Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Geena Davis and Renny Harlin couldn't cut it with Cutthroat Island. Steven Spielberg nearly got the hook for Hook. But leave it to Miss Piggy and Kermit to discover uncharted gold in the shipwrecked-pirate genre."

"The humor is up to Muppet par, with physical comedy, puns, running jokes, and layered gags...Muppet Treasure Island is grand family entertainment. [new DVD review]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"Lively, enjoyable Muppet madness"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"The Muppets hit the high seas. Hilarious!"
‑ Sarah Wenk, Common Sense Media

‑ Gregory Weinkauf, ÜberCiné
"Pirates and the Muppets turn out to be a natural fit, even without the late Jim Henson."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"...has little to offer all but the most die-hard Muppet fan."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Disappointing Muppet movie. Too much Treasure Island, not enough Muppets."
