Trivia

Goofs

When Captain Smollett arrives at the dock to board the ship, he is piped "The Side" by Sam the Eagle. The Side would not be used for a Captain's rank. It is only used for the King or Queen, members of the Royal Family (when in uniform), foreign naval officers and Royal Naval Officers of Flag Rank (Rear-Admiral, Vice Admiral, Admiral, or Admiral of the Fleet).

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.

CABIN FEVER! AHHHHH!
23 January 2003 | by CaptainChunkSee all my reviews

Awsome Muppet Adventure. I don't care how many people hate this movie, I still think it's smart, funny, and amazing. The muppets still have it. Though I agree by most by saying it's not the best Muppet movie, it sure beats the hell outta "The great muppet caper" (How slow was that movie?!). Tim Curry, the greatest and most under rated musical preformer alive, is at his element here. The music is awsome and his one song ("Upstage Lads, this is me only number!") is awsome. This is a good movie. For a pirate movie, and a muppet movie.
