This 1980s Aussie teen parody/spoof of the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta 'The Pirates of Penzance' follows the story of Mabel (Kirsty McNichol), an awkward and shy teenager who fantasises about romance, adventure and popularity after meeting Frederic (Christoper Atkins), a curly-haired and debonair young man dressed as a pirate at an exhibit in the amusement park. The film retains six (slightly altered for comic effect) songs from the original operetta, along with a host of slightly more rock 'n roll numbers.

The weather is lovely. The bodies are lovely. The cast throw themselves into it like lemmings. But somehow it is like a trifle with too much liquid...Perhaps the 80s hairstyles, perhaps the witless hero, or the camp pirate king. Perhaps the total absence of the irony and whimsicality of Gilbert's original Pirates of Penzance. OR it could have been the new and sickly songs, or the dire choreography and unnecessary 'numbers'.

The story follows an unpopular high school girl, who is tricked by her 'friends' and ends up going out to sea by herself in a small boat. Not the best idea, as she gets washed up unconscious, when her dreams take her straight to a swashbuckling adventure. The storyline is based on the one in Gilbert and Sullivan's the Pirates of Penzance- if you're familiar with it you'll spot the parody!
I can't really say who will find this film as funny as I did, although if you're fond of parodies, are familiar with the Pirates of Penzance, don't take yourself too seriously and don't mind a good old fashioned bit of cheese and a few bad jokes then why not give it a try?
It was great to see it again after so many years.
I do hope the soundtrack will be available sometime soon on audio cd by amazon.co.uk
My fingers are crossed !!
