Among the most pleasant surprises of 2011 was the return of Jim Henson's Muppets in The Muppets. An emotional reunion filled with all the classic Muppet ingredients - memorable songs and zany comedy - it made a huge splash among old and new fans alike. Whether that winning formula could be repeated in a sequel has been the subject of debate among those who lovingly grew up with Sesame Street and later The Muppet Show, but who also worried that Disney might not give it the free reign it deserved. Luckily, Muppets Most Wanted recaptures that magic in many ways, but forgivingly misses in a few others.
Muppets Most Wanted is rated PG for being warm and hugable and has a runtime of 112 minutes.
