Muppet Treasure Island: Directed by Brian Henson, David Lane. With Tim Curry, Billy Connolly, Jennifer Saunders, Kevin Bishop. The Muppets set sail in search of treasure, with Jim Hawkins and Long John Silver.
Possibly the greatest Muppet story adaptation, second in my mind only to their version of The Christmas Carol, As always with The Muppets, the human actors are great foils for the well loved Muppets and Tim Curry really steals every scene he’s in with a devilish grin and glint in his eye. As with the Christmas Carol adaptation, this is no mere child’s film with dead bodies and stories about heads being removed, which as an adult I greatly appreciate.
