A breezy, mirthful caper enlivened by the comic talents of Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell and Tina Fey.

Not as good as the last one

By boco1105
I grew up on the Muppets movies, and loved the one they released two years ago. My daughter and I can still watch it over and over. This one just meanders along too long and is a movie I can't...

A movie full of laughs and heart, a Must Go for all!

By arianne1986
Muppets Most Wanted was absolutely amazing. The wit and humor is jam packed and appeals to both kids and adults alike. So many moments where you burst out laughing! The music is great and terribly...

It was Great!!

By Shafon828
I thought this would be one of those movies where i'd be incredibly bored while my son laughed away, but it was so entertaining. Made me think of the weekly Muppet Show that came on every Sunday...

Sadly not as good as anticipated

By larkflying
I took 6 children, ages 7 through 13 to see The Muppets Most Wanted. We've seen all the previous Muppet movies and loved most of them, LOVE the TV show, and have most of the episodes on DVD, and...

If you've ever enjoyed the Muppets, go see this movie!

By bgjill
As a lifetime fan of The Muppets, I enjoyed Muppets, Most Wanted. I loved the story line(as absurd as it was) and the many humans in the story made it all the more enjoyable. The film was light...

Muppets never disappoint

By Urgoofy
Don't laugh; four 50-somethings went to see this together and we loved it. As usual, Muppet humor often aims over the heads of kids but is right on target for adults. Ty Burrell steals the show as...

Funny and Entertaining

Very Cute

By jennarouse520
I went to see the Muppets with my almost 5 year old. He loved the last movie and has been eagerly awaiting the release of this one. This one was a little hard for him to follow at times. ...

Love the Muppets!!

By Dadamsmom
I saw "The Muppets Most Wanted" as soon as it came out. I liked it a lot, could have done with a little less singing, but it was funny, charming, and delightful. My favorite was that Animal was a...

Great addition to the Muppet Movie legacy

By allvin9of9
We took the kids (ages 5,6 and 8) and they loved it, each for different reasons. There is plenty of reason for parents to want to see this movie, as well, as there's the usual humor cut in for the big...
