After their somewhat triumphant return in 2011's The Muppets, the titular gang is back for the sequel. And if the first new film was a little too interested in nostalgically making the audience like the characters again, the new film lets them have an adventure.

There's something curious about relaunching a famous brand that has gotten dusty. Sometimes reboots are done out of love, but more often than not it's just a cashgrab.
