Light-hearted pirate spoof, with brilliant color and unusual science fiction elements.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this is as much a slapstick comedy as an action-adventure picture. Don't expect even something as serious-minded as the Disney Pirates of the Caribbean series. It's a quite lighthearted, innocent Technicolor romp of the old school. Violence is mostly slapstick, but it's still a movie with pirates in it, so you'll find stabbings and explosions, cannon fire, a flame thrower, and the heroine's elderly father is whipped and tortured (mostly off-screen). Two characters toss around TNT as a joke.
