The Muppets are back! And they're having another great adventure.

The story seems like a poor excuse to let the Muppets do so more and new crazy things. But does it really matter? I don't think so, it's very entertaining and good for more then a few laughs.

The characters are highly amusing and Sam The Eagle as always steals the show! But the human cast is also amazing and forms the best Muppet movie cast. Tim Curry is excellent! And Jennifer Saunders and Billy Connolly are very entertaining. Kevin Bishop however seems like a better stage player then a movie actor.

The movie features some wonderful songs and the music by Hans Zimmer is surprising good! The sets and all are however obvious fake and shot in a studio which is a bit of a shame but it doesn't make the movie less entertaining. Not at all!

Granted that it's not the best Muppet movie every made but still it's worth watching if you like the Muppets or if you like Tim Curry because he really is excellent in this one.
