**** out of 5 Stars
So, if you’re a fan of the first, which, let’s face it, you most definitely are, then this will be everything you had hoped for and more. It’s just a brilliant comedy caper, and thankfully loses some of the sentimentality that came with the first film, which had mawkish tendencies. This is a somewhat darker offering and one that focuses more predominantly on the story, and the film benefits as a result. - Stefan Pape
Everyone is in fine form including English director James Bobin, returning and co-writing with the first installment’s co-writer Nicholas Stoller. The sequel’s strong suits are the musical numbers, a breezy love for absurdity and running gags.
Whether this follow-up to their amusing 2011 feature, Disney’s reboot of the late Jim Henson’s 1970s-‘80s era films, is as good or not won’t matter much to fans. Certainly the franchise remains in fine shape. - Kirk Honeycutt
