Jane Barnet: [turning around to see the Captain] How long have you been sitting there?
Lynch: A very long time.
Jane Barnet: [laughs softly] You move quietly.
Lynch: Yes, girl, I do.
Jane Barnet: It's natural among thieves.
Lynch: Beg your pardon, Ma'am. I'm not a thief. I'm a pirate and good to be called one.
Jane Barnet: Will you give me back what you stole from my family?
Lynch: No.

Unusual casting but fun
27 April 2001 | by (texas) – See all my reviews

You don't watch movies like this for acting . Come on its just silly fun and yes a bit bubbleheaded. Sometimes the big stars do something silly . I saw this at a drivein theater when it came out as part of a double feature . Was a fun movie and i liked the score.Robert Shaw never looked better except for Jaws . A shame he passed away just two years later . Try and spot all the big names ,like Peter Boyle ,Genivieve Bujold ,Geoffery Holder ,Beau Bridges ,Angelica Houston and James Earl Jones.Some may say a tacky mess but it was all in fun . To me a silly spoof of all those grand pirate movies of the past. Enjoy and blow off that Leonard Maltin review .He usually is off the mark.
