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.

I have to admit that this animated VeggieTales endeavor is far more entertaining and artistically competent than anything offered in the last two Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

The trio learns that heroes come in all sizes, hardly a revelation to audiences of any age.

[A]n attack by Cheetos dentata... is deeply unsettling in a way I'm not sure a children's movie is supposed to be...

Will probably bring more tiny buccaneers into the VeggieTales fold, but some adult viewers may feel like walking the plank before the film is over.

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

The notion of no arms, especially when they're sword fighting and the swords just sort of float in front of their bodies, seems like a long way to go to establish unique cartoon characters.

Humorless, incoherent, and ugly as sin.

Is it a coincidence or an animator's inside joke that the veggies' innocent smiles of joy look exactly like Cartman's when he enters a room of Cheesy Poofs?

I kept hoping someone would arrive on the scene with a Veg-O-Matic and put a stop to it.

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.

This is no savvy Toy Story. It's a boilerplate plot like one you might find in any morning cartoon.

What is missing from the film is any spark of imagination.

Pirates is a film whose insipid, generic plainness is its worse offense.

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

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.

As I wasn't expecting much, I must say that Pirates doesn't disappoint.
