, I immediately thought of you, Blondel, and Xanadu when I saw this on Thursday night.
Mad props to who introduced me to The Pirate Movie, an Australian beauty. Roughly, it’s a 1980s send-up of Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance, and even retains 6 of the original songs. I’m surprised I didn’t see it as a kid; my biological father is a huge fan of G&S!
Rating: 4 stars. A must see, especially if you like cheesy 1980s films.
Perfect companion piece: Xanadu.
Available on DVD in Region 2 (Australia, UK) but not in North America except on VHS.
(singing) Give us a happy ending, every time….
