The Waiting Game

Elliot, Sedgewick and George (Larry the Cucumber, Mr. Lunt and Pa Grape) are waiters at the Pieces of Ate Dinner Theater who dream of one day starring in the theater's big pirate ship production. The only problem, and it's a big one, is that Elliot is really shy, Sedgewick is super lazy, and George has zero self-confidence. They're called The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything, after all.


Everything changes in an instant when a strange ball called a Helpseeker drops out of the sky. The Helpseeker is looking for present-day heroes to take back into the past and the next thing the wanna-be pirates know, they're in the 17th century and in a little hot water. Princess Eloise needs their help to rescue her brother Alexander from their evil Uncle or else he'll take over the kingdom!

Doing Something Instead of Nothing

The Pirates Who Don't Do Dnything are forced to face their fears and become heroes - whether they like it or not - in order to save the kingdom. Along the way they come face-to-face with a mechanical dragon, a family of giant rock monsters and a bunch of tiny orange cannibals. Will The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything be able to do something for once and save the day? You'll have to watch to find out.

Bottom Line

The Veggie Tales are unique to say the least, and their stories are funny, but still teach a good life lesson by the end. Fans of the series will notice that while the original show is based on Christian values, there is no obvious religious theme to this particular movie. You shouldn't be disappointed, however. You'll still find a great message about overcoming adversity, facing your fears, and getting up and doing something productive!

The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything Rating:3

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

"It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

“Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
