berardinelli

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

The new Muppet movie is as sweet as a bowl of tapioca. And about as interesting.

Jason Bailey

If it doesn't quite manage to equal the total satisfaction of its predecessor, it's hard to get too persnickety about a picture as joyful and sweet as this one.

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.

Brian Tallerico

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.

J. Olson

Knowingly pokes fun at its duties as a sequel - and the disappointment that usually comes with follow-ups - and the results are more than satisfactory.

Even more self-aware than the first and far less funny, "The Muppets Most Wanted" may have a likeable cast, but nobody can pull it off as well as… More

So at the start of this movie there is a little musical number with some lyrics rhythmically explaining that sequels are never quite as good, a cute self… More

The Muppets are back, though their new film seems to vaguely be recreating the amusing if somewhat slight Great Muppet Caper. The same blend of Muppet-staple… More

While 2011's "The Muppets" was an excellent family film, its sequel turns out to be a solid kids movie, lacking the sharp script and creativity… More

The cameo's make up for the rather dyer plot! Ricky Jervais is amusing but not even his comedic talents make up for this failure of a movie!
