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

In the song 'We're Doing a Sequel', Gonzo mentions that they're waiting for Tom Hanks to make Toy Story 4, most likely as a joke. Interestingly enough, Toy Story 4 (2019) was announced later that year (2014). See more »

Goofs

In the mirror scene, Kermit's and Constantine's boutonnieres are not "reflections." Both characters have them on their left lapels. See more »

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 »

Muppets lost some charm
22 March 2014 | by macdaddy3598See all my reviews

I hate to give the Muppets anything less than a 10, I really do. I'm an enormous Muppets fan, but this movie disappointed on a couple counts.

First, they started using CGI - A lot.

The charm of the Muppets is that... well, they are puppets. That somehow got lost in translation in this movie when some scenes included full bodies of dancing and walking Muppets. In the past movies, Muppets were shown full-bodied only as stop-action; but the CGI thing just takes the fun and mystery out of it.

Another negative is over-saturation of the Muppets. They are everywhere now, from car commercials to my lunch at Subway. Disney is milking the franchise to death, sadly, so the movie doesn't have that special pop.

All that said, the movie starts with a bang. It's a hilarious transition from the last film, though the absence of Jason Segal is quickly noticed. A cameo may have done justice there.

Overall, the movie is fun; though the writing didn't get a lot of laugh- out-loud moments like their other films. The evil Kermit concept was well executed and the human actors were excellent in their roles. A few good songs, but nothing I'd commit to memory to sing on a road trip.

It's worth a watch for every Muppet fan, and overall a strong 7 out of 10.
