Product Description

Children's animated comedy adventure starring the Veggie Tales crew. Larry the Cucumber (voiced by Mike Nawrocki), Mr Lunt and Pa Grape (both voiced by Phil Vischer) find themselves mysteriously whisked back in time to the 17th century when pirates ruled the seven seas. As they help a brave princess rescue her brother from a villainous pirate, they battle evil cheese curls, giant rock monsters and their own timidity to become the most unlikely heroes that ever set sail on the high seas.

Synopsis

For The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything, the second big-screen Veggietales adventure, everyone's favourite computer-animated talking edibles embark on a time-travelling, seafaring journey. Voiced by co-creators Phil Vischer and Mike Nawrocki, George (aka Pa Grape), Sedgewick (Mr. Lunt), and Elliot (Larry the Cucumber) work in mundane jobs at a pirate-themed dinner theatre. Longing for more but too lazy to change, the unmotivated threesome get their wish when a strange object transports them back to the 17th century, and they have to rise to the challenge of being real pirates.
Riffing off of the general themes of The Wizard of Oz and clearly sharing similarities with the Pirates of the Caribbean films, this movie, which is actually based on a VeggieTales song of the same name, uses its silly produce protagonists and their high-seas hi-jinks to instill themes of courage and assertiveness in its young viewers. Those looking for the blatant Biblical themes that are usually present in the popular video series (see the earlier Jonah film) may be slightly disappointed by their absence, but the VeggieTales characters still manage to convey plenty of positive messages amidst their exploits. While Pirates doesn't hit Pixar levels of mass appeal, the movie is sure to entertain small children.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love this film! 7 Sep 2009
By S. Lugg
Format:DVD
My kids and I love this film. We have borrowed some veggietales from friends but the only one we own is Duke and the Pie War - this film is much funnier. My boys love it and have watched it over and over again.
There are a couple of scary moments but not so scary that they take away from the fun - my kids think it's exciting.
The biblical theme is that God equips ordinary people to do extraodinary tasks even when they don't think they are able which is a great truth for kids and adults alike!. However, the biblical concept isn't highlighted quite as much as in other veggietales films but it certainly opens the door for parents to talk to their children about it.
Only downside is that my boys have watched it so much that I now know the script by heart!!!!!

P.S. Some great songs as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking fun 14 Mar 2010
By Dodster TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This may not be the typical veggie tale product. I quote from the introductory information from Amazon. 'Veggie tales...uses its silly produce protagonists and their high-seas hi-jinks to instill themes of courage and assertiveness in its young viewers. Those looking for the blatant Biblical themes that are usually present in the popular video series may be slightly disappointed by their absence, but the VeggieTales characters still manage to convey plenty of positive messages amidst their exploits.'

It is funny, entertaining and has some great music, great animation and great one liners.
My 3 year old loves it and has watched it over and over again. Come to think of it so have I, and I am not yet tired of it.
Not as high end as Disney and Pixar, but very good viewing and very good value for money.
Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality dvd 22 Mar 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Enjoyable Veggie tale that will appeal to children 4 years and above. The older ones will get more out of the story.
If you like stories about pirates you will love the humour and adventures of The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything.

4.0 out of 5 stars "What Kind of B Movie Am I In?" 17 Oct 2008
By Mark Baker TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Imagine a world where vegetables sail the seven seas and the most fearsome pirate is the one with arms and legs, albeit mechanical arms and legs. That's the world of the new VeggieTales release. And it's a full length film.

The movie opens in the 17th century. We are on a ship that is being captured by pirates. While brave Prince Alexander tries to fight them off, he is ultimate captured. Unfortunately, the pirates are being led by Robert the Terrible. Not only is he the king's banished brother, but he has also used mechanics to create arms and legs (well, one leg and one peg leg), making him the most fearsome pirate around. The one thing he wants most is his brother's throne, and he intends to use the prince and princess to get it.

Unfortunately for him, Princess Eloise and the butler Willory (Archibald Asparagus) have escaped capture. And they use a contraption the King has created to send a plea for help.

Fast forward to the present day. At the Pieces of Ate Dinner Theater we meet Elliot, Sedgwick, and George (Larry the Cucumber, Mr. Lunt, and Pa Grape.) They work as Cabin Boys (waiters), but long to be in the show. Unfortunately, Elliot has a list of things he is afraid of, Sedgwick is just plain lazy, and George lacks self-confidence.

And these three misfits are the ones the plea for help finds. Before they really know what is happening, they find themselves on board the ship with Willory and Princess Eloise on a quest to rescue Prince Alexander. Can they become heroes to complete the quest? Or will their flaws spell doom for everyone?

Aside from the characters I mentioned, most of the main characters are new. But keep an eye open for blink and you'll miss then cameos from many of the regulars, including Bob the Tomato.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wouldn't recommend for younger children 31 Oct 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My two and a half year old son loves Veggie Tales but on a much simpler level. Like their silly songs. This show is long and too complex for the younger crowd. I would say under 4 at least. I also miss the Christian aspect of the Veggie Tales. Still good, clean fun but miss the messages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 5 Mar 2010
By jmatt
Format:DVD
Good, clean entertainment. No Bible characters or stories through it like the shorter Veggietales episodes but a simple story that my 3 year old could follow and really enjoyed.

5.0 out of 5 stars This DVD is laugh-out-loud-funny! 13 Jan 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
...if you are a boy of 6 or 3 years old! I felt compelled to write a review as one of the two already written was bad! I think I have EVERY Disney/Pixar DVD that has been made and I have never heard my boys laugh more at any film, or want to watch a film over and over again! I have no idea about the Christian message history with these characters so was not looking out for any message! A vegetable being chased by "cheese curls" with teeth is funny... "I'm going to be eaten by my favourite snack!" has my boys rolling in the aisles! ...try it!
