Storyline

Flush with their revival's success, Kermit the Frog and his friends are approached by Dominic Badguy to go on a world tour. Unknown to them, this is all part of the sinister plan of Constantine, the world's most evil frog, to become the greatest thief of all time. After making sure that Kermit is jailed as himself, Constantine impersonates him to use the Muppets' tour as cover for his scheme. While Sam the Eagle and Inspector Jean Pierre Napoleon investigate, the Muppets find their boss seems strangely changed even as Kermit desperately attempts to escape to stop the impostor. Only when Walter, Fozzie and Animal realize the truth is there a chance to prevent Constantine from pulling off the crime of the century. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

I really wanted to like it...
9 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I took my 7 and 8 year old sons to watch this at the cinema.

It was a holiday treat. The trailer made it look fun. I wanted to like it. I kept looking across at my boys, hoping to see signs of enjoyment on their faces. I didn't

They didn't complain afterwards, just noted that nothing really happened in the film, and didn't mention it again - unlike films they really enjoy and rave about for days afterwards.

Perhaps I just wasn't in the mood. Perhaps it's just not 'my cup of tea'. Some people seem to have written good reviews...

But for me this was a wasted two hours and I came out feeling slightly depressed that I'd planned a day out around such a disappointing film. There was only one person in the cinema who laughed aloud.
