The Pirates!’: Film’s delights too easily washed away | 2 stars
The delights of ‘Pirates’ wash away too easily.

Special to The Star
The Pirates! Band of Misfits takes place in a nasty little alternate universe. Queen Victoria is a raving psychopath. Charles Darwin is an idiot. And the guy who steals for a living is a lovable outsider, mostly because he doesn’t go around randomly stabbing people like his “Pirate of the Year” competitors. He does aspire to their “greatness,” though.
