User Review

Yo ho ho and a bottle of…fun!

Rating: 10/10

Although this film has taken quite a beating since its release, I fail to
understand why. The songs are catchy, the script is hilarious, and the
performances are stellar.

Let's start with the music. Whether it's the wonderfully fun "Cabin
Fever,"
the touching "Love Led Us Here," or another one of the wide array of
tunes,
nobody can say that they are inferior to any other Muppets
melodies.

The script is full of one liners and clever dialogue that never grows old,
delivered by a cast and vocal talents who are incredibly talented. Tim
Curry, sinister and wonderful as ever, plays Long John Silver to
perfection.
Billy Connolly is also worth mentioning, despite his brief appearance in
the film. And young Jim Hawkins is just as he should be, albeit
surrounded
by a crew of muppet pirates.

This is my favorite Muppet film, and I think everybody should give it a
try
and embrace a different sort of humor-filled extravaganza.
