From the creators of 2002's widely successful "Jonah - A Veggie Tales Movie" comes a new story of heroism in the beloved Veggie Tales world.  The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything.  Now, we follow the comic misadventures of three animated veggie pals who reluctantly set sail for adventure and discover that real heroes don't have to be tall, strong, handsome or even human.

Garrrrr!  Working at the Pieces of Ate Dinner Theater is less than exciting when you're a busboy.  For three moping misfits' Elliot, Sedgewick and George (Larry the Cucumber, Mr. Lunt and Pa Grape) all they dream of is the day when they can ditch their dishrags and take stage to star in the big priate show.

But with Elliot's timidity, Sedgewick's laziness and George's lack of self-confidence, it seems as if the day to prove who they really are will never come.

Things are about to change when a mysterious ball drops from the sky and lands at the unlikely seafarers' feet.  A 'Helpseeker' sent from the past in search of heroes, the artifact sets in motion a series of events that drags the friends back to the 17th century and into the belly of certain danger.  The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything must each face their dears becoming unlikely heroes in a battle to rescue a royal family from an evil tyrant, and themselves from living the life of common couch potatoes.

I bought it for my five year old grandson in NY. He will love it! It will be mailed to him for Christmas. My five year old granddaughter got to see it before I ship it. She liked it as well! Earlier she told me he did not like the Veggie Tales anymore, but she liked this one.
