This is a funny and delightful Muppet movie! The adults were laughing out loud along with the kids at the screening I attended. For example, in one scene a group that is against the touring Muppets puts up a sign that says, “Muppets Die” and one of the Muppet characters says, “It looks like they’ve put up the reviews already!” In another scene a Muppet character has the train starting out in reverse, and says, “This way looks good too!” and they keep on going.
Dominic (Ricky Gervais) acts as agent of the tour but he is really in cahoots with Constantine, a Kermit lookalike that kidnaps Kermit and places him in a Siberian prison while he takes Kermit’s place with the other Muppets. Kermit protests when he is arrested, stating, “I’m an amphibian American!” Dominic and Constantine plan to steal the Crown Jewels. Soon Miss Piggy and Constantine as Kermit are engaged, at her insistence, as she doesn’t know the real Kermit is kidnapped. Will Kermit be able to escape and stop the wedding? Will Dominic and Constantine get theirs in the end? You will laugh all the way to finding out! We are happy to give this energetic and funny movie five Doves, our best rating. We award the film our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages. You will love this marvelous Muppet movie! It is highly imaginative. This movie is destined to become a classic Muppet movie!
