The Pirate Captain (Hugh Grant), the head of a terribly unsuccessful band of buccaneers, plans to win the award for Pirate Of The Year, despite being vastly under-qualified. A quest to plunder enormous amounts of treasure with the help of his most unassuming crewmate leads to a run-in with English royalty and the entire scientific community.
Another Aardman triumph. The animation house’s most technically ambitious project so far and, if not quite at the genius level of Wallace & Gromit, still a comedy treasure and far too good just for kids.
