What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know this film is a rambunctious, noisy, pirate-themed treasure-hunt action-fantasy -- all the ingredients that kids will love. Kids are in peril, find a dead body, are being hunted by thieves who are after their treasure map, and fall into all kinds of trouble. Beyond the (now-dated) special effects, cavernous (literally) sets, stunts, hideous skeletons, and outsized props, there's a message about being yourself and bonding with your friends and siblings -- even if they're outcasts. Expect some vulgar humor and swearing (including "s--t"). The movie may be too scary for some kids, so know your kid before you watch.
- Families can talk about the excitement within the movie. What about the film inspires adventure in your kid?
- What kind of bond do these friends have? Are the characters relatable?
