The Pirates of Penzance, Gilbert and Sullivan’s classic musical comedy of mistaken identity, comes swashbuckling to the screen with all the laughs, songs and stars that made it a long-running Broadway smash! Kevin Kline reprises his Tony Award winning role along with Angela Lansbury, Linda Ronstadt, George Rose and Rex Smith in the story of a roguish pirate king and his adventurous young charge who explore the coastline in search of treasure and romance. Digitally remastered for optimum picture quality, it’s a fresh, funny and colorful extravaganza that’s the very model of a modern movie musical.

The singers are all up to the demands of the music and some sing it in a more modern popular style, which I am not fond of, but it works. Pirates is more operetta than American musical, and that has been retained. The sets are really fun because they are sometimes obviously props with a painted background and other times they have realistic looking backgrounds. I loved being able to clearly notice the obviously stuffed parrot on the pirate's shoulder. One of the greatest scenes is the dancing/singing policemen.
This can be enjoyed by all ages and children will watch it over and over again, so be warned if you don't want to get sick of it.
