The original concept was based upon the song "I'm Going to Go Back There Someday" which Gonzo sings in The Muppet Movie (1979). Muppeteer Dave Goelz recorded a new version of the song (in 4/4 time) but it was not used in the film. It was included on the soundtrack album, however. See more »

What a great day.
That was probably the best day of my whole life. There's just one thing I still don't understand.
What's that, Gonzo?
Why did they ask me to build a jacuzzi?

Gonzo is seeing mysterious messages from his alien family. He is kidnapped by government agents, and the gang has to rescue him.
It's a little dark for a Muppets movie. Jeffrey Tambor is overplaying the evil agent. The whole tone of Gonzo's incarceration is too evil. It gets way too serious no matter how much silliness is going on. The animal testing on Rizzo has some funny moments. Like always, there are a lot of cameos. I love Miss Piggy fighting Josh Charles. I always love an angry Miss Piggy. Besides the serious tone, this Muppets movie sorely misses the traditional song and dance routines. At least, they end with Celebration, but there are no original songs. It just doesn't feel like a Muppets movie. I love the gang, and that's all I have to recommend about this movie.
