Gonzo is contacted by his alien family through his breakfast cereal. But when the men in black kidnap him, it's up to Kermit and the gang to rescue Gonzo and help him reunite with his long-lost family.
Kermit and Fozzie are newspaper reporters sent to London to interview Lady Holiday, a wealthy fashion designer whose priceless diamond necklace is stolen. Kermit meets and falls in love with her secretary, Miss Piggy. The jewel thieves strike again, and this time frame Miss Piggy. It's up to Kermit and Muppets to bring the real culprits to justice.

During the opening musical number, as Nicky Holiday makes his getaway, the studio ceiling lights are clearly reflected on the hood of his car, which is ostensibly driving on a city street. See more »

How do we get in?
I suggest we ring the door bell.

At the opening of the film, Kermit, Fozzie, and Gonzo are riding in a hot air balloon and commenting on the opening credits. Sample dialog: "Wow, a lot of people worked on this movie.", "Nobody reads those names anyway, do they?", "Sure. They all have families." See more »
This film is definitely a comic masterpiece. A great improvement over the earlier MUPPET MOVIE, which seemed more like a faltering first step into feature film techniques; this has a strong plot, bright characters and keen timing. It also has great support from the comic greatness of John Cleese, Joan Sanderson, Jack Warden, Robert Morley and Peter Falk.
Diana Rigg and Charles Grodin (in his best movie) manage to hold the central human characters together, up against the bright lunacy of the Muppets. Lady Holliday's expression on seeing Miss Piggy enter in her swimsuit is worth the price of admission alone!
PS: My mum just loves the bit where Kermit does up his zipper!
