Gonzo, and not Kermit the Frog, gets centre stage in this Muppet movie. Always unsure of where he came from or what species he is (and who he should blame his hooked nose on), Gonzo becomes convinced he’s being contacted by his alien family after he starts hearing voices, so heads off to meet them. With a nasty scientist on his trail, it’s up to his fellow Muppets to save poor Gonzo before it is too late.
Packed with celebrity cameos, from GoodFellas’ Ray Liotta to Andie MacDowell, Hulk Hogan and Dawson’s Creek stars Joshua Jackson and Katie Holmes, this is a fun adventure that’s high on laughs even if it is low on plot. Cute stuff.
