    Muppets Most Wanted

    ★★★

    A big improvement over the last outing but still feels like they are trying too hard. Fey and Gervais are reasonably interesting in simple roles. The all star cast is kind of sad and you get the feeling these were the only stars they COULD get. Russian evil Kermit is fun and the Gulag actors and musical numbers are worth watching.

    ★★★★

    It's film making flaws and almost music video moments can distract a bit from the grand narrative. This is Jackman's picture and he is great among a cast of very talented actors.

    Julia Roberts' best performance. Ever. All these actors shine. They understand emotional pain. Disgusting and phenomenal. Honest emotion. Crazy good.
