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

The "special guests" for the Muppets' shows don't quite match their respective locales. The show in Germany features Christoph Waltz, who is Austrian. The show in Spain features Salma Hayek, who is Mexican. The show in Ireland features Saoirse Ronan, who is American (though she did grow up in Ireland). See more »
The sign in front of the (fictional) national treasure museum in Berlin contains several mistakes. It reads "Nationale Schatz Museum", which seems to be translated literally. First of all, national treasure would correctly translate to "Nationales Kulturgut" (national cultural asset). In combination with museum (same word in German), the order would change to "Museum des nationalen Kulturguts" (in order to avoid the ugly dash construction "Nationales-Kulturgut-Museum", which would rise ambiguities since it is not clear whether the Kulturgut or the Museum is national). Further, the grammar of "Nationale" is wrong. One would say "Das nationale Schatzmuseum" but since you wouldn't use an article with that, it would be reduced to "Nationales Schatzmuseum" (mind the 's' at the end of "Nationales"). In this form, it would be the museum that is national, not the "Schatz" (treasure).
To sum it up: The sign is a very sloppy try to imitate a real name and is supposedly unintended funny for German-speaking viewers. 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.

So uh, what do we do now?

When The Muppets came out in 2011 people really liked it and therefore a sequel was made. The sequel Muppets Most Wanted was not as successful as it's predecessor. It wasn't as much a financial hit and people didn't dig it as much and it seems like The Muppets are back to the way they were after Muppets From Space. I actually really loved Muppets Most Wanted. At the time I thought it was better than The Muppets and in ways it is. The jokes are smarter. The songs are better and it feels more like a traditional Muppet movie than it's predecessor but this movie is not without it's flaws. The flaws are that Walter has more screen time than Gonzo and even Fozzie. That's just wrong! And the humans need to take a huge backseat to the Muppets. Tina Fey more than Ricky Gervais and Ty Burrell. Overall I think this is a great Muppet movie but it's so depressing how underrated it is. I hope this is not the end of The Muppets on the big screen. I'm an aspiring actor and filmmaker, maybe I should be like Jason Segel and try to bring them back if nobody else does. Even then I've always wanted to make a Muppet movie.
