    The Muppets are back, in this hilarious family comedy, an action-packed adventure about the search for Gonzo`s past.

    When Gonzo begins to suspect that the reason for his uniqueness is because his long-lost relatives are aliens from outer space, Miss Piggy is quick to use him as a stepping stone for her new career as a talk show host. Unfortunately, Gonzo`s on-air declaration that "we are not alone" attracts the attention of a paranoid Government operative who wants to capture him for research.

    Will Kermit, Miss Piggy and Fozzie be able to rescue their beloved friend? If so, will Gonzo choose to stay on Earth with the friends he has always known and loved, or join his family on the mother ship?

    Produced in the Muppets style that generations have come to love, this all-singing, all-dancing comedy follows the entire Muppets cast on a truly unforgettable journey that the whole family will enjoy.

    8 / 10
    Hey hey.

    Content:- Well to be honest I wasnt all that impressed with the films content, but it could have been far worse. Some of the gags were brilliant, some were predictable and some were somewhere in the middle. `Pepe` was hilarious though.

    Video:- No problems here at all. Some of the FX look a bit dodgy, some of them look really good, but they all transfer fine.

    Audio:- Pretty sweet DD mix here. It was very funky during some of the space scenes. The music also came across very well. A very good score indeed.

    Features:- A very good selection here. The `video commentry` thing is absolutely fantastic. To be honest it was actually funnier than the film! I had no idea you could do this with DVD, I was very impressed. The deleted scenes were also really cool, and oddly surreal when muppets mess up their lines. A very nice package indeed.

    Overall:- Well the film may fall short but the DVD does not. The commentry simply has to be seen and the disc is fine technically. A good show here.
