QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: While out on a world tour, little do the Muppets realize that their leader, Kermit the Frog, has been replaced by an escaped criminal with nefarious plans.
PLOT:
Now that their variety and comedy act has been reassembled (at the end of 2011's "The Muppets"), Kermit the Frog (voice of STEVE WHITMIRE) and his crew -- that includes Miss Piggy (voice of ERIC JACOBSON), Fozzie Bear (voice of ERIC JACOBSON), Animal (voice of ERIC JACOBSON), The Great Gonzo (voice of DAVE GOELZ), newest member Walter (voice of PETER LINZ), and others -- wonder what's next. They quickly get the answer in the form of Dominic Badguy (RICKY GERVAIS), a promoter who promises to make them even bigger via an international tour of their act. While Kermit isn't sure, the others eventually convince him to sign on Dominic as their co-manager.

Little do they know that he's just using them in a plan he's concocted with super-villain Constantine (voice of MATT VOGEL), the world's number one criminal who's just escaped from a Russian gulag. Since he looks just like Kermit (save for one facial mole that's now been painted over), their scheme is to have others mistake Kermit for him, all while he takes Kermit's place in the act where the performance venues just so happen to be located next to museums, banks and such. Their covert crime spree draws the attention of CIA agent Sam the Eagle (voice of ERIC JACOBSON) as well as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon (TY BURRELL) who clash over how to investigate and track down the criminals.

At the same time, Kermit ends up imprisoned in the Siberian gulag where he must not only contend with hardened criminals including the likes of Big Papa (RAY LIOTTA), Prison King (JEMAINE CLEMENT) and Danny Trejo (DANNY TREJO), but also the guard, Nadya (TINA FEY), who doesn't let anything get by her and has a secret reason for wanting Kermit there forever.

As Constantine and Dominic continue their ruse -- with only Animal figuring it out, although Walter starts to become suspicious as well -- they make their way around the globe, intent on eventually pulling off a legendary heist, all while Kermit tries to figure out how to get himself out of the gulag.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Younger ones probably will, especially if they're fans of the Muppets.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For some mild action.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
