Flush with their revival's success, Kermit the Frog and his friends are approached by Dominic Badguy (Ricky Gervais) to go on a world tour. Unbeknownst 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 him, Constantine impersonates him to use the Muppets' tour as cover for his scheme. While Sam the Eagle and Inspector Jean Pierre Napoleon (Ty Burrell) 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

in the opening scene, when the production crew wraps up filming the closing number of the first film, a Panavision Panaflex camera can be seen. The Muppets was actually filmed with Red One cameras that were supplied by Otto Nemenz International. 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.

Movie's over, people, go home. That is a wrap.
Okay, nice work, everyone. Make sure to fill out your I-9's, and we'll see you on the next one.

This is a big improvement over the reboot starring Jason Segel and Amy Adams two years ago. For starters, the Muppets actually have more than a few lines. The jokes are funnier and the songs are more memorable.
The last film focused on the world's least interesting Muppet, named Walter. His thing is that he's just a regular guy. That's fine but it doesn't make for an interesting movie. Walter has some brief scenes in this film as well.
The biggest thing holding back these new Muppets is that the voices have changed. Oh well, nothing can be done about that.
The fireworks at the end were a nice touch. I look forward to the next Muppet movie.
