The Pirates! A Band of Misfits Commentary
Another thing that I wasn't expecting was most of the story. I was expecting more of a pirate adventure based movie (almost a spoof of Pirates of the Caribbean) and less of a "Romp Through Victorian England" story line. I wouldn't say I'm disappointed but I was surprised.
There really isn't anything overly special about this movie. It isn't like The Muppets where they took a family movie and went into the weird realm more than expected. They really do keep Pirates down to earth and basic for the kids to just have some fun. And from the reaction of the large number of kids in the theatre, they were successful at that. As for me, I didn't find myself laughing really hard or for a long time at anything in particular (except maybe Ham Nite and the red dots). But I did find myself smiling and laughing through most of the film.
It's definitely fun and worth a look. See it but don't pay a whole lot for it.
