After Sony Pictures dumped this film after it's 1997 US theatrical release, Terry Jones struggled trying to get this film published, but no Hollywood distributor wanted to take it. That was, until in 1998, Walt Disney Home Video bought the American rights to the film, added in a few sound effects and even changed the title after the name of their ride at The Walt Disney World Resort, "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" (despite it closing at the same year). It was released onto VHS in 1999 and onto DVD in 2004. See more »
A real life interpretation of Wind in the Willows.

In the end He gets arrested for stealing a Motor Car, Crashing it and assaulting a police officer. He then gets sent to jail for 100 years. While he is in jail, the weasels plan to blow up Toad Hall, his home. So, Luckily Rat and Mole Come up with a plan to rescue him, but will they get to toad hall in time? This is a great Movie a highly under rated. It is a great movie for all of those fans of Monty Python as it has 4 of the Python's in it, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, John Cleese and Michael Palin. This Movie is rather weird and random and does have the odd funny joke. This movie at time can be rather confusing, but it all joins up in the end. The all comedian cast really brings the characters to life, as well as their over the top costumes do as well. Steve Coogan does a very good job as the timid mole, and at ties it is hard to tell it is him. Terry Jones additionally does a marvelously comical job as the insane and arrogant Mr. Toad. Plus Eric idle does a commendable job as the clever Rat. This is a great Movie for Python fans, and for all ages, but maybe more suitable for the ages 7 to 12 mainly.
