Rating: ****

Cast: Carey Elwes, Andre The Giant, Billy Crystal, Fred Savage

A cute and clever fantasy comedy about how true love conquers all. When a young man (Carey Elwes) is torn from his true love, he comes back as a pirate and has to fight a series of villains to rescue her from the evil clutches of a tyrant king. Quirky offbeat characters and clever humor help make this a charming and thoroughly enjoyable film.
