The holiday season just got a whole lot brighter.

Clever and current without being cynical, smart without being condescending, funny without being exclusionary to grown-ups or to kids.

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.
83
For kids, blessedly unironic by nature until wised up by nurture, the movie is just shiny, funny, and filled with songs.

Slant Magazine
The beloved gang's sweet reunion will melt nostalgic adults into laughter and tears, and maybe kids won't mind drippy new Muppet Walter so much.

The Muppets slaps a smile on your face you won't want to wipe off.

Orlando Sentinel
The musical comedy whimsically and often cleverly revisits the characters, their shtick and and the TV show and movies that made them most famous.

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.

Variety
An unexpected treat. Bright and perky, cheeky but never mean-spirited.

I'm being completely sincere - and entirely complimentary! - when I say that The Muppets represents a career high point for Segel, the comedian who reveals himself to be a whimsical writer, capable singer and dancer and appealing straight man.
