Audience Reviews for The Boy and the Pirates


"Man the rigging and step lively, or I'll have your ears in me chowder tonight you blasted sons of sea cooks!"-Blackbeard (Murvyn Vye) That's about the best of it. I could picture a eight year old kid with a coon skin hat in the 50's loving this thing, but yeah.
