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.
Kermit and Fozzie are newspaper reporters sent to London to interview Lady Holiday, a wealthy fashion designer whose priceless diamond necklace is stolen. Kermit meets and falls in love with her secretary, Miss Piggy. The jewel thieves strike again, and this time, frame Miss Piggy. It's up to Kermit and Muppets to bring the real culprits to justice.Written by

The laundry truck, on which Miss Piggy escapes from prison, was labelled "Big House Laundry", and the address is 1 Starch St. See more »
The voice over the CB radio when Piggy radios in clearly has an American accent. See more »
I sure could use something from one or more of the basic food groups.

At the opening of the film, Kermit, Fozzie, and Gonzo are riding in a hot air balloon and commenting on the opening credits. Sample dialog: "Wow, a lot of people worked on this movie.", "Nobody reads those names anyway, do they?", "Sure. They all have families." See more »
Kermit, Gonzo and Fozzie float in on their balloon. Kermit and Fozzie are reporters and Gonzo is their photographer. The guys miss a jewel heist against Lady Holiday (Diana Rigg) happening right in front of them. They travel to London to interview Lady Holiday. They stay at the Happiness Hotel where they find many of the other Muppets. Miss Piggy wants to be a Holiday model and gets a job as the receptionist. Nicky (Charles Grodin) is Lady Holiday's irresponsible brother. Kermit mistakes Miss Piggy for the real Lady Holiday.
I love the Muppets and they know enough to highlight the stars. The caper is nothing special and it's an excuse to have a plot. It doesn't add much to the Muppets. Nevertheless the little guys are still full of charm. Also sending them to London doesn't do much to add to the comedy. This is good for anybody who loves the Muppets (which should be everybody).
