"The Muppets is clever and current without being cynical, smart without being condescending, funny without being exclusionary to grown-ups or to kids."— Bill Goodykoontz , Arizona Republic
"I've never seen a movie so perfectly balanced between unabashed nerdiness and hipness. It's transcendent that way."
— Wesley Morris , Boston Globe
"Blending self-deprecating comic asides with high-spirited showmanship, the movie captures the essence of Jim Henson's classic 1970s TV show and 1979's The Muppet Movie."
— Claudia Puig , USA Today
"It's time to see The Muppets, it's time to see this show."— Richard Roeper, Richard Roper.com
"These are the same old, adorable Muppets, as sweetly innocent and likable as ever. Winking at itself, the movie is casually, amusingly self-reflexive."— Stephen Holden , New York Times
