    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    'As long as there are Muppets," muses a little felt guy named Walter, "there is still hope." And indeed, there is something hopeful about The Muppets - Disney's rollicking reboot of the late Jim Henson's furball franchise. show more

    Segel and Nicholas Stoller, who made "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" together, wrote the screenplay for The Muppets with obvious intent: to return these icons to their former glory. show more

    A breezy, keen-to-please attitudes prevails, and director James Bobin (The Flight of the Conchords, Da Ali G Show for TV) moves things along with good cheer. show more

    The love Segel has for the Muppets is a genuine, perceivable and positive quality that suffuses this good-hearted revitalization of the franchise, and if some wish fulfillment sneaks in there too. show more

    It's hard not to be both heartened and a little wistful about the fact that The Muppets is probably as good a Muppet project as it's possible to make without Jim Henson. show more

    The Muppets may have been born out of a desire to revive a dormant franchise that was once a cash cow, but there isn't a single beat in the film that feels crass or opportunistic. This one is from the heart. show more

    The Muppets is both a delightful family film about the Muppets and a winking, self-referential satire about how lame the Muppets are. show more

    Fun, stupid in places but overall very enjoyable, especially once they got to the \"show\" then it was everything I loved about the muppets

    The voices were spot on (0.5 % off if you grew-up with it -- too minute to note). The cameos fantastic for me !!! How many do you want ???? The crowd loved it -- all ages from my 36 to little itty bitty kids to teenagers .. The best part was having the movie make fun of itself as it went along - really hits all levels. If you\'ve never seen the Muppets - this is an excellent introduction to their heart, weird funky humor, and layout. As a Muppet fanatic - I give this an A+.

    Very nice and nostalgic movie! I went with my three children (ages 17 through 24) and we all had a good time!
