Three lazy misfits - very timid Elliot (Larry the Cucumber), lazy Sedgewick (Mr. Lunt) and no self-confident George (Pa Grape) - dream of the day of putting on a show about pirates. With their own problems of might not having this dream come true, they soon find themselves traveling back in time into the 17th century and begin a quest to rescue a royal family from an evil tyrant, and learn about being pirates.

Did You Know?


Before this movie, another film known as "The Bob and Larry Movie" was planned. The film would've explored the origins of Bob and Larry and how they've met. The film would've also featured humans. But the film was forced into cancellation due to the bankruptcy of Big Idea. There have been other attempts to get the film back into production but have proved unsuccessful. There are several pieces of concept art for the film online. Phil Vischer stated in a tweet that he has the script for the film but can't show it due to legal reasons. See more »


Elliot: Look at us, we're walking rocks. We don't wear any shoes or socks! La la la la la la la!

Similar to past VeggieTales - yet different
12 January 2008 | by hripka-2See all my reviews

Positives: An above average kid movie, with enough adult references to keep the parents interested. Not as hyperactive a movie like other modern movies aimed at children, a plus. A decent moral message.

Negatives: For those expecting a biblical message, as with other VeggieTale productions, you will be disappointed. There are analogies to biblical themes, but nothing explicit. The idea of the "helpseeker" floating golden ball, a major element in the movie, which is a magical device that helps and guides the main characters throughout, had a sci-fi, mystical aspect to it. The very idea of a "helpseeker" was against the very character of what I had come to expect from past VeggieTales productions.

As a kids movie, I would give it a 7. But for those expecting a VeggieTales biblical message, look elsewhere. My disappointment over the moderation of their message reduces my rating.
