  • So much potential

    By Movie Critic2147
    I am a fan of the muppets, and when I heard this movie coming out, i was genuinely excited to see what they could come up with, it has a great concept with potential but they managed to screw it up. The character development was the worst part. They went from hating each other to being best friends in 5 minutes with no emotional value. This could of been such a great movie
  • Worst movie in years

    I usually love movies like this, but this was unbearable to watch.

    Almost EVERY purchase of this movie was by someone who was either curious or optimistic (as I was) and I rented it and STILL feel ripped off. I didn't think it possible to ruin a puppet movie, but these guys did it. ABSOLUTE GARBAGE, there are better edited videos on YouTube and more creative puppet videos too. ANGRY I EVEN RENTED IT.

    The plot line is old and too well worn to be interesting anymore. Making the puppets harshly treated minority didn't really add anything to it. The dialog and action was predictable. It felt like the puppets were just used to be naughty, to try to shock, at seeing puppets in sexual situations. Talking dirty. Taking puppet-drugs. Which didn't come across as funny, shocking or even interesting. I did enjoy watching Maya Rudolph as "Bubbles", the PI's bouncy secretary. She was about as much fun as the movie contained. And that wasn't enough to help the movie any.
  • It not the worst movie of the year period

    By Superhero145
    Ok I just want to make something clear this movie was pretty good and it not the best but it is worth time watching if you like a crime comedy or something to enjoy late because it will make you laugh but overall I like the movie and it is worth the money must!!!!!
  • Wonderfully terrible

    It’s irreverent, and gross. While the plot is contrived and convenient, the actors lean-in and make it work. This is an r-rated muppet movie, and on that standard it gets 5 stars.
