The Pirates! Band of Misfits

Accompanied by his ragtag crew, an enthusiastic pirate captain (Hugh Grant) sails the high seas and dreams of besting his bitter rivals, Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek), in a quest to win the coveted title of Pirate of the Year. The captain's quest takes him and his comrades from the exotic shores of Blood Island to Victorian London's foggy streets. Along the way, they battle a clever queen and join forces with a young scientist named Charles Darwin (David Tennant).

Did you know that the main challenge of Charles Darwin's scientific career was how to attract a girl? That Her Serene Highness Queen Victoria was in fact a ninja? For top-notch historical research and lowbrow high jinks on the high seas, there's no topping "The Pirates! Band of Misfits." This send-up is a dead man's chest of laughs. Presented in a blend of claymation, computer graphics, classical cartooning and 3-D, it's the most technically ambitious effort yet from England's Aardman Animation. It's not Aardman's best by a long shot, but the tale's seafaring shenanigans are leagues above most animated ho-hummery.
