It's A Plunderful Life
In The Pirates! Band of Misfits, Hugh Grant stars in his first animated role as the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain – a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side (Martin Freeman, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey, and Ashley Jensen), and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter rivals Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek) to the much coveted Pirate Of The Year Award. It’s a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way they battle a diabolical queen (Imelda Staunton) and team up with a haplessly smitten young scientist (David Tennant), but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!

Not sure what to say about this. No, seriously, I really don't know what to say. This movie is targeted pretty squarely at kids, so I'm probably not being fair. It's relatively harmless, but there's not much to like or dislike. It's just there. I mean, you can't really even hate the movie, or fault it much except for the rather inappropriate music. And that makes it boring. Ultimately, I walked away feeling like it was a movie that didn't need to be made.
