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)

What has Disney done to the Muppets?!
25 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Oh dear! This is definitely the Muppets worst movie yet. I have been a fan of the Muppets ever since I was a child so I was excited to hear that they were releasing The Muppets. The first movie of this new 'series' was cheesy and so predictable that ever a 3 year old child would know what's going to happen next. Most Wanted adds 'an all star cast' and ever so cringe worthy songs into the mix. Parents if you are looking for a movie to entertain your children this is not it. I think it is time that the Muppets rest in peace... well unless Disney come up with a much better story which will entertain children and adults. If you love the Muppets no matter what then this might be for you.
