I smell a bozo.

Kermit and his friends are treasure hunting freedom fighters that thwart off countless attacks from pirates. Can Kermit and his friends find the treasure and keep it from the pirates or will a new super pirate emerge that Kermit and his friends can't stop?

"I hate my life."
"I hate your life. If I had a life, I'd hate my life too if I had one."

Brian Henson, director The Muppet Christmas Carol, Jack and the Beanstalk: The Real Story, and episodes of Sid the Science Kid and Nightmares & Dreamscapes, delivers Muppet Treasure Island. The storyline for this picture was just okay and not overly interesting. The acting was as you'd expect for the genre and the cast included Tim Curry, Billy Connolly, and Frank Oz.

"Aren't you supposed to be fighting against us?"
"Are you kidding? I love you guys!"

I watched this with my daughter about a week ago off Netflix. We didn't enjoy this as much as Muppets: The Movie, but it was still fun to watch unfold. Overall, this is worth a viewing but nothing special.

"The one legged man brings death."

Grade: C+/B-

I like the songs and most of the characters but it's lost its charm from Jim. But still it's worth seeing once.

A pretty fun spoof of pirate movies. You know it would have had Jack Sparrow jokes if it was made ten years later. While in typical Muppet fashion its often pretty funny but is one of the weaker Muppet flicks because it feels like it has too much Treasure Island and not enough Muppets

Solid classic from my childhood, I don't care whatever problems there are. 4/5 Great

That Cabin Fever song will be stuck in my head for the next two weeks.

For a Muppet movie, it's not very Muppet, although it still has the same energy and gags as any other movie.

My Worst Muppet Movie.C-

Can you ever get enough of the Muppets? Don't answer that. Let's just go with my answer to that one: no, you can't. Give me a stack of Muppet movies -- the good, the bad and the ugly -- and I'll give you my thanks. The Great Muppet Caper and Muppet Treasure Island aren't the greatest Muppet outings, I'll admit, but they have their charms, be it heist-y or pirate-y.

Equally as flat and straight-forward as its source material, Muppet Treasure Island still manages to get across the passion and energy the franchise has been known for, partially due to full role commitment from Tim Curry.

It makes good use of Tim Curry as well as a funny script. The movie never achieves greatness, but it's the muppets. What you see is what you get. I don't think Robert Louis Stevenson would be too appalled by this charming film.

if you like the muppets, you'll probably like this movie

The Muppets are at it again with this take on the classic Treasure Island. Tim Curry does a decent job in his role as Long John Silver, but the rest of the movie lacks pizazz and punch.

a classic timeless film that will live on forever

As we have seen recently with Muppets Most Wanted, the franchise is not immune to the odd bout of sequelitis. However no Muppet's film I have ever seen is completely bereft of ideas. There are enough interesting cameos and enough laughs to satisfy.

While this may be the weakest of the Muppet movies it still has its moments.
April 19, 2014
Classic from late childhood, still gives me a smile after all these years.
April 11, 2014
The roll call is one of the funniest sequences ever.
April 3, 2014
One of my favorites of the franchise. Muppets as pirates? Yes please! The songs are very catchy and the comedy works well.
