The classic story of Toad and friends comes alive in Jones's delightful adaptation of the classic children's novel, The Wind in the Willows. When Mole (Coogan) is uprooted from his home by the Weasels, he bands together with Rat (Idle) and Badger (Williamson) to teach the motor-car-obsessed Toad (Jones) a lesson and stop the evil Weasels from taking over Toad Hall. Jones and the rest of the cast turn in sparkling performances in this charming tale.
