    Not worried, gang. At the time these posts began to arrive, Rotten Tomatoes had the MMW reviews at 40% positive, but some much better reviews have joined the fray and it's now up to 67%. I expect this figure to rise the closer we get to the release.

    (And I might add that two of the movies opening this weekend have RT ratings below 25%...so it could be a LOT worse!!!)

    That's much better. We had one by someone completely joyless, and 2 by "Where's Jason Segal?" 67% isn't great, but at least it's more on the positive side now.

    I just saw the official credits listing on Muppet Wiki. So there's actually "LA Performers", "UK Performers", and "Additional UK Performers". First time one of the movies did performer listings like this.

    Louise Gold was listed merely under UK Performers, as opposed to it saying that she performs Annie Sue. Hopefully Annie Sue still gets line at least.

    The credits list a few characters I haven't seen in any of the footage that's appeared online. Characters like Pops and Bobo. I'm not surprised they'll be appearing, though.

    Considering the first character you mentioned appeared in the "Food Fight" Muppisode, I'm not really surprised either. Also, Bobin and Stoller seem to love these characters who haven't been seen in a long while just as much as we do (I remember Bobin speaking of his love for Thog and Link Hogthrob in the commentary for 'The Muppets') and it looks like one of their goals is to bring them back. I really love and admire that and it makes me feel confident that all the characters are in the right hands. I know they most likely didn't have any involvement with the Muppisode, but I'm assuming they brought that particular character back first in MMW and then did the "Food Fight" Muppisode after filming the movie.

    I'm more surprised that he didn't show up in The Muppets, since the character was in a number of productions around the time. Maybe they did have the puppet on set but none of the background puppeteers bothered to use him for any scenes.

    Now I'm wondering how many of those credited characters get big amounts of dialogue and how many just get one line or so. The Muppets credited a number of characters who only had one line (like Marvin Suggs) but also credited Rizzo, who didn't have any lines. Of course there were also characters who got dialogue who weren't listed by name in the credits (Wayne and Wanda, Link Hoghtrob).

    The credits list Robin, hopefully that means he'll at least get a line. And there's no credit for Dr. Strangepork, I hope he still gets some dialogue.

    I just saw Muppets Most Wanted. I'm not going to give away any spoilers but I think all Muppet fans will be happy with the movie as I loved it.:)

    What the actual frog?! My local cinema is giving the option to watch the movie either as normal or in 3D....Since when is the movie supposed to be in that format??! I doubt it would be worth the cash watching it in 3D when it wasn't intended to have that. I think the cinema guys are kidding themselves to be honest....
