The Pirates! Band of Misfits

A motley band of ruffians, perennial losers of the Pirate of the Year Award and not so much terrors of the high seas, plot to win the prestigious honor in a scheme involving \Queen Victoria, Charles Darwin, his ship The Beagle, and the last known dodo. "The Pirates! Band of Misfits" is an amiable stop-motion animated feature, geared more towards kids than adults, and not quite up to par with some of the other releases from Aardman.
