It's the Muppets - no surprises, but that's not a bad thing.
on 23 November 2000
In the most recent Muppets film, Muppets in Space, the best things about a Muppet film - the witty song lyrics, the subtle visual gags, the true humour of the bizarre - were sadly lacking. Treasure Island gets it all right. It's more grown up than Christmas Carol, with slightly edgier humour despite the fact that Christmas Carol had a darker storyline, but still manages to entertain the kids. Despite great characters and a fantastic role for Miss Piggy, the movie is stolen by the horde of rats, who hilariously parody humans taking a sterotypical cruise. Watch out for them also in more serious scenes! This film will please both kids and older Muppet enthusiasts. If you've enjoyed previous Muppets films, this one is well worth checking out.
