Aardman Animation, the claymation wizards behind 'Wallace & Gromit' and 'Chicken Run' take their turn at every little boy's favorite trouble-maker: pirates! Hugh Grant voices the Pirate Captain in charge of the most inept swashbucklers this side of the Atlantic. The plunderers' very-busy-schedule includes: trying to win the "Pirate of the Year" award from their dreaded competition, escaping the wrath of Queen Victoria and befriending a young Charles Darwin, who has been kicked out of England for his recent studies. Your little ones will have to keep up with all the slapstick gags and clever wordplay, but they'll go bananas for Mr. Bobo, the sarcastic chimp.
