Following with my plan of watching all the Muppets movies this year, I went on with this 2nd sequel and, at first, I was rather worried. Indeed, I thought the story was just way too similar to the first movie during which the muppets went to Hollywood to find fame and, this time, they were going to Broadway with basically the same purpose.

So I was looking forward to the idea of Hollywood makaing movies about these felt-skinned anthropomorhs. And while I "felt" that their forays into film had taken a little of their edge off, the basic foundation of childlike irreverance and mature wit was still there, particularly in t"
