Started 27th August 2012 Finished 3rd September 2012 Just brilliantly silly and wonderful. If you’ve never read Gideon Defoe’s rampant silliness, what are you waiting for? Permission? Than I grant it you. Just go. Enjoy. Be sure to approach with an open mind as it’s very, VERY, silly. But that’s part of the reason I love it. In this latest romp, the Pirate Captain (that’s his entire name) decides to quit pirating and become a beekeeper But his ambitions are challenged by a recently deposed Napoleon. Thus chaos ensues. Epic, hilarious, anti-common sense hilarity.
BWAHAHAHAHA!!! 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.
