Pretty decent movie if underwhelming when you compare it to other Aardman productions. Will probably pick it up down the road during a sale.

I wish the films that Aardman made in association with DreamWorks would get released on Blu-ray, Chicken Run
Wallace & Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit and Flushed Away. I was hoping something would get released to coincide with the theatrical or home video release of this film, but it doesn't look like that is happening!

I'll definitely buy it, but it's not a day 1 purchase unless there's some awesome exclusive.

Definite purchase since I missed it in the theatre and love Aardman stuff. I'm with MJW. Sure wish they'd release the Aardman Dreamworks films on Blu.

Forgot all about this movie. I'll give it a rent. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised like I was w/ How To Train Your Dragon.

The wife loved this one. Definitely will pick it up. I too would like to know what is different in the UK one.

I like that fact that it was original called "The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists", but was renamed in the US, as the film company thought it would confuse americans????

I saw this in theatres and it was good fun, but it's honestly only a one-time watch, not a movie to watch a few more times.
