Stop motion movies have to be the number one favorite type of movies that I enjoy and so when the kids asked to watch this I was more than happy to say "sure thing." This is about a ship full of pirates whos captain longs to win the prize of number one pirate, but he just isn't rotten enough, they end up catching the eye of a scientist who notices that they have a pet Dodo! They then have to fight off the advances of the Queen who requests Polly (the Dodo) as a pet but has other nefarious plans for the bird.

I love that it is a real mash up of characters and personalities within the crew of the pirate ship and this adds a lot of fun to the movie. The fact that the typical parrot on your shoulder has been replaced as a dodo is wonderful and I love how it is dealt with. This movie takes aspects of the time and gives it a new twist, I thought the Queens plans were rather different, not what I was expecting and also gave the kids something to think about.

This si a delightful movie with plenty of laughs for the whole family.
