This is one of the few times I watched something from Aardman and found myself watching the clock...

Toledo Blade

This is a good Aardman Animations feature, from a studio that's proved itself capable of being better than good.

The Pirates! is the first truly great animated film of the year: a painstakingly-modelled laugh riot that boggles the mind while tickling the funnybone.

It's got great vocal talent and well-done animation, but it proves once again that the story is the key ingredient.

We Got This Covered

A rollicking good time that offers enough broad comedy mixed with more cerebral sight gags to ensure this will be a family favourite for years to come.

It's full of jokes for adults that will fly right over kids' heads, but retains just enough plot conflict and slapstick to keep younger audiences involved as well.

Movie Metropolis

The Aardman folks might not have created a pirate film to rival the big screen's best, but they've created a subtle parody of pirate movies that's well worth watching.

Yes, the film feels childish, but in the best possible way.

The Pirates! Band of Misfits deserves two doubloons up. It shivered me funny bone.

The fun, infectious tone is set early on and never peters out. The humor is kind of like Monty Python for kids.

Droll and charming, and will probably appeal more to fans of Monty Python and 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' than to young kids...

This is a very funny, very good looking movie getting lost in the fray.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Warning to all ye who enter: drollery, Pythonesque absurdity, and some smartly silly swashbuckling with history ahead. The dark corners of wooden ships and buildings ground the zaniness in Victorian atmosphere, so even modern jokes sail smoothly along.

The best laughs come around the fringes, with great throwaway gags and Grant's usual self-deprecating way with dialogue.

A few funny lines and a great vocal turn by Hugh Grant. All else is unexciting. Can't see the kids going wild over this one.
