Stop the presses! The crime of the century has occurred, and investigative reporters Kermit, Fozzie, and Gonzo are out to crack the case in this song-filled, star-studded extravaganza directed by the legendary Jim Henson. Our heroes arrive in London to interview Lady Holiday (Diana Rigg), a high-fashion designer whose priceless diamond necklace has just been stolen. But when Kermit mistakes lovely receptionist/would-be model Miss Piggy for her aristocratic employer, it's love at first sight. Unfortunately, Lady Holiday's scheming brother (Charles Grodin) is also wooing the sultry swine -- so he can frame her for another brazen jewel heist! Now it's up to Kermit and his Muppet pals to clear Piggy's name and catch the real culprits. Packed with music, remarkable production numbers, and hilarious cameo performances (including John Cleese, Peter Falk, Jack Warden, Robert Morley, and Peter Ustinov) THE GREAT MUPPET CAPER is the wackiest story ever told!

Critics Consensus: The Great Muppet Caper is overplotted and uneven, but the appealing presence of Kermit, Miss Piggy and the gang ensure that this heist flick is always breezily watchable.

The songs are routine, but the inconsequential plot leaves plenty of time for engaging asides.

Slapstick action in wonderful retro robbery romp.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this is your typical fun Muppet entertainment with some big musical numbers mixed in. Violence is mostly slapstick -- lots of getting thrown from or in front of moving vehicles -- and there's some sexual innuendo that kids will probably miss. Of course, Kermit and Miss Piggy get to smooch once. They also have a glass of champagne at a restaurant.
