I LOVE THE MUPPETS.So far these little pieces of cotton and felt have not done me wrong.. and this is no exception.
I grew up on the muppets, I cried when Jim Henson kicked the bucket. I recoiled in terror when I heard about The Christmas Carol without Jim! But It was masterful. His son has honoured his father so well with what he has done.
Treasure island is cool as hell , BUT ONLY IF YOU ARE A FAN' If not fuck off and rent Hellraiser 4 and jack off over its cheesyness, then go to film school and become another pretentious arselicker.
This has Tim 'I lost the plot but now Im back' Curry as long John Silver. Kermit as Captain Smollet, Gonzo and Rizzo as Gonzo and Rizzo. It is just perfect.. apart from the annoying twat as Jack.
The songs are cool, the sets are cool, the jokes are funny (I miss films that actually make me laugh) and the cameos are cool. (Billy Connolly, Jennifer Saunders)
So please do yourself a favour get this out and give it a chance and regain that piece of humanity you lost after you sat through this summers great piles of toss.
I always contradict all my film ideals when it comes to the muppets..LONG LIVE THE MUPPETS!
