Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Performance of a Classic Play This is a DVD movie of a stage performance of the Pirates Of Penzance from 1983. In my opinion, Kevin Kline steals the show with his comical performance of the Pirate King character, maintaining the integrity of the character through song and dance. The DVD includes subtitles, which are very helpful for following the flow of the content in the musical numbers where the wording is hard to make out (usually because of the rapid pace of the songs), however there are numerous typeos the use of wrong words in the subtitles. It would have been nice to see a few more special features, interviews with some of the actors looking back on the performance or discussing aspects of production, but apart from the issues with the subtitles, it's a great value for this very witty and fun movie (and a movie that's safe for all ages... my 3 year old even loves it for the slapstick elements). 10/07/2010

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Musical If you like musicals, and enjoy a sense of the ridiculous, you will appreciate this film. Has a lot of clever verse and full of comedic moments. 11/23/2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by Defective Copy This DVD had problems at the start with the sound, but once I got passed that, it was OK. I decided not to pursue returning it and waiting for another copy, because it would have been too much of a hassle. 10/08/2010
