Storyline

Davie (Adam Wylie), a cabin boy who was betrayed and marooned by Captain Lucky (Leslie Nielsen) on Pirate Island, sets up booby traps with the help of a monkey named Chester to catch Lucky and his new crew when he returns to the island to recover a treasure he buried there. The captain, with his French first mate Pierre (Eric Idle), soon returns to recover his treasure. The pirates are caught in Davie's booby traps, including crabs, a bee hive, and a springy cactus.

Pirates 4D
24 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I believe this is also the film that is used in the Pirate 4D show at Thorpe park, just outside of London. Rumours over the past few years have suggested it is to be replaced, but it has not been yet. A fun family entertainer, that has lost its ability to surprise due to being around too long. It contains a number of extra effects in addition to the usual 3D displays such as buzzing seats and water squirted at you in synchronisation to the film. The overall experience is good, and the presence of well known stars such as Leslie Nielsen (the king of spoof), and Monty Python's finest, Eric Idle, add to the credibility, but with them both playing supportive roles to a young boy, this does little to add to the depth of the characters. In truth, it is a real short, made to entertain theme park guests, and as such should not be compared to a movie or TV show, but if it is to be compared, then the acting is very cardboardy and lacking in any conviction.
