Animated Action: In the 19th century, a pirate captain runs afoul of Queen Victoria as he tries to win the coveted Pirate of the Year award.
The Pirate Captain (voice of HUGH GRANT) wants to finally prove his mettle as a pirate. To do so, he must win the coveted Pirate of the Year award and bring in the most booty (i.e. gold). When he gets to the pirates' Blood Island, site of the competition, he discovers that his rivals Black Bellamy (voice of JEREMY PIVEN), Cutlass Liz (voice of SELMA HAYEK), and Peg Leg Hastings (voice of LENNY HENRY) have looted and stolen a lot more treasure.

So he sets sail for more loot with his trusty crew, who include: his second in command, the Pirate with the Scarf (voice of MARTIN FREEMAN); the Surprisingly Curvaceous Pirate (voice of ASHLEY JENSEN), a female pirate masquerading as a man; and the Pirate With Gout (voice of BRENDAN GLEESON). On the high seas, they come across the scientist Charles Darwin (voice of DAVID TENNANT) who identifies the Pirate Captain's parrot, Polly, as the extinct species dodo.

Told that the bird is worth a lot of money, the Pirate Captain travels to London with Darwin despite it being under the rule of the pirate-hating Queen Victoria (voice of IMELDA STAUNTON). There, the Captain must decide between staying loyal to his pet and crew or giving in to his own selfish ambitions.

Yes, especially young boys who are into pirate lore.
For mild action, rude humor, and some language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
