The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: A VeggieTales Movie Reviews

Austin Kennedy
Sin Magazine

While the movie is harmless, it lacks a certain spark to be really entertaining. Lots of the jokes are flat and obvious, without being awful.

Not only did I want to go to sleep the entire time, but I wouldn't watch this movie again if you told me my life depended on it.

As I wasn't expecting much, I must say that Pirates doesn't disappoint.

Young children appreciate all the bouncing shapes and bright colors (speaking of which, you might wonder why Robert the Terrible is a darker shade of green than any of his relatives), but anyone over six will be bored early and often.

I kept hoping someone would arrive on the scene with a Veg-O-Matic and put a stop to it.

Like steamed veggies: Good for you, but bland.

San Antonio Express-News

The notion of no arms, especially when they're sword fighting and the swords just sort of float in front of their bodies, seems like a long way to go to establish unique cartoon characters.

While there's adventure and clever gags... I could have done with a little more silliness and some more songs like 'The Hairbrush Song' and 'Bellybutton.'

The colorful but limited animation can seem static on the big screen, but the gentle humor and equally gentle lessons will appeal to younger children and long-time fans.

It's full of mild goofiness and equally mild messages about believing in yourself. It's all good-natured enough. It just isn't actually good.

Will probably bring more tiny buccaneers into the VeggieTales fold, but some adult viewers may feel like walking the plank before the film is over.

I have to admit that this animated VeggieTales endeavor is far more entertaining and artistically competent than anything offered in the last two Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

The trio learns that heroes come in all sizes, hardly a revelation to audiences of any age.

This is no savvy Toy Story. It's a boilerplate plot like one you might find in any morning cartoon.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

It's a much better film than the last big-screen Veggie outing, with good-looking character design, catchy songs, a wisecracking script and more skillfully disguised messages.

Aside from the fun musical scenes, the script is pretty lackluster, and the animation could generously be described as old-fashioned.

A gentle adventure-comedy that sails a heroes' journey so straight and true that Joseph Campbell would smile.
