I find that the all-kids scenes are quite boring, if not annoying, while the pirates scenes are pretty cool and amusing, with real laughs here and there. It's a good thing that the film starts with the latter, otherwise I don't believe I would have watched more than a few minutes.
Sure, the adult cast is much better than the underage one; that's to be expected. Also, I'm an adult, and not a young one, so there is that. But mostly, and I guess according to the script, the kids play it serious (disciplined, in military uniforms and all that) while the grown ups play it cartoonish over the top and are the only ones having fun.
This is not an average movie in the usual sense: rather an alternation of good and bad. Take your chances for the laughs if you can stomach the inarticulate whining of the heroic duo. When you will be entertained, you'll feel like you really deserve it for enduring the juveniles. Or, just keep a finger near the fast-forward button to skip all pubescent torture.
