Horrible movie, and very unrealistic

One of my favorite Muppet movies! It's nice that this one isn't dominated by humans save for Tim Curry and the boy but Tim Curry fits right in with the Muppets. He is one in human form.

I remember watching this quite a bit back in the day as a kid. This was actually my first true exposure to the Treasure Island story and while it does have the main points of that book (to a point) it definitely has that Muppet feel to it all. Young Jim Hawkins (Kevin Bishop), goes on ad adventure after Billy Bones (Billy Connolly) dies giving him a map to Treasure Island where endless treasure awaits. Along with his friends Rizzo and Gonzo the three hire a crew led by Captain Kermit the Frog. On the ship Jim meets the kind, but mysterious Long John Silver (Tim Curry). Little does Jim knows, but Long John has much more to him than first meets the eye. Overall, a solid Muppet film that has some great musical sequences and some very funny moments. It's held up quite well for a movie that came out 22 years ago. I can't recommend this one enough and although some of the jokes are kinda corny I found myself still laughing along to this not so serious retelling of Treasure Island.

Alright, so this isn't very good. The kid is in over his head, the songs are fairly mediocre, & the direction is egregiously lazy. But can we just appreciate how perfect Curry is within the Muppet universe? He totally buys in to the idea of talking puppet-creatures, and he makes such a charismatic pirate. Still, neither he, nor the sardonic and anarchic Muppet humor, can make this any better than "meh". Almost the worst of the otherwise stellar franchise...if not for the abysmal Muppets from Space.

Set sail with the Muppets going to treasure Island and enjoy seeing them work as a team, you know they tend to be silly.

This movie is a let down. Terrible pacing, horrible story, not enough Muppets, horrible song placement, and horrible singing from the actors. Horrible. 1.5/5.

A classic. Fun story, great music. The best muppet movie.

3.5 stars! A very enjoyable farce and the production value is very insane for a muppets movie. While it totally works.

As a child's first exposure to the tale of Treasure Island, this isn't a bad start. The characters, both the human and classic Muppets, are very fun to watch. Tim Curry might as well be a living Muppet, so he fits right in. The songs are also extremely catchy and will have you singing them for a long time to come.

However, I must say, I feel the film hasn't aged too well. It still has its enjoyment factor, but a lot is lost in the years between childhood and seeing it as an adult. And with some many other kids films still holding up so well, you can't really make an argument that that's what happens to all these kind of films. Fun, but there are certainly better Muppet adventures to be had.

Muppet Treasure Island is a consistently entertaining and hilarious film, with all the zaniness, music, and heart the Muppets are known for.

The muppets + professional pirates = masterpiece.
½ July 21, 2016
The pirate tale has some clever lines as this is an ordinary Muppets family film with same levels, especially the humorous comic. (B)

(Full review coming soon)

The fifth addition to the Muppets' filmography falls just short of all of its predecessors.

A very, very fun entertaining Muppet movie with Tim Curry as Long John Silver. That, for a Muppet movie, is genius casting. I highly recommend checking this out.

I love the Muppets and always will, but I struggled through this.
