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)

Trivia

A lot of work went into making Constantine the Frog look slightly different than Kermit the Frog:
  • His frill is shorter and wider than Kermit's


  • His eye slits are more horizontal than Kermit's, making him look angrier


  • His mouth was constructed to look like a frown


  • and Constantine's puppeteer Matt Vogel would swing Constantine when walking, giving the illusion of a heavy-shouldered man's swagger.

The usual Muppet rapid fire one liners are missing
8 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At the beginning of Muppets Most Wanted a song a dance number warns us as in all sequels this film will not be as good as the last. They were correct it was a OK film but most of the lightning quick one liners are missing in fact the first half of the movie was dull and slow moving. There were a few bright spots like my Hero Gonzo the Great new routing "The Running of the Bulls Indoors" Animal doing like a 4 hour drum solo. The villain of the film is Constantine "The Worlds Most Dangerous Frog" and a Twin for Kermit with a mole on his right cheek and Russian accent. Someone at the wedding scene is looking for a Usher and finds Usher the performer. The writers and producers missed what could have been a chance for a Awesome line. Tina Fey and Sarah Palin impersonator plays Nayda a Russian Siberian Gulag Warden and there was more than one chance where she could have said something along the lines of "I can walk onto the steps of my Gulag and see Alaska" but no they blew that chance. This film although disappointing to a long time Muppet Fan is one all Muppet Fans should go see. Non Muppet Fans may even enjoy it more because there are no running gags and jokes that make these Muppets films so much fun
