Gonzo is contacted by his alien family through his breakfast cereal. But when the men in black kidnap him, it's up to Kermit and the gang to rescue Gonzo and help him reunite with his long-lost family.
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

When Constantin proposes to Miss Piggy, he asks if she would like "to become Mrs. Piggy... or rather, Mrs. The Frog?" "The" is Kermit's middle name (Kermit the Frog ), not part of a double-barreled surname (Kermit The-Frog). See more »
Wow, that was so amazing!
Walter, you did a wonderful job.
Thank you, Kermit. Did we get that?
We got it.
We got it, yup.

Review: After growing up with the Muppet Show for many years, I always looked for award to it coming on TV and seeing the famous people playing with the puppets, but I can honestly say that I have totally grown out of them. The singing got on my nerves but I did find a couple of the tunes quite catchy. The storyline is ridiculous and it seemed to go on forever, but I'm sure that the kids will love it. Watching Danny Trejo, Ray Liotta and Ricky Gervais dancing and singing on screen, it. did become a bit tedious, but the baddie Kermit did make me laugh. There are some great cameos but it's basically made for kids. If your looking to rekindle the old Muppet flame, then this film isn't for you but if you just want to entertain the kids then it isn't bad. Average!
Round-Up: I can't believe that the studios gave a $50 million dollar budget for a Muppet movie! Anyway, Ricky Gervais wasn't the best choice for his role, but he wasn't that bad when he teamed up with the bad frog. It was good to see all of the old characters together again, but I still struggled to get into the film. I couldn't stop laughing when the bad frog was serenading Ms. Piggy and the prisoners escaped prison, but that was about it. Basically, it's not full of wit like the Lego Movie, but it's harmless fun for the whole family.
Budget: $50million Worldwide Gross: $78million
I recommend this movie to people who are into the Muppets Show! 3/10
