United States DVD cover


With "King George and the Ducky", "Esther... The Girl Who Became Queen", "The Ballad of Little Joe" and "Gideon: Tuba Warrior" in its heels, everyone's favorite motivationally challegened seafarers - The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything are back! And this time, this group of lazy slackers, and Alvin Simon and Theodore a group of pop star-singing leeks team up with a group of girls and break Mr. Marigold's slavery plan. But the pirates who don't do anything don't let on. They have hit a few snags. With four more days left, and as they scramble to come up with the money for some operations by doing very ridiculous things that the Marigolds suggest them to do, including building pyramids of sheep; the league and the Marigolds, of course, become very suspicious. Those operations cost lots and lots of fortunes! If Strawberry is to stand a chance against the businessmen, drastic measures will be taken from being in the belly of a shark and making pirate impostors sing for a painter to pushing the captain overboard and breaking the balcony of a palace. When everyone is focused on this rotten plot, can a kind rhubarb help to get to the root of the problem? Will Alvin, Simon, Theodore and the Pirates find it in their hearts? What will the Marigolds do to the League, the pop stars, and The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything? Or will the people of Ninaborough continue throwing huge tantrums and send Alvin, Simon and Theodore out of town? Watch the video as we find the answers and the inspiration to ponder others in a quest for eternal life, a battle for the kingdom and a lesson in being loyal to others and keep an eye out to see the next trick Alvin, Simon and Theodore have up their sleeves - or wherever.
