Editorial Reviews

A classic Disney tale comes to life in this outrageous comedy adventure filled with high-spirited antics and madcap fun! Bring the whole family along on MR. TOAD'S WILD RIDE, a live-action woodland fantasy adapted from the pages of the classic children's novel THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS. Mr. Toad (Terry Jones) is literally driving his friends crazy with his powerful passion for motorcars -- selling off the town's land to replace each vehicle he crashes! It's up to Mole (Steve Coogan), Rat (Eric Idle), and Badger (Nicol Williamson) to put an end to the lunacy and save "Toad Hall" from falling into the hands of the conniving Weasels, who plan to turn it into a dog food factory! Includes guest star Bernard Hill (LORD OF THE RINGS) and John Cleese and Michael Palin (MONTY PYTHON).

This is a so-called kid's movie that's way too good for kids. It's based on the book The Wind in the Willows. Mr. Toad (Terry Jones) of Toad Hall loves fast cars, crazy inventions, and all the latest fads. He crashes his cars regularly and is spending more money that he has on his enthusiasms. And it seems the Chief Weasel (Antony Sher) and his cronies have been buying up the land Mr. Toad has had to sell. They're going to tear down Toad Hall and build a huge dog food factory in its place. The Chief Weasel plans that the first ingredients to be processed will be Toad and his friends, the meek but brave Mole (Steve Coogan), the picnic-loving, loyal Rat (Eric Idle), and the grumpy, advice-giving Badger (Nicol Williamson). The movie details with great humor their adventures to defeat the Chief Weasel and save Toad Hall.

What makes this movie so special is the loving care Jones took establishing the look of the place and the fullness of the characters. If you pay attention, you'll see some gentle takes on greed, the legal system (John Cleese is a defence attorney who makes an impassioned case in court that his client should receive the maximum sentence), 1984, the protection of our environment, taking responsibility for our actions, and friendship. And the movie is not ponderous or preachy at all. It's great fun.

Disney, which had U.S. rights to the film, did nothing with it. When they finally put it in theaters, after insisting the name be changed from The Wind in the Willows to the name of one of their park rides, they spent almost no marketing money on promotion. Not suprisingly, the movie tanked faster than Mr. Toad's tongue catching a fly.

I've watched it twice now, and skimmed through it again this morning. It should be considered a classic.

I am not afraid to admit that I am an avid python fan. Been watching the stuff since... well, for more than just a few years, let's put it that way. Several years might be closer to the truth, though my parents would call that an understatement. I happened upon this film at a Monty Python fan site. As one of my goals happens to be to watch every Python-related film I can get my hands on, I went to the local hastings and rented it. I liked it. A lot. It was somewhat childish, but was not without its python influences (There is this one scene in which Mr. Toad is being led to jail and there are 2 guards punching each other in the background. If that's not Pythonesque, then I don't know what is). The songs were delightful, most of them anyway. I thought that altogether the whole thing was really creative. There are a few "violent" parts, such as fighting, and something having to do with a dog food factory that reminds me very much of Wallace & Gromit, but nothing that will lead your child to, say, becoming a Gang banger, or anything outrageous like that.

I don't know why the person below didn't like it. I'm 16, the age where I hate EVERYTHING that is childish, and I still loved this movie. It's a welcome change from the big studios who churn out crap in order to sell the songs to other singers like Celine Dion. If you look down upon children's things, and think that anything fun for children is below you, then you wouldn't like this film. For the rest of you, go out and rent this movie now! ESPECIALLY if you are a fan of Monty Python.

As I watched the movie, I had this feeling that I was watching Zooblie Zoo and Monty Python at the same time. The costumes were pretty bad, for example, Terry Jones was just painted green basically in his portrayal of Toad, and I kept thinking of his Python sketch, "croonchy frogs" whenever he appeared to do something really goofy, (like dance.) The acting and special effects in it were great, however, and the movie kept pretty much to the original story line. When it was changed, it was done in such a way that it didn't hamper the plot.With it's semi-distracting over use of Monty Python characters, so-so songs, and poor costuming, I'd strongly suggest renting before buying.

It may take some adjusting to be able to appreciate this version of Wind in the Willows. Although now distributed by Disney on home video, the quick pacing and wild abandon of Disney's 1949 version, which was half of the film The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, is not to be found here. Neither will you find the over-the-top absurdism of "Monty Python's Flying Circus" (1969), despite the presence of four Pythoners, including The Wind in the Willows' screenwriter, director and star, Terry Jones.

On the other hand, wild abandon and Pythonesque absurdism are not completely absent, but this is usually a much more mild, subtle and deliberately-paced affair which more closely follows Kenneth Grahame's original book--except for the plot developments towards the end. Jones has made sure to retain much of the book's symbolism of ideas and phenomena such as class stratification, plus he adds some of his own with more fascistic weasels. But at the same time, he also manages to produce something family and kid-friendly.

Although filled with humor, The Wind in the Willows is rarely--and rarely tries to be--laugh-out-loud funny, even though it occasionally reaches the comedic heights of Python (for example, during the courtroom scene, which features a great cameo from John Cleese). But most of the Python crew have spent the majority of their careers in an attempt to avoid being pigeonholed in that particular style--while most Python fans have experienced years of at least slight frustration at the subsequent void. Jones strikes a nice balance here, and ends up producing a very enjoyable, slightly fantastic, slightly silly romp with its own dramatic sensibilities.
