Quotes

[first lines]
Billy Bones: I was Flint's first mate that voyage. Three days east of Tortola in the Caribbean, Flint knew an island. That's where we buried the treasure. Gold and blood, they were Flint's trademarks. He'd leave both behind him that day.

Highly underrated
2 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

Probably the most underrated movie of the last CENTURY, "Muppet Treasure Island" is a must see for everyone. Kermit the Frog has a sword fight, for Pete's sake! What fun. The Muppets are hilarious and touching, as usual, the music is catchy, and Kevin Bishop and Tim Curry act and sing beautifully. I especially enjoy the mix of human and Muppet pirates, and the scene with the "visually challenged fiend."
