The second sequel to the Muppet cinema franchise, and as cute, fresh and funny as any others. In fact, as you get older you realise what a clever line the scripts of the show and movies skated between slapstick and satire.

Now firmly part of each other's DNA, the Muppets decide to go to New York to try and get their show on Broadway. It proves more of a challenge than they anticipated, but they forge on with their own inimitable style.

I might be looking back through rose coloured glasses and I might be biased about the films because I loved the show so much growing up, but didn't we all?
