The fifth addition to the Muppets' filmography falls just short of all of its predecessors.

Hilarious-even the bits that weren't supposed to be funny (i.e. every time the kid who played Jim Hawkins started singing...)

The Muppets take on another classic tale and come up scoring again. Not their strongest, in terms of the humor, but still a fun movie.

As far as quality goes, the Muppet films are all over the board. From mediocre entries such as Muppets From Space and The Muppet Christmas Carol, to masterpieces like The Muppets Take Manhattan and the 2011 reboot, you can never tell whether you're about to watch dull puppet wizardry, or a new favorite film. Unfortunately, Muppet Treasure Island ranks among the very worst of the Muppet films, and that is a downright shame.
Following the plot of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic, Treasure Island, Muppet Treasure Island is about a boy named Jim Hawkins, who with his friends Rizzo the Rat and Gonzo, as well as a host of other characters, go in search of buried treasure. Of course, their journey will not be without peril, as a dastardly plot concocted by pirates awaits the crew.
