AMAZING! How did I miss this!? Where the hell was I when it came out?! I remember vaguely seeing some kind of promotion but I just thought "Ugh, more pirates!" for some reason, despite it being clearly Aardman I thought it was going to be full of stupid American jokes, fuck, it was so British! An amazing voice-cast and the jokes, both verbal and all the beautiful visuals. God, it was lovely! It made me instantly go out and buy it.
Also it made me finally fancy Hugh Grant after hearing that women fancy him for twenty five years, now that he's a clay pirate I totally get it.
