Movie Info

Garrrrr! Working at the Pieces of Ate Dinner Theater is less than exciting when you're a busboy. For three moping misfits--Elliot, Sedgewick and George (Larry the Cucumber, Mr. Lunt and Pa Grape)--all they dream of is the day when they can ditch their dishrags and take stage to star in the big pirate show. But with Elliot's timidity, Sedgewick's laziness and George's lack of self-confidence, it seems as if the day to prove who they really are will never come. Things are about to change when a mysterious ball drops from the sky and lands at the unlikely seafarers' feet. A "Helpseeker" sent from the past in search of heroes, the artifact sets in motion a series of events that drags the friends back to the 17th century--and into the belly of certain danger. "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything" must each face their fears--becoming unlikely heroes in a battle to rescue a royal family from an evil tyrant and themselves from living the life of common couch potatoes.

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.

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.

I've seen more exciting no-smoking announcements in theaters.

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