Storyline

A young boy with a habit of daydreaming discovers that reality has caught up with his imagination -- with a vengeance -- in this comedy-adventure for the whole family. Bobby (Seth Adkins) is an eight-year-old boy growing up on a remote community in the rural Midwest with his mother (Dee Wallace Stone) and grandfather (Charles Napier), who are struggling to keep the family farm afloat. With few friends and not much to do besides his chores, Bobby entertains himself by retreating into a world of fantasy, where he battles cowboys and spacemen and can always outsmart the bad guys. One day, the town looks as if it's about to be hit with a freak storm, as dark red clouds fill the sky, but it turns out that a portal in time has appeared in the atmosphere, and who should drop through but Jezebel Jack (Tim Curry), a swaggering pirate (or, as Jack prefers to put it, "an adventurer of independent means") from the seventeenth century.

Note the Vote rating number is not correct
2 June 2002 | by mrskywalkerSee all my reviews

Most of the voters gave this movie a 10 so obviously 3.4 average is not correct. The arithmetic mean is 7 which is a much better way to judge the viewer's opinion anyway. The film is really fun, not at all cynical, and highly recommended. Pirates travel through time to our world. Is it in the boys imagination or not? See the film and find out. This tape is not at any video seller yet. I hope it comes out instead of stuck on HBO at 6 in the morning.

It looks like they had a ball making it too.
