| Original Score: 2/5
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.
| Original Score: C-
The trio learns that heroes come in all sizes, hardly a revelation to audiences of any age.
| Original Score: 1/4
This is no savvy Toy Story. It's a boilerplate plot like one you might find in any morning cartoon.
I've seen more exciting no-smoking announcements in theaters.
| Original Score: 0.5/4
Aside from the fun musical scenes, the script is pretty lackluster, and the animation could generously be described as old-fashioned.
| Original Score: 2/4
A gentle adventure-comedy that sails a heroes' journey so straight and true that Joseph Campbell would smile.
| Original Score: 3/5
Pirates scores with adventure, humor and a morality tale rather than a standard biblical message.
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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
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.
Humorless, incoherent, and ugly as sin.
