Great kids movie!!!
3 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tim Curry is a fantastic pirate. I was thrilled by the similarities between his earlier performance here and Johnny Depp's in "Pirate of the Caribbean". The characters are very similar and each gives it their own special touch. His performance more than makes up for the small faults in the movie.

Also notice the similarities between DeGroot here and Pintel in PotC and the also other pirates. Note how PotC uses the monkey ("Jack") instead of the witch doctor. It would be interesting to know how much this movie influenced the writers and actors who did PotC. There's not a copyright case here, but there are too many similarities for it to be simply a coincidence.
