Like steamed veggies: Good for you, but bland.

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.

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.

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

Pirates scores with adventure, humor and a morality tale rather than a standard biblical message.

Imparts the Bible-inspired storytelling parents and kids have come to expect from VeggieTales in a less obvious but as-fun-as-always package

This second bigscreen adventure from the popular VeggieTales franchise should easily win over tots with its reliable menu of silly songs, easily digestible morals and wholesome (if not always fresh) produce-based characters.

Clever enough to keep adults entertained, even if the story is something of an antique.

The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything has just enough unassuming cleverness to keep you from checking your watch while the little people in your company get wrapped up in the color and clamor.

The film offers plenty of kid-level humor (as well as a few references adults will pick up on), a decent story and, as you might guess, a positive message.

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.
