As a Wind in the Willows compleatist, I had to watch it, but I didn't have to like it.

With the outsized destruction and the neglected Moley who finds no sympathy for his homelessness, this rendition is ages away from the spirit of Grahame. The Weasels' song was amusing. The actor who portrayed Ratty had the face of a wastrel, not of a friendly country gentleman. Eyuck.

Written by Terry Jones. Directed by Terry Jones. Oh, and starring Terry Jones as Toad. It's really his vehicle. Everyone else is just along for the ride. He spends the entire film prancing and acting doltish.

Pretty much a waste. ( )

Mr. Toad's mad mania for motorcars drives his dear friends Mole, Rat and Badger into a world of frenzy--especially when he barters the fabulous Toad Hall for a shiny red roadster and the conniving Weasals plan to turn it into a dog food factory.
