It's wholesome fun for the whole family.
70
Pirates relies more on classical and pop culture-driven references to deliver its worthwhile message.

The Hollywood Reporter
Slickly made -- in the good sense -- and most entertaining.
63
Simple without being simple-minded, warm without worrying too much about being cool. It's agreeably silly fare for the very small set and not so noisy that parents can't either follow along or take a quick nap.
60
Clever enough to keep adults entertained, even if the story is something of an antique.

Variety
Won't do anything for adult auds, but this second bigscreen adventure from the popular VeggieTales franchise should easily win over tots with its reliable menu of silly songs, easily digestible morals and wholesome (if not always fresh) produce-based characters.

My 3-year-old date had a fine time, pronouncing the movie "very good" and backing up her assessment by going 90 minutes with barely a fidget. Which may actually be the highest compliment any movie can ask for.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Except for one memorable interlude, the film just doesn't have near enough fun blasting spitballs at "Pirates of the Caribbean."

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of ... V8? That's what you get when you cross VeggieTales characters with a pirate yarn.
38
Veggie Tales is a faith-based franchise that uses a blend of a religious/moral message and humor to teach about honesty and forgiveness. But Pirates lacks the humor of the videos and "A Veggie Tales Movie."
