"The professional reviewers are right! This movie is CRAP!!"
1 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

An insult to Gilbert and Sullivan, with the only redeeming feature being the Australian coastal scenery. I am not normally fussy, but I only watched this because of family connections – one of them fell in love with it at about age 8, which is about the right age to watch it.

"A Good Old Spoof"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I grew up with this movie and believe me it is so much better without ads. It is chock full of comedy (both intentional and some things that are just so old you have to laugh). The music is great and will have you singing along. A good old spoof, that maintains a good story, with well timed and funny jokes without being completely idiotic (unlike many of the spoofs nowadays).

A very good movie, and only gets better with age.


A parody pastiche of Hollywood's finest films, this musical comedy puts a pop music spin on Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Pirates of Penzance." When plain, shy Mabel falls for handsome Chris, it seems a hopeless fantasy. Her friends are so much more glamorous than she. But on her way to meet them, her boat capsizes and as she slips out of consciousness, her dream of tender romance and high adventure begins... Mabel envisions a colorful pirate crew with a dashing young apprentice named Frederic (Chris), who leaves the ship to set out on his own. Arriving at a secluded cove, he spots Mabel. They fall instantly and deeply in love. Alas, there are many battles to be fought before their romance can truly blossom. And as swords and hearts clash, Frederic and Mabel's beautiful romance begins to shift from dream to reality...
