You can’t hate a sequel that sings a song where they say that sequels aren’t ever as good as the first one. It’s like they’re admitting that they can’t live up to the hype of the first Muppets film, but they’re hoping you enjoy the film anyway. It’s kind of a silly sequel which is bolstered by a ridiculous amount of cameos. There’s also a cute joke about Rizzo getting almost no screentime.

For the most part, it’s a silly film with silly performances from Fey, Gervais, and Burrell. It also makes very little sense, but it’s a Muppet movie… so whatever. Some of these actors have never done anything this silly before. Christoph Waltz looks uncomfortable doing this kind of comedy.

I think the kids will like it. Adults? Maybe if you’re a big Muppets fan. Otherwise, it’s just a so-so film.

FINAL GRADE: C+
