Movie Reviews

Avast, me hearties! Thar be buccaneers in Nebraska!
M OBRIEN | Bellevue, Washington United States | 05/01/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Pirates of the Plain centers around a nine-year-old boy (Seth Adkins) with an overactive imagination. Whether it's shoot-outs with the James Gang or laser battles with alien robots, little Bobby's playmates seem so real to him. It frightens his mother (Dee Wallace Stone), while Bobby's grandpa (Charles Napier) thinks it's just Bobby's way of coping with not having many friends and a father that left two years prior. At the same time that Bobby's story unfolds, a pirate captain in 1732 called Jezebel Jack (Tim Curry) has run afowl of his crew of cutthroats. Jezebel Jack has a map to a king's ransom worth of treasure but he wants it all for himself. After killing a man who knew the captain wasn't willing to share, Jack is thrown overboard by the rest of the pirates, and ends up in the wheat fields of Nebraska near Bobby's family's farm! As the two unlikely friends go on a treasure hunt for a strong-box of silver bars hidden by wild west outlaws, the disgruntled crew of Jack's ship, Delilah, also ends up "sailing the amber waves of grain." John Cherry, of Ernest "fame," acts as writor/director/producer of this family adventure film that will truly appeal not only to children but adults too. Tim Curry, as always, gives a great performance, while everyone has very well also. Good production values and a smartly written script makes this a worth-while buy to add to your pirate movie collection."

"LOVED this film! A family film, even with Tim Curry playing a lead character! He usually only has small vilinous parts. He is one of my favorite actors and I loved seeing him throughout an entire movie! He has a GREAT laugh and a playfulness about him."Bobby" is precious, and has a fantastic time with his fantasy friends. But Jack proves to be more than he bargained for!Dee Wallace is sterling in anything she is in.My only complaint was that the film seemed too short!"
Finally released on DVD.

"Pirates of the Plain is one of the best movies Tim Curry has
made. I am a huge fan of Mr. Curry, and am happy to finally own
this movie on DVD. If you are a big fan of Tim's you will definately love this movie. A 9 year old boy, Bobby, is alone on his Nebraska farm when a nasty Pirate Captain, Jezabel Jack, falls through a time warp landing in present day Nebraska(on the same farm as the boy to be exact). Jezabel and Bobby have a good time looking for treasure until the crew of the Delilah fall through the same time warp, and end up on the Nebraska farm to seek vengance against their double crossing Captain. Cast includes: Tim Curry, Dee Wallace Stone (you might remember her from movies like E.T., and Cujo), Charles Napier, and Seth Adkins. Not only a must see Tim Curry performance, but also a very good family movie! Rated PG for some violence. See Tim as pirate Long John Silver in Muppet Treasure Island (another good one for Tim fans, and also another good family movie)."
