    Veggie Tales is a faith-based franchise that uses a blend of a religious/moral message and humor to teach about honesty and forgiveness. But Pirates lacks the humor of the videos and "A Veggie Tales Movie." show more

    My 3-year-old date had a fine time, pronouncing the movie "very good" and backing up her assessment by going 90 minutes with barely a fidget. Which may actually be the highest compliment any movie can ask for. show more

    Slickly made -- in the good sense -- and most entertaining. show more

    Simple without being simple-minded, warm without worrying too much about being cool. It's agreeably silly fare for the very small set and not so noisy that parents can't either follow along or take a quick nap. show more

    Except for one memorable interlude, the film just doesn't have near enough fun blasting spitballs at "Pirates of the Caribbean." show more

    Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of … V8? That’s what you get when you cross VeggieTales characters with a pirate yarn. show more

    Pirates relies more on classical and pop culture-driven references to deliver its worthwhile message. show more

    Won't do anything for adult auds, but this second bigscreen adventure from the popular VeggieTales franchise should easily win over tots with its reliable menu of silly songs, easily digestible morals and wholesome (if not always fresh) produce-based characters. show more

    Clever enough to keep adults entertained, even if the story is something of an antique. show more

    I love veggie tales! My teens (yes, teens) love veggie tales! It's nice to be able to sit in a movie and not worry about what my kids will see or hear! This movie is entertaining and hilarious! A great one to take your grandkids to as well!

    We are about to take our 2.5 year old son, Sean and his 7 month old sister to see this movie. It is so sad that we are at a time in 2008 that this is the ONLY G rated movie suitable for these kids to see. Even Alvin, a throwback from the 60's kids era, is rated PG. My patients who saw it said it was definitely inappropriate for toddlers. We will post a full review later today. As a father of 4 children and by no means a super-conservative, I will state the following concerning the USA Today and NY Times reviews: Give me a break and crawl back to reality!! The Washington Post at least took the time and had the intelligence to actually review the film in the context that it was intended. (Do you really think that the Producers of this children's film were trying to pretend that Johnny Depp was playing his "Gay Swashbuckler" part in it?? Yeesh!) The best thing that could happen to these 2 super-liberal institutions that get pawned off as objective journalism is that when Ruppert buys the papers, he fires the whole staff and replaces them with Rush Limbaugh and Curtis Sleewa!Joe Murphy
