Critics Consensus: The Pirates! Band of Misfits Is Certified Fresh

Summary

This week at the multiplex, we've got a little something for everyone. There's Aardman's stop-motion animated comedy "Pirates! Band of Misfits" with a vocal performance from Hugh Grant; the Judd Apatow-produced romantic comedy "The Five-Year Engagement," starring Jason Segel and Emily Blunt; "Safe," an action-packed chase thriller starring Jason Statham; and "The Raven," a period whodunit starring John Cusack as Edgar Allen Poe. Aardman Animations, the folks behind Chicken Run and Wallace & Gromit films, make animated features the old-fashioned way: using stop-motion claymation. With their patented mix of heart and raunch, Judd Apatow's productions - including, but not limited to, Knocked Up and Bridesmaids -- have scored big with audiences and reviewers. Back to Article
