Read Treasure Island instead.
I knew I should have turned the movie off after one of the pirates (Pelle, I believe) let out a big, four-second fart in one of the other pirate's face. But I still gave it a chance. Then, one character pulled down his pants and exposed his buttocks. And this movie is supposed to be for kids?
Kaptein Sabeltann (Captain Sabretooth) was one of the things I grew up with during the 90s. It was a big thing back then, exciting live shows, CD's, movies, board games, theme park attractions, potato chips and toys...Kaptein Sabeltann could be scary at times, but it was also full of light-hearted humor. I just can't remember any stupid fart jokes or naked butt cheeks.
Kids have always been fascinated by toilet humor, but when I grew up, my country's parents, teachers (and even TV shows) discouraged that kind of lowbrow stuff. Suddenly we have adults making TV shows for kids full of toilet humor.
I didn't watch the entire movie, but it also seems that the filmmakers have "Batmanized" Kaptein Sabeltann. He used to be a over-the-top, campy villain, now he's a gruff anti-hero.
Maybe we have become too Americanized. I'm not anti-American, but when other countries "borrow" stuff from American culture, it's usually the worst parts. Like the unfunny fart jokes, bad soap operas/sitcoms, stupid memes and liberal whining. Our own politicians act like Trump and Hillary these days. It's like they're trying to out-idiot each other. It's embarrassing...like this movie.
