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)

Crazy Credits

When the credits begin to roll, Sweetums starts pulling them up on a rope. Fozzie comes in to help, followed by the Swedish Chef. Dr. Bunsen Honeydew arrives with an invention to pull the credits up automatically. He pushes the button but the credits go by too fast. He reverses it and the credits scroll up on their own at normal speed. See more »

Nonsense, but I love it!!!
31 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

31 March 2014 Film of Choice at The Plaza Tonight - Muppets Most Wanted. I grew up with The Muppets, I think they are the most ridiculous group of characters ever invented, yet somehow it works. With the release of the last film the Muppet franchise entered a new, more modern era, and this film follows on from that. Packed to the rafters with stars, this song and dance film retains much of the old Muppet magic and encompasses modern storytelling and technologies. This film tells the tale of two frogs, one pig, one unscrupulous tour manager and a mole (not the furry kind you find digging underground). Under the guise of a sellout world tour, Ricky Gervais along with Constantine the worlds most dangerous frog are plotting dark and dastardly deeds and the Muppets fight to right the wrongs that are being done. Look out for cameos from Lady Gaga, Tom Hiddleston, Ray Liotta, Frank Langella, James McAvoy, Josh Grobin and Celine Dion to name a very few. Also look out for a homage to 'that hat' worn by Princess Beatrice. Sometimes you need a lot of nonsense in your life......especially on a Monday evening.
