IT’S BASED ON PIRATES IN AN ADVENTURE WITH SCIENTISTS!!!! AND THE AUTHOR WROTE THE SCREENPLAY!!!!
Hugh Grant does an amazing accent and gives an amazing performance as The Pirate Captain. David Tennant is charmingly buffoonish as Charles Darwin. Brendan Gleesan and Martin Freeman sneak in there too.
An all-around amazing film from Aardman, whom I think I’m going to start calling the British Pixar But With Puppets.
